Nova Scotia and Quebec have recently been subject to a new law that bans the physical use of cell phone while driving. Sony Ericsson has released a new Bluetooth car speakerphone called the HCB-150.
This size is only 5.1 x 3.1 x 1.0 inches and weights 180.0 grams… so there will be no excuses that this cannot fit anywhere inside your vehicle. The OLED screen displays the caller’s name, while a voice announces it verbally. In addition, the HCB-150 displays who’s calling on its screen has “Tilt sensors” to keep the screen positioned properly and allows drive safe while you talk. The HCB-150 is compatible with the K550i and K850i and and non-Sony Ericsson mobile phones.
The HCB-105 is 5.1 inches and weights 89 grams and compatible with most Sony Ericsson phones and with the following: Nokia 6111, Nokia 6230i, Nokia 6288, Nokia E65, Nokia N75, Nokia N95, Motorola K1, Motorola L6, Motorola U6, Motorola V3, Motorola V3i, Motorola Z3, Samsung D900, Samsung E900, Samsung X820, LG Prada, LG Shine, LG KG800.
The HCB-120 is a little bit bigger and heavier than the HCB-105 as it is: 3.8 x 3.0 x 0.9 inches and weights 110 grams. Compatible with most Sony Ericsson phones and with the following: Nokia 6230i, 6288, 6300, E65, N73, N95 Motorola K1, L6, U6, V3, V3i, Z3 Samsung D900, E900, U600, X820 LG Prada, Shine
