Aliph Jawbone Prime Bluetooth Headset

More Premium Bluetooth Headsets discussed several new or upcoming premium Bluetooth headsets, including the Aliph Jawbone Prime.

Interestingly, both a Windows Mobile site, WmExperts, and a BlackBerry site, CrackBerry, have posted detailed reviews of the Jawbone Prime. See Review: Jawbone Prime and Review: Aliph Jawbone PRIME Bluetooth Headset.

The reviews reach similar conclusions. The Jawbone Prime is excellent, but pricey (can you say $129.95).

The Jawbone Prime certainly has the latest technology, including noise-cancellation and Multipoint. My concerns were different, as I stated in More Premium Bluetooth Headsets: “I had the first Jawbone. It really didn’t fit comfortably. Hopefully the third-generation Jawbone Prime has solved this problem. I’d also like to see if the connector is standard or proprietary. I suspect the latter, which would be unfortunate as it is yet another connector/charger to load into by device bag.”

The CrackBerry review in “Finding the Perfect Fit” addresses the fit issue, though I still would have to try the fit for myself. Maybe I missed it, but I did not see mention in either review of the type of connector. However, based on the last picture in the WmExperts review, the connector still appears to be proprietary. 

I may take a look at this bad boy myself, if only for the colors. Can you see me in “red Frankly SCARLET”?
