BlueAnt has been making quality Bluetooth accessories for years. They just announced a new Bluetooth speakerphone for the new year along with a new application powered by Vlingo. The new Bluetooth speakerphone is intended for the value minded consumer and is called the S3 speakerphone. It include premium features like voice answer and auto reconnect which is nice in a speakerphone with a $79.99 retail price.
The new Vlingo integration is also interesting and will start coming with BlueAnt products in this quarter of 2011. Vlingo has supposedly optimized their application for BlueAnt products though I am not quite sure how it will differ from just downloading the current Vlingo app. The only advantage I can see is if BlueAnt ships their version of Vlingo for free to BlueAnt customers instead of the $19.99 price tag Vlingo currently has. Should be interesting to see how this all develops and it is definitely a big win for Vlingo.
