New Device Provides Top Quality Sound for iPhone™ and Bluetooth® Phone Calls; Users Speed Dial "Top 3" Numbers -- No Need to Remove Phone from Pocket or Purse

Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple™ computing accessories for the mobile consumer, today introduced a hands-free car kit that clips to the car visor and offers crystal-clear speaker sound and one-touch speed dialing of three favorite numbers, without removing phones from pocket or purse.  Since many states already have enacted strict laws about driving and talking on mobile phones, the new hands-free support helps users drive and talk not only conveniently and safely - but also legally.

Kensington research shows that 95% of people call the same three numbers while driving, so this "favorite three" feature should greatly simplify their ability to more securely keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues while on the road.  The hands-free speaker device also pairs with up to 3 different Bluetooth phones, allowing 3 different users to speed dial their top 3 favorite numbers switching between phones in only a few seconds with just the push of a button.

Kensington's incorporation of a high end, patented noise cancelling technology has resulted in a product which has such excellent sound that early users have defined it as being similar to a high quality headset, yet with all the simplicity of a one touch speaker device that clips to the car visor.  Many people dislike carrying headsets which can be uncomfortable and distracting, can easily get misplaced, and which lack the convenience of the "favorite three" speed dialing capability. A swappable battery provides approximately 10 hours of talk time.

"The Kensington processes are so simple that people's attention can stay focused on driving just as their eyes can stay glued to the road," said Orlantha Boeker, Regional Product Marketing Manager, Kensington. "And while they offer ultimate convenience, even more importantly, they offer crystal-clear sound quality.  People try them and say they sound more like a headset than a speaker phone, which is due to the high end noise cancelling technology. So people can have great conversations along with a safer journey."

Key Features of the Kensington Hands-Free Visor Car Kit for iPhone and Bluetooth® Phones Includes:

One Touch for Top Three - Program three frequently dialed numbers to call your favorite people with a single touch while driving.

Multi-Driver Friendly - Press the user swap button and the car kit will automatically disconnect from your phone to link to a second or third driver's programmed phone - each with their own three speed dial presets, for up to nine numbers in one vehicle.

Clear Conversation - The high-quality speaker, microphone, and patented noise canceling technology offer flawless voice transmission for all communications needed while driving.

Easy and Convenient Access - Keep within reach at all times by clipping the Hands-Free Visor Car Kit to your vehicle's sun visor.

Talk for Hours - The Hands-Free Visor Car Kit includes two swappable, rechargeable battery packs for approximately 10 hours of talk time each to never worry about running out of power.
