Earlier this week Motorola took the wraps off two new smartphones and the Moto 360 smartwatch, but the new device that caught my interest the most is the Motorola Hint Bluetooth headset. This is the first headset that I’ve seen in a very long time that I’d actually consider wearing – in public. That’s because the Hint is small and much more inconspicuous than traditional Bluetooth headsets. But probably the most interesting feature is that this headset is completely handsfree. You don’t have to touch it to interact with it because it relies on your voice commands to control it. Just say “Ok Moto” proceeded by a command like “What’s the forecast for today?”, “Call mom”, etc. The Hint features a 150 foot roaming range and pass thru audio so you can still hear what is going on around you when it’s in your ear. It will automatically power on when you put it in your ear and will turn off when you remove it and put it in the included charging case. The Hint will be priced at $149.99 and will have an outer cover that will be available in a variety of colors and materials. Visit Motorola to sign up to receive a notification when the Hint becomes available.
