Nextar GPS fans may want to take a look at a couple of Nextar Bluetooth units debuting at CES 2009 and slated to hit US shelves in the spring. The solar-powered units recharge when they are in standby mode, eliminating the need to be plugged in to a DC power unit.
The NXBT-001 has an LED signal display, supports A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) Bluetooth, and sport 10 hours of talk time and 250 hours standby time when fully charged.
The NXBT-002 is smaller, has an LED backlit display and caller ID, but only gets 6 hours of talk time and 150 hours standby time when fully charged.
When the Nextar NXBT-001 and Nextar NXBT-002 hit shelves in the spring, MSRP has been set at $59.99 and $69.99 respectively.
