The last cool gadget that Motorola announced came as a bit of a shock. Somehow they were able to keep this intriguing new device completely "off the grid" of the rumor-mill. It's called the Moto Hint, and it is quite simply a fancy new Bluetooth Earbud/Earpiece.
The Moto Hint is obviously meant to help make "hands-free" a bit more popular by making it less dorky/lame looking. We must admit, that this is actually a pretty good idea. With most states in the US quickly passing hands-free laws in regards to using devices while driving, changing the dynamic a bit could prove a smart idea. It definitely makes for a safer experience. This will be especially handy for folks with older cars that do not have Bluetooth capabilities.
Interestingly, this device has some other cool features as well. Here is what we know about the Moto Hint,
- It sits in your ear and gives you voice activation
- You can interact with Google Now to answer and make calls
- You can receive navigation instruction without having to pull your phone out of your pocket
- Battery life will supposedly last for 10 hours
Here's a link to Moto's landing page on the device: Moto Hint
