BlackBerry smartphones are getting cheaper and much more popular today than ever before. Even a lot of people from the younger, non-business-oriented generation of college goers today own these handhelds. As we are all aware, there are a whole lot of BlackBerry models to choose from today. No matter what your model, there are great accessories for your phone, which will help you make the most of it. Here, we bring you some of the best BlackBerry accessories.
- Jawbone ICON Bluetooth Headset
The Aliph Jawbone, which is already very popular, has a nice new BlackBerry Bluetooth headset, ICON, which is available right now. This is supposedly the smallest and most comfortable headset ever made.
This smart little accessory works with a software platform called MyTalk, which makes it easy for you to customize your headset. Giving great audio quality and noise cancellation feature, this one is a must-have BlackBerry accessory.
Design-wise, the ICON is a bit chubbier than its predecessors, but does look attractive, like all the previous models. Available in six jewellery- type designs, it looks pretty eye-catching. This headset comes with two sizes of earhooks to choose from, thereby giving you a perfectly snug, comfortable fit.
The button on the main face of the ICON is easy to use and performs multiple functions. What the headset lacks is a volume button, but since the device adjusts sound automatically, it does not really need a separate button for this. Overall audio quality is great, though might appear a bit grainy occasionally.
You have to install an AudioApp and a DialApp onto your headset. While the former lets you manipulate the voice coming from the headset, the latter lets you use voice features from your headset.
The USB cord lets you connect your headset to your PC and sync apps with it. Visit mytalk.jawbone.com for more info on this.
The Jawbone ICON is available at a very reasonable $99.99.
- Visor Mount Speakerphone
The VM-605 Visor Mount Speakerphone is again one of the best ever BlackBerry accessories. This slim little tool easily slides into your car’s visor and helps you make calls safely while driving.
You merely have to pair this with your BlackBerry smartphone via Bluetooth and charge it before you start using it while driving. There is an easily accessible button which you can use to turn the power on and off. This lets you operate it without taking your eyes off the road.
The VM-605 also lets you play music through your BlackBerry handheld. The sound quality of the music, though, is not very good. The audio quality of the calls, however, is excellent and that is what matters most.
The VM-605 can also find and broadcast your car’s FM radio and even give turn-by-turn directions if you have GPS installed in your device.
The big disadvantage of this BlackBerry accessory is its price, which is quite steep at $100. But considering its utility, it is indeed value for money.
- The BURY Comfort Cradle 8800
The BURY Comfort Cradle 8800 holds your BlackBerry smartphone in place while you drive, while also charging the handheld at the same time. This handy accessory is compatible with most Bluetooth handsfree car kits and also comes with an external antenna for better audio reception.
The biggest advantage of this accessory is that it gives you unlimited talk time, thanks to its inbuilt battery charging feature.
Because it securely straps your BlackBerry device to its mount, you can rest assured that it will stay safe while you are using the handsfree feature while driving.
The Comfort Cradle 8800 is priced at a comfortable $82.
There are many more BlackBerry accessories available in the market, but we have brought to the best ones at present.
