Motorola Offers Skype Bluetooth Headset at RadioShack

Motorola announced the first Skype-certified Bluetooth headset solution for the U.S. market. Motorola H500 Bluetooth Headset and PC850 PC Adapter, which will be offered at 3,500 RadioShack stores nationwide, includes 30 free SkypeOut minutes so users can make Skype calls to mobile and landline phones without additional charges. To experience wireless communications, users plug in the Motorola PC850 PC Adapter to equip traditional laptops and PCs with Bluetooth technology, load the required software onto the PC and follow a simple, step- by-step procedure to establish the cordless connection between the PC and Motorola H500 headset.

The Motorola H500 offers approximately eight hours of talk time and a range of about 30 feet. Skype users can also have calls automatically forwarded to their compatible Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones when away from the PC and use the Motorola H500 Headset to wirelessly conduct cord-free conversations on their mobile phone.

The Skype Motorola Kit is priced at $99.
