We first got word of this new BlackBerry accessory back in January at CES in Las Vegas. At that time, it did not have an official name, and was simply being called a "bluetooth visor". Apparently the RIM marketing folks have been hard at work, and have now come up with the name of... Wait for it... Wait for it... Wait for it... BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605. Whoa! Where's the creativity RIM, that was the best you could do???

All kidding aside with the name, this is will be nice addition to the BlackBerry lineup of accessories. It will feature hands-free calling, no installation of the device, up to 13 hours talk-time, and the best part yet, is supposed to be compatible with GPS mapping applications. No firm details on release date yet, however you can sign up on the BlackBerry website to be notified on its release, and keep your eyes posted to ShopCrackBerry.com for when it hits the store.

I got one last week and it's fucking *AMAZING*.
FM Transmitter + Hands free + A2DP + Aux Line In for MP3 Players

Best of all, it plugs into your cigarette lighter/12v port AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND it has a USB port on it for charging your sexberry on the go.

Another device I gotta get the 'ministry of finance' to approve aka my wife!!! Hope it wont require a mortgage to purchase!!

"But Hun. It is safer for me to talk to you while I am driving if I am not holding the phone. Those earpieces just don't work and I look silly." ;)

Let us know how you make out.

Ok, Im confused here.

Where exactly would the caller ID number be displayed? Or does it just read it outloud?

If it operates like the Motorola T505, it will call out the number as such:

"Call from 123-456-7890"

and then a ringer would go off.

I have the T505, and when it is connected to my BB and I get a call, both the T505 goes off as stated above and my BB rings too.

Great devices to have, so much better than an uncomfortable earpiece!
