Motorola’s flurry of product announcements today weren’t just limited to the new smartphones and Moto 360 smartwatch, the company also unveiled the new Moto Hint and Power Pack Micro accessories.
Moto Hint is the same accessory, which was earlier teased by the company in the launch event invite. According to Motorola, Moto Hint is a wireless earbud, which allows you to control your phone without bringing it out of your pocket. Once paired, it acts as an extended microphone and speaker for your phone. So, you put in your ear and start saying voice commands.
“Moto Hint is a discreet wireless earbud designed to look good and feel great. It gives you complete control of your phone and allows you to access everything you need by just using your voice,” noted Motorola in a blog post.
The company states Moto Hint is compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, however we believe that it will work best with Moto X (201 & 2014) as the phones offer the best voice control for any smartphone available in the market.
It has been priced at a hefty $149.99 and will go on sale later this fall in the US. It is expected to land in other markets around the year-end.
Coming to Power Pack Micro, which is a fancy power bank for your phone. In addition to extra battery juice that it carries, the Power Bank Micro also comes with Motorola Keylink, a phone and key finder which helps locate your phone or keys when they’ve been misplaced.
Set to be available in multiple colour options, it will go on sale later today on motorola.com in the US for $39.99.
It is priced too much… but none the less it is indeed very innovative!
