The BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone is RIM's latest accessory of note, allowing you to take advantage of Bluetooth and go hands-free in your car. We first caught wind of it back at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and got a good walk-through of it in April at CTIA Wireless. Research in Motion has put a lot of thought into the Visor Mount's design and functionality - you can tell this is one of those accessories they want every BlackBerry owner to buy (assuming your vehicle isn't pre-equipped with Bluetooth). They'll have some competition though from existing best-selling speakerphones including the Jabra SP700 and the Blueant Supertooth 3.

We'll be getting the BlackBerry Visor Mount in stock at ShopCrackBerry.com soon and will bring you the full review then. In the meantime, I just couldn't wait to post Part I of this reality review up. DEFINITELY CHECK IT OUT. I had some fun on this one. Let me know what you think in the comments! :-)

This would be very useful, definitely thinking about picking one up.

1 UP for first comment!

TBolt

nice review? really? are you kidding? lol.

thezman

What are the odds that 2 chicks would be just randomly driving down the road and stop for Kev, let him in the car, take him to eat, and try his device (insert that's what she said)?

I call STAGED! :P

Ha ha ha .. just messing with ya Kevin. Look forward to part deuce.

krkeegan

Is it just me or could this staged scene be the start of a porn movie?

toupet

Cant w8 to see these in bikinis at the beach !!! & for sure some more about the Visor Mount :P

chuckh0308

I think what we ALL really want to know is did you get any? LOL! J/K, nice work!

Principal Skinner

I hope my daughters would never stop for a random guy with a video camera and blue tooth device in hand ...I hope this was staged.

The first thing I thought when I saw the device is that it is too big. Also, if you have to charge it with the car charger, you'll have a cord in front of your windshield.

ekimnal

.... obviously you would unclip it before plugging it in to charge it...

cenloe

Reminded me of BangBus when the chicks showed up. Staged for sure, what chick unbuckles herself when stopping for some random dude? Dont get me wrong, it was a good video, very effective and entertaining at the same time.

crackberrytraitor

Should totally have a bangbus crackberry edition.

irie

I was thinking the same thing. That was way too easy.. Either Kevin is the man or those chicks aren't the brightest.. LMAO

CMEC

That's a messed up thing to say considering that's his girl. The all white Jay-Z colorwared 8320 was Kevin's old berry.

cenloe

Lol, hey I didnt say anything negative about his girl. I just stated that the scene resembled one from BangBus. Im sure his girl is as sweet as could be.
Edit: Nevermind, I realize my error.

crackberrytraitor

Kev, if those chicks are willing to invite a random guy to go to the beach with them, that means they totally want some. Part 2 better be x-rated.

irie

About to go outside with my storm and try to pick up some chicks and see where it takes me. I wish I had skills like Kevin. lol

TimeOff

Of course, if I read the "About Us" section beforehand, I would have realized you're from Manitoba...

moosc

i believe i read last week he was on vacation in miami.

majikmonkie

That's totally Hwy 59 North up to Grand Beach. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Beach_(Manitoba)) It's actually a 3km long beach.

And what a nice day it was in Winnipeg! Had to turn on my A/C finally!

collin16

give them my email for me :) maybe we can PIN?

The Hern

Those girls weren't random! Ha ha ha but still funny!

mjbesen310

Kevins a pimp lol I cant even get girls to stop like that for me lol

Ev0lv3

haha, nice, didn't know Kevin was from winnipeg either!!

Looks like they went to the A&W on keewatin, then went down highway 59 on their way to Grand Beach.

Product looks pretty cool too. :p

matrix2004

What city is that Kevin? I'm in Chicago and i tried that. The only one that stopped for me was a garbage truck then i ran away. LOL.

hudss

that's the first time Kevin got a reaction from a girl saying "that it was big"

Doug Perkins

When will this be available in South America. For those of us who travel back and forth.

