As far as I am concerned RIM have always made great Bluetooth headsets, whether in ear or car speakers. I myself use the BlackBerry Visor Mount in my car and as well as it being awesome, the battery lasts for such a long time. But that'e enough about me. MacBerry.com has published some images of what they say are the next range of Bluetooth accessories from Research in Motion. Clearly RIM have not confirmed these as far as I am aware so take them with a pinch of salt, but you have to admit they do look pretty sweet.

With BlackBerry 10 on the horizon who knows what additional media features will be embedded into the OS, so a new range of Bluetooth hardware may just be what we need. Fingers crossed the images are true. The Universal Bluetooth Headset HS250 looks great in the range of colours and as for the BlackBerry Personal Speaker - well, I just have to get me one of those. If they are indeed true of course. Fingers crossed.

The VM-605 is a great headset, albeit it's blatantly Jabra internals ;)

If it had NFC it would have been killer. Mines still going 4 years or so on.

"Power Off"

Yeah, this one confused me. It clearly is the same as Jabra SP700 (we have both at work).

Yet, I have first hand RIM employee reports that the VM-605 was a "significant" development project internally at RIM...

I guess the mechanical design is unique, but everything else sure does seem to be SP700.

If these are true then could they also be an indication to what colors the new BB10 phones will be available in?

that would be awesome to have that variety of colours... except they are missing red :)

I would buy that Bluetooth earpiece if mine ever broke (its a Motorola, from before they joined Google's camp). But I hope they keep the BB 10 phones to Black and White, maybe one other color if need be. Anything more than that looks cheesy to me; hurts the professionalism of the Blackberry brand.

Proudly a member of TeamBlackberry, and in it for the long haul.

Those are sweet bluetooth accessories. I have yet to start using my plantronics p570 again. Been going about the wired headset route due to cycling and the fact that the bluetooth thing won't fit under my helmet correctly. I just don't need to take the risk of it falling off while hitting a bump or two on the road.

I might consider getting a bluetooth accessory if it can stand up to my usage habits.

They look like the Nokia ones that were just announced. I like the different colours though I don't use a single bluetooth headset. I use the Sony MX600. I will be looking for a new one when the phones start running Version 4 and hope RIM comes out with a stereo one.

Hopefully the personally speaker is an actually RIM product and we see it in the near future!!! I would buy one right away, be great for the kitchen, garage, work etc...

Its a great idea to be able to "wear" the speaker and take it every where like that. Pretty cool.

k-dogg

That'll be cool too,,usefully for sure. I would have to hear the speaker quaility first, I'm very picky with speakers lol. Still there's good potential in this product. Now release it!!!!
