Kudos to the MobileFun.co.uk chaps

Last week I posted a query from reader, Richard, who had a question about a bluetooth headset that would work with his Blackberry *and* his PC. The replies from readers were super — and Richard was delighted. But I’d like to highlight this one from Mo at MobileFun.


Essentially, you want to be looking out for Bluetooth Headsets that feature multipoint, will allow you to pair the headset with two devices at the same time. More details here: http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/blog/2008/08/what-is-multipoint/.

We have a selection here:

http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/cat/Multipoint-Bluetooth-Headsets.htm and TerenceEden’s recommendation is on there too.

Then next “feature” I would recommend looking out for is a USB charging cable in box, so keeping the headset charged up would be easy next to the PC/Laptop. Even better would be a headset that charges using the same socket as your BlackBerry. Most are MiniUSB, however the newer BlackBerrys (8900 curve and Storm) are MicroUSB.

If you have a newer BlackBerry, then this Jabra BT530 fits the bill: (Multi-Point and MicroUSB)

I hope this helps Richard.

This is the kind of really smart marketing that I like to see around the web. Yes Mo’s included links to his site, yes you can actually buy the products from Mo and, I’m sure he’ll make a bit of cash from that.

But the informed and personal nature of his response is, in my opinion, text-book marketing.

I’ve never bought anything from MobileFun before but after this helpful outreach message from Mo, I think I’ll give them a go.

Check them out.
