Review of JawBone Icon and Dial2Do at Wall Street Journal

Wall Street Journal reviewed the JawBone Icon and the DialApps, including Dial2Do, yesterday:

Dial2Do and the JawBone Icon : one touch access to the Dial2Do Handsfree Assistant!

Aliph, the people behind the Jawbone suite of Bluetooth Headsets, have just announced their new line of headsets: The Jawbone Icon. And we’re delighted to announce that Dial2Do is one of the launch partners for their new “Dial Apps” concept. ┬áCNET has provided an in-depth review of the new line-up here.

Aliph has really gone to town on this new line-up of headsets, and has several innovations on board, which they have grouped under the name MyTalk. MyTalk lets you can customise core features of the Icon headset from the web at mytalk.jawbone.com (live soon), including voice personalities, and a new range of Dial Apps – essentially one button access to some of your favourite services – including Dial2Do!

Users can log in to MyTalk and set Dial2Do as the default app to be called when the Talk button is held down. This provides one-touch access to the Dial2Do Handsfree Assistant from the JawBone – simple, convenient and safe – especially if you’re driving.

We’re delighted to be one of the Dial App launch partners for the JawBone Icon, and we look forward to bringing one-touch access to all your favourite services – email, text, twitter and more – to JawBone users everywhere in 2010 and beyond.

Late addition: in depth review from the Wall Street Journal here.

Installed Handsfree with Dial2Do: drive’n’talk

Yes, yes. Busy bees are we at Dial2Do HQ. At CES today we announced another partnership for the Dial2Do Handsfree Assistant. With our partners at Enustech, we’re proud to be launching a new installed hands-free car kit called the drive’n’talk (drive and talk – geddit?).

Launching today, the Klat 7 will ship with 90 days Dial2Do Pro bundled, enabling users to text, email and much, much more, while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. This is a first in the installed car-kit market, and so we’re very excited to be working with Enustech to help bring value-add for the busy driver to this segment of the market.

More details at the newly launched site here. Press release is here. Remember, the Dial2Do team is out in force at CES, so if you fancy a chat, please stop by our booth in the Safe Driving Zone.

One button to rule them all : BlueTrek Concerto and the Dial2Do Hands-free assistant

The Dial2Do Team are out in force at CES this week. Our shiny new stand is in place in the Distracted Driving Zone, and we have people to meet and announcements to announce!

First announcement out of the blocks was our partnership with one of the world’s premium Bluetooth Headset manufacturers: BlueTrek. Known for being something of an innovator in the headset space, BlueTrek and Dial2Do have teamed up to launch a new headset called the Concerto, which will come bundled with the Hands-free Assistant service from Dial2Do. This means consumers can now email and text, hands-free, right out of the box.

And speaking of box – here’s how it looks “in situ”:

We’re delighted to be working with BlueTrek, and are very excited about the potential for the HandsFree Assistant service to address a real need for busy drivers everywhere.
