LOS ANGELES, March 27, 2013 – bCODA, a manufacturer of wireless accessories and devices, announces the shipping of its CODA One Bluetooth hands-free handset and the JAK streaming USB products. Both products are currently available at NewEgg.com with more retailers being added; the CODA One has an MSRP of $99.99 and the JAK of $69.99.
The CODA One is a hands-free Bluetooth handset for smartphones. The slim and sleek Coda One can also double as a portable speaker for music from other Bluetooth-related audio devices. This dual-speaker device can be switched from handset mode like a standard phone or speaker mode for hands-free conversations.
Because of its Bluetooth-based capabilities, the CODA One can also be used for VoIP calls on tablets, notebooks and other products where traditional or built-in speakers aren’t enough. The CODA One delivers the wireless, hands-free flexibility of Bluetooth products, without additional bulk and weight.
The CODA One is Bluetooth V3.0/EDR compliant with acoustic quality, full duplex, wideband audio, as well as noise reduction and echo cancellation features. It can be paired with up to eight other Bluetooth devices and has a talk time of up to 20 hours.
The JAK multi-share, streaming USB is a portable content streaming device for Android-based smartphones and tablets. Wirelessly share content, such as music playlists, photos and videos onto a large screen television or projector, or even through a mobile entertainment system via the USB port.
Designed to look like a portable USB flash drive, JAK works with any USB 3.0-enabled host device and is backwards compatible with older USB versions. Connect the JAK to other electronic devices such as smart HDTVs, home or car stereo systems and computers for full HD (1080p) video and high-quality audio.
A simple plug-and-play interface, the app is available for free from the Google Play store. Create playlists for music and videos, sync the playlist to Jak and stream to a big-screen product. The JAK can be connected to as many as 20 other devices for continuous streaming with no loss in audio or video quality, and no need for extra cables or time to transfer files. The JAK only streams and contains data when connected, so there is no loss of data or worries of files and content being copied needlessly.
