Newton Peripherals Launches Ultra-Thin Headset

Newton Peripherals introduced what it is calling the world’s first ultra-thin integrated Bluetooth headset for notebooks. The new MoGo Talk headset stores and charges inside a laptop’s express card slot. In doing so, the headset offers consumers the convenience of an always charged headset for Skype, VoIP calls, and mobile telephone calls.

“We looked at all the Bluetooth headsets on the market, from boutique manufacturers all the way up to Jawbone and Plantronics, and found that even with their great audio quality and noise suppression, consumers are challenged to charge and store their Bluetooth headsets,” said Stuart Nixdorff, CEO of Newton Peripherals. “All Bluetooth headsets on the market today are inconvenient to use; nobody wants to take a call only to find a dead headset; and nobody wants to carry a pocket full of cables, chargers that accompany a bulky headset. What good is a headset if it’s not charged or feels uncomfortable in your pocket?”

MoGo Talk uses a different design than most Bluetooth headsets. Instead of an earbud / earloop combination, the MoGo Talk uses a flexible, thin rubber eartip that conforms to your ear and blocks out noise.

This headset is designed with OEM computer manufacturers in mind as distribution partners. The MoGo Talk joins Newton Peripherals’ line off ultra-thin peripherals including the MoGo Mouse. The MoGo Mouse is a 5 mm thin Bluetooth mouse that also stores and charges inside a laptop. Additionally, Newton Peripherals plans to release integrated mobile phone versions of the MoGo Talk that will piggyback on the back of a phone and can charge with it in the coming weeks.

The MoGo Talk is available today at for $99.99.
