Let IOGEAR Answer the Phone, with Help from the Sun

December 29th, 2010

Green living means different things to different people. Some folks pursue a completely sustainable lifestyle, recycling everything and surrounding themselves in green building materials while monitoring and negating carbon emissions to reduce their footprint. For others, not littering and recycling paper and plastic goods is enough of an effort to help the planet. No matter what your view on green living, harnessing power from the sun to make life more convenient is a good idea. With increasingly mobile lifestyles and smart phones turning our cars into moving offices, the demand for hands-free mobile phone accessories has never been higher. Combine this with recent legislation in many states that makes handheld cell phone use and texting illegal while driving; and finding a solution to hands and clutter free in-car communications can even become a legal issue. Fortunately, IOGEAR is a strong advocate for green technology and has crafted mobile phone accessory solutions that make driving safer, a philosophy that inspired the Solar Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit (GBHFK231). Our cars are filled with enough clutter before we have multiple charging cables running from the dashboard. The hands-free car kit is an excellent passenger since it uses the sun's solar energy to wirelessly place and receive phone calls from Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones while the driver concentrates on navigating through jumping reindeer, holiday revelers and tipsy sledders who may be enjoying the winter season. Great as a belated gift for busy professionals or yakking teens, our friends from TigerDirectTv.com even created a video about the Solar Bluetooth Hands-free Car Kit that provides more details below. IOGEAR will also have a newer version of the solar car kit, now with caller announce text-to-speech technology (GBHFK331) along with other USB, KVM and convergence through connectivity products on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. If you interested in checking them out, you can visit us in Central Hall, booth # 13427. IOGEAR emphasizes the conservation of natural resources to both employees and customers through its GREEN initiatives program and “Road to a Million Trees” campaign. In partnership with Trees for the Future, one tree is planted for every product purchased on the IOGEAR site or through an IOGEAR GREEN initiative partner. Have you gone hands-free? How about hands-free and green? We look forward to hearing your experiences here on the blog comments section or at our Facebook page.
