NEW: The ORB Bluetooth headset redefines the ear-ring: From headset to ring.

Bluetooth headsets have come a long way in the style stakes since they are usually designed to mould to the shape of the ear. Even though they were specially designed, they still can be a little bit awkward to carry in a pocket. The innovative Bluetooth headset called Orb solves this problem by transforming from a wireless earpiece into a ring that can be worn on your finger.

The Orb transforms from a ring with a simple twist to become a Bluetooth headset capable of hands-free calling. Incorporating NXT technology the Orb provides high quality bone conduction audio without the discomfort of placing a device inside the ear. A Deluxe edition also features a Flexible Organic Light Emitting Device (FOLED) screen to display caller ID, calendar reminders and voice-to-text information for communication without taking the ring off the finger.

Developed in partnership between Hybra Advance Technology Inc. and AbsolutelyNew Inc. For those who like their Bluetooth headsets with extra bling will be able to opt for a limited edition designer model featuring decorative gemstones. All units will offer a class 2 Bluetooth range of 30 feet.

The base model Orb is scheduled to launch in January 2010 carrying a suggested retail price of USD$129, while the Deluxe edition is due in April 2010 with a price of USD$175. The Limited edition designer models are also due in April 2010 with their price based on the value of the gemstones incorporated into the device.
