Research In Motion (RIM) is known first and foremost for its BlackBerry smartphones, but the Canadian company also manufactures and markets a wide variety of related software and accessories, including its BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) and BES Express for corporations and a number of cases and holsters for devices, along with audio-video peripherals, like Bluetooth headsets and media streaming gadgets.
RIM's latest BlackBerry accessory, the BlackBerry HS-700 Bluetooth Wireless Headset, is small and light, sleek and unobtrusive. It supports third party Bluetooth devices, not just BlackBerrys. And with its handsome "faux leather" front surface and matte-silver edges, the BlackBerry HS-700 is less of an accessory than a business tool. Instead of screaming, "Look at me" via blinking lights and shiny edges, the BlackBerry HS-700 is designed for subtlety and function.
In other words, if you're looking for a Bluetooth headset to compliment your Saturday-night-getup at the clubs or otherwise grab the eyeballs of passersby, think "Bluetooth Johnson", you'll want to look elsewhere.
Overall, I'm quite impressed with the BlackBerry HS-700 Bluetooth Wireless Headset, and despite a few minor complaints, it has become my go-to Bluetooth earpiece. Keep moving for specifics. First up: What RIM did right.
