We're accustomed to seeing various apps and app stores
phones, but this is something new: Bluetrek recently launched an online app
store for its Bluetrek Crescendo Bluetooth
headset. The Talk2Me
App Store lets users upload applications and works to enhance the usage
experience of the headset.
One of the applications available today is called Personal
Handsfree Assistant, a service from Dial2Do that will read your emails and lets
you reply to and send emails and text messages using your voice. Another
offering, Bing411 voice search, provides easy access to stock quotes, sports
scores, flight schedules, news, weather, and local traffic information from the
The app store also provides language downloads that will
change the voice command and voice prompt languages on the headset. Currently,
English and French language packs are available, but German, Spanish, and
Italian are coming soon.
Through the app store, users can also upload a firmware
version with specially tuned audio for the mobile platform (Nokia, Blackberry,
iPhone, or Windows Mobile) he or she is using.
