I went ahead and created a quick mock up, according to the way it is presented in the drawings, with two existing images.



It would make sense for the wirless headset to be plugged in that way, since it seems to have the same magnetic plug-in at the bottom like the magnetic chargers on lap tops have. What do you guys think?

I just hope that it doesn't have the same kind of charger that my iPod has, where I have to plug it into my computer's USB port to charge it. After spending all that money on the phone, I wouldn't be able to afford a wall charger if it cost extra! Plus, my computer would keep me up all night with sounds and such!

Nice job.

Hopefully the extended dock, if it exists, is optional. If I don't want Apple's BT headset, I wouldn't want a bigger dock with a useless hole. Voilates my feng shui. :p

:laugh2: @ the fengshui part.

I'm thinking, if it is indeed put into production by Apple, that it may come out with the wireless headset, maybe even bumbping up the price a bit.

I'd completely forgotten about the Apple blutooth headset... and I was just about to buy a BT headset too. Lucky I waited, since I'm sure the Apple version will be superior to anything I would have found.

Could be. Then again, if it stays in your ear as well as the standard Apple earbuds (and that earpiece does look similar, doesn't it?) then you may want to continue your search.

Personally, I'm diggin' the Jawbone. And, oh gee, it's available through Cingular (now AT&T) stores. I smell one stop shopping! :cool:

Thanks for the heads up on the Jawbone. I am in the market for a new bluetooth headset. I figured I would get the Apple one when I get the iPhone. I am going to do a little more research, but it is very possible that I will now end up with a Jawbone. Thanks again ;).

Not at all. I think forums like this are where I got wind of half the cool gizmos & software I like. If calls are as clear as the Jawbone promo suggests, I'd take it over a smaller form factor any day and twice on Sundays (not that it's that big).

Cheers,

The Jawbone looks awsome! The only thing I am wondering is Houw big is it? I mean it has the rap aroung ear thing so that will take care of some of the wait. But could I have it on all day? So does anyone know how it works? I am a sound engineer and it would be perfect for me while i am mixing a show. I cant deside if it is doing a noise reverse cancelation or just focusing the mic more toweird the jaw bone? Well maybe a little of both and that is why it is called the Jawbone. So how big is it?

As I understand it, outgoing sound (your voice) is detected via a vibration sensor rather than a microphone. The mics cancel ambient noise to clarify incoming sound (the caller).

As to the size, have you visited the site? In addition to the spash screen showing a closeup of a model wearing one, there are dozens of photos of the thing. Plus, you can always call up an AT&T store and see if they have one in stock.
