Motorola Hint: IFA 2014's Winner

Six months ago in this post I asked for a discrete bluetooth headset with no hanging microphone that fitted in your ear to enable voice control. Specifically I asked Apple to deliver it as an add-on to further extend the power of Siri. So seeing Motorola deliver exactly such a device at IFA last week pleases me greatly.

The Hint will work with any Bluetooth phone, however paired with the new Motorola X it enables complete hands-free interaction delivering exactly the sort of experience that makes voice control such a potential game changer for smartphones.

It's a shame that the last Motorola X took so long to make it to New Zealand, but I can definitely see  X and Hint sized holes in my bank balance when they reach these shores.

Especially if the experience proves to be as good as the demo video promises.
