What do any of you know about the bluetooth headset/caller id device found on www.blackberrystuff.com 's home page? Is it worth purchasing?

I have not tried it but can't understand the need for caller ID on the headset. If you have it on your ear you can't see it and if you don't have it on your ear, you can see the caller id on the blackberry.

Dusty I couldnt agree more, its just another gizmo to charge you a few dollars more making you think it is a nice cool feature in there. To me it is totally useless.

Well that's not exactly what he is posting about? I don't think? ? They have a new bluetooth car kit/Desktop kit that has caller id on it. I don't think it's the actual head set or ear piece we wear.

I may be wrong, but i saw the same thing and i wonder if that is what he is refurring to?

Either way it's still like Dusty/KonTiki said. (but looks cool)

here's a link to it. http://www.blackberrystuff.com/BT-2000-catalogue.pdf

If I am driving the reason I use bluetooth is to not get distracted, if now I am going to be looking at caller ids and the like I am defeating the pourpose of the darn thing to begin with. I still think its a feature to justify a higher cost.
