New BlackBerry device 'keeps your eyes on the road'

11 June 2009 — 2:00 PM

The BlackBerry Storm is just one phone that is compatible.

Consumers who have recently recycled mobile phones to pay for a new BlackBerry have been given a new hands-free option.

Research In Motion (RIM), the company behind the line of multimedia smartphones, has announced the launch of an in-car solution that allows users to chat while driving.

The BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone attaches to the interior of the auto and can be hooked up to stream calls from the handset itself through the vehicle's stereo system, as well as offer verbal caller IDs.

In addition, the gadget can play the music files stored on the RIM handset - which means more wireless audio options when on the road.

"This exciting new BlackBerry accessory helps drivers communicate, while keeping two hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road," the firm said in a statement.

Available for around £69.99, the BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone is compatible with models from the Curve, Pearl and Storm range.
