Motorola H500 Bluetooth Headset

Motorola, Inc. and Skype today announced the first Skype-certified Bluetooth headset solution in America, the Motorola Wireless Internet Calling Kit. The Motorola Wireless Internet Calling Kit enables Skype users to experience the freedom of wireless while making free, unlimited voice calls over the Internet.

Comprised of a Motorola H500 Bluetooth Headset and PC850 PC Adapter, the Motorola Wireless Internet Calling Kit also includes 30 free SkypeOut minutes so users can make Skype calls to mobile and landline phones without additional charges. To experience wireless communications, users plug in the Motorola PC850 PC Adapter to equip traditional laptops and PCs with Bluetooth technology, load the required software onto the PC and follow a simple, step-by-step procedure to establish the cordless connection between the PC and Motorola H500 headset.

The Motorola Wireless Internet Calling Kit is the latest offering from Motorola and Skype. Leveraging Motorola’s strength in seamless mobility, advanced technologies, devices and accessories along with Skype’s rapidly-growing global user base and rich voice and messaging communication tools, the companies aim to provide greater connectivity options and access for Skype’s more than 66 million registered worldwide users.

With up to approximately eight hours of talk time and a lightweight, ergonomic fit, the Motorola H500 empowers Skype users to embrace wireless connectivity for Internet calls — up to 30 feet away from a Bluetooth-enabled PC. Skype users can also have calls automatically forwarded to their compatible Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones when away from the PC and use the Motorola H500 Headset to wirelessly conduct cord-free conversations on their mobile phone.