JDWallace

I think Kevin should do this with all the reviews. Great idea and a change from how things are usually reviewed. PLUS, staged or not and his girl or not, hot chicks + BB = AWESOME! lmao! And to all you who commented on Bangbus..... BUSTED! We all know what you do after searching CB.com, lmao!

bigandy603

I once saw a similar video online, where the guy with the camera goes off with the cute girls. I can't say what happens next because there could be kids looking... but you get the idea :) j/k

Very Nice

CeoStatus0

Kind of goofy, but whatever it takes to get people interested...

Nice work Kevin.

vx1

I thought it was totally entertaining lol had tears in my eyes laughing :)

not a bad Idea I could use something like that

Lawcheehung

something makes me think this will be more than just a review...

fraunhofer777

When I come to manitoba to see my lady friend, kevin you better friggin BBM me so we can hit up the biatches. 4 realz. You da pimp.

Ok, incoherent speech aside. You totally had me going dude. Kudos to your, bluetooth in hand, crackberry skillz.

dotcom32

1 minute of Blackberry info? 5 minutes of youtube? I still don't know anything about the bluetooth device

joliva

Hey Kevin, that vid was like a bad beginning to an adult flick! lol Good luck in part 2!

NinjaRAT

Was that "Tin Tin" playing at 2:50? Classic!

BBA

Dude, Kevin, is THAT how you pick up chicks? Nice!
Well... it wouldn't work on german chicks here haha.

Stand on the street corner, wave my video cam and BT remote handsfree headset and I got all action I can handle, for the rest of my LIFE! Which of course, with my luck, the first person that stops, is an ax murder, looking for a guy with a video cam and a BT remote handsfree headset!

That or I get jumped by a bunch of high school girls in a Mini Copper, looking to get their thug on, they jack my Vcam and BT remote handsfree headset, curb check me into a coma, and have the video of the whole thing up on YouTube before I get to the ER!!!

Thanks Kevin! You set me UP!!!!!!

SeattleReign

I can't believe I just wasted 5 minutes of my life watching that. The unit looks nice but it would have been good to hear it in action instead of a bunch of staged video footage that went nowhere.

jbjtkbw00#AC

....and no one mentions the bad taste in music. 'Vogue-ing' to the beach? Well, they are females, so it's appropriate and oh so 80's.

JHatz

if that wasnt staged then I need to know where you were because those girls just let you into their car after saying 2 sentences.

mikehage

i have one of these to test out for my company and so far im loving it

ArykMeyer

this was the biggest waste of 6 minutes in my life...

isnt the point of showing a video about reviewing a product to actually demonstrate how it works? not some guy supposedly getting picked up by some girls and going to the beach with them? cause that CLEARLY wasnt staged...

Mike-9000

Looks like a good peice of kit. Judging by the noises it makes, it sounds like Jabra had a hand in its development - sounds just like the SP700!

Matt_25

When you stopped those girls, LOL.

It looked EXACTLY like a Naughty America scene the way you sounded dude, hahahaha

ClintRo

hahahaha... ok this is funny... Kevin goes on and adventure.... I hope he gets home safe...

TBolt

soooooo...we could have basically skipped everything in part I up until the pairing of the device. I hope Part II is shorter.

NewYorkChic

Kev on your first soft porn movie...lol...kidding mang, lookn forward to watching part 2!!!

cad871

My new Accord has an mp3 jack. When I plug my Storm in to it, (works great for playing music) and then make a call, can do speakerphone. The person on the other end comes through my stereo and like I said, i am on speakerphone. How is using Bluetooth any different?

mallinj

How does this compare to the Motorola Rockr T505? I have it and it works great. Side buttons on it will allow you to skip tracks, etc.

Wolfroid

PART II
ShAAAAAmmmOOOooooooo
NIce work......mixing pleasure an work!!!
;))))))

House seller

I got mine about 6 months ago, and couldn't be happier with it! I've also gotten drivesafe.ly.com for txts and emails, and that automatically runs thru it, so I'm completely hands free. Sound quality is excellent, don't buy something cheaper and not be able to hear it..

jcj1

This is a great bluetooth device as have been using it for months. very easy to setup and use as shown in video

rupam95

Kevin: "it's big, bigger than you want?" lol
