The DriveBlue handsfree car kit reviewed here before will be available in the United States through AT&T Wireless stores. The operator has entered into an agreement to distribute the Parrot DriveBlue in its stores and through its affiliates. AT&T Wireless owns approximately 1,200 stores in the US and has 21.5 million subscribers.
The agreement was negotiated by Parrot USA and DCOMM, the Seattle based distributor of Parrot.
Henri Seydoux, Parrot's Chairman and CEO, said: " The selection of the DriveBlue by AT&T Wireless is an endorsement of Parrot car kit products in the US. We also see it as the beginning of a long-term relationship with AT&T Wireless, which always excels in providing to their customers quality and easy-to-use products".
Parrot DriveBlue was the first installation-free Bluetooth car kit on the market and it's one of the most advanced available. Using it, the cellular phone may be left in the pocket or the bag, and the driver has a transparent interface which increases his safety and comfort and facilitates his ability to communicate while keeping his/her eyes on the road. Users can initiate or answer a mobile call with voice commands, and the phonebook is synchronised between the device and the mobile phone.
Advanced features are available according to the phone model: dual call, caller ID, auto-answer, private mode and one-touch redialing and Wordspotting.
