BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone Reality Review - pt. 1

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! :-)

BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone Reality Review - pt. 1

57 Comments

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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!

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

yeah yeah hit me on my bLaCk burry,,,,,,,,,,
mah black burry burry
mah black burry burry
mah black burry burry

uhh uhh huhhh mah black burry burry

whAthCaa whAtchAa know jigga jigga

uhh yeah

oh sh*t you so nice burry, i wAnNa c U m on you blackk burry

uhh yeah hit me on mah black burry, mah black burry burry

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

not a bad Idea I could use something like that

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.

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

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

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!!!!!!

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.

....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.

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.

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...

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!

When you stopped those girls, LOL.

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

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

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?

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.

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..

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