Wireless devices for iPod are suddenly all the rage. Last week at Macworld Belkin was showing off its new sports command for iPod set up and now everyone is talking about MyBlu a new system that connects your iPod to your mobile phone wirelessly via Bluetooth.
When you're using MyBlu and a call comes in, your iPod music pauses and the caller's details are displayed on your iPod (like caller ID) and you can accept or reject the call with the buttons on myBlu. When you are done with the call, iPod music is resumed. Users can also choose from a list of the nine most recent or dialed numbers off the iPod with the clickwheel and start a new call. Though the Mavizen company admits some users have been experiencing caller ID issues in Asia and that other users have had trouble displaying non-English characters, on the iPod display, Mavizen says it's working on the bugs. So do we still need to drop $599 for an iPhone?
