Banish the Beige


LONDON, November 20 --- Funky Phone Accessories From Finland Offer Design and Performance

We've all gone wireless now. Our waffles come with Wi-Fi and we can use broadband in the bedroom as well as the boardroom. But haven't we lost just a little bit of style in the process? Aren't there just a few too many grey or beige gadgets in our lives? Well, not any more. Finnish company, Iqua, has just injected some much-needed fashion savvy back into the wireless world. Its Bluetooth headsets have taken the pick of that famous Scandi-style, combined it with the best technology, and made it available to the UK's mobile population in a neat and nifty package.

With its chic, minimalist styling, the CPW-603 Bluetooth wireless headset is the perfect choice for the fashion-conscious, hands-free mobile phone user. Available in a choice of three colours - pearl white, charcoal and pink - this lightweight headset fits comfortably in either ear, gives crystal-clear sound whether you are in the car or on the street, and can be used with any brand of Bluetooth-enabled phone.

There's no fiddling about with complicated instructions either: one button allows you to switch a call between phone and headset, redial or end the call. And you can use voice activated dialling, great for when you're negotiating a roundabout or want to keep your phone out of public view. For the more technical among us, this headset also supports VoIP calls over the internet when used with your PC.

The good news is that its haute couture looks are available at high street prices. The CPW-603 costs GBP29.99 exclusively from Carphone Warehouse. It is available as a single product, but if you simply have to have co-ordinated accessories, get yourself the iconic LG Chocolate phone, also available in the same three stylish colours.

For those who have a more active outlook, the Iqua Freedom BHS-701 stereo headset (GBP45 rrp) is the perfect choice. This lightweight piece of kit makes it easy to make phone calls and, because it offers superior sound quality, it's great for listening to music too - all without wires.

Available in stylish silver or trendy orange, this stereo headset brings mobility to life with its on-the-go, over-the-ears design - perfect for the young and young-at-heart.

With people spending more time on the road, safety has to be a number one concern. Iqua miniUFO (GBP40 rrp) is a Bluetooth device developed to promote safer driving with superior audio quality and complete handsfree functionality. It is easy to use with four simple operation buttons. Using the mounting accessories included with the product, the miniUFO can be easily mounted on the sun visor or dash-board of your car.

Iqua BHS-701 and Iqua miniUFO are available from selected retail outlets and Vodafone online store:
