Review: Sony Ericsson HCB-100


Both pretty and practical, Sony Ericsson's HCB-100 Bluetooth speakerphone is just as much at home on the desktop as it is in your car. We gave this sweet looking device a real-world test and were pleased with the results. Video included.

Easy to use, nice design, supports 5 phones

Average audio quality
