Accessory: Nokia Wireless Plug-in Handsfree HF-6W

June 16, 2006 in Nokia Phone Accessories

Two days ago I highlighted the Nokia Advanced Car Kit. Now of course, this is just a little too extreme for some people (namely, you). It’s expensive, it’s annoying, and the only discount you really get is 33 bucks off installation.

I think more people would prefer the Nokia Wireless Plug-in Handsfree HF-6W device. This cool little doodad that kinda looks like an oversized car air freshener, plugs into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter/DC socket and allows you to talk without holding your Nokia cell phone to your mouth or wearing one of those ridiculous earpieces. (it uses Bluetooth to connect to your phone wirelessly)

Read more about the HF-6W in the full entry.

The HF-6W has built-in “speech tracking” technology that uses 4 microphones to lock on and isolate a person’s voice. That’s Nokia speak for “filters background noise” but it still seems like an interesting feature.

This little Wireless Plug-in device also lets you charge your compatible Nokia phone with its retractable power cable. No word on whether it works with newer Nseries phones that use the smaller power plugs.

Although it uses Bluetooth to transmit information, it supports the older 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 Bluetooth specifications. Also, note that calls made through the HS-6W device can’t be routed through your stereo – you’ll need to get the Nokia Advanced Car Kit for that.

Right now, it doesn’t seem like there are any places that have any of these devices in stock. While I don’t have the retail price, the HS-6W sells for about ~$130 US dollars.

Does it work? Who knows. Someone send me one and I’ll gladly review it.
