Parrot MINIKIT Smart: Making smartphones even smarter

By Gabrielle Pickard,

Parrot, a leading company of wireless peripherals for mobile phones, has announced its latest creative product to hit the market, the MINIKIT Smart. The MINIKIT Smart is the first Bluetooth hands-free, multifunctional kit with docking bay, which is compatible with all Smartphones and operating systems.

This innovative creation may prove to be particularly advantageous to men, who, being notoriously bad at multitasking will wholly benefit from the multifunctional capabilities of the MINIKIT Smart, which can simultaneously manage hands-free conversation and the navigation apps available on Smartphones. Although on the other hand men may argue that their ‘no sense of direction’ other half, will now not have an excuse about losing their way because they were chatting to their friends, as both telephone conversations and GPS guidance will go through the 2Watt speaker integrated in the MINIKIT Smart.

Smartphone’s batteries running out of life, particularly on long journeys, will also no longer be an excuse for ending up in Edinburgh instead of Ealing, Tewkesbury instead of Tunbridge Wells, and not answering the phone to the missus’ endless bombardment of ‘where the hell are you’ calls. As thanks to a USB cable being included with the MINIKIT Smart, this smart device can also recharge Smartphone’s batteries.

The MINIKIT Smart can be positioned easily and quickly with a suction cup that swivels from either portrait or landscape maximizing its visibility to the driver. The docking bay can be positioned with similar ease with a magnet.

Earlier this year Parrot launched the MINIKIT Slim, a portable Bluetooth hands-free car kit, which has been commended for its neatness, precision and capabilities. With today’s busy lifestyles, in which time is of the essence, multi-functioning gadgets are now becoming imperative as opposed to solely superfluous. In this sense, when Parrot’s MINIKIT Smart hits the market in November, it is likely to be met with the same, and if not more, admiration and praise as the MINIKIT Slim.
