Starmobile just announced a new product offering today via their Facebook page, and it's not a smartphone nor a tablet. It's a pair of Bluetooth-powered earphones. If I remember it right this is the first time I have heard a stand alone earphones set being offered by one of the local tech players. And yeah Starmobile is the first guy on the block.
It's not just a typical headphones that we usually see on the market. This one, for some reason does not have its own name and just called Starmobile Bluetooth Earphones with NFC, is equipped with NFC support and is sweat proof which is very nice to hear. This sweat proof feature will definitely be helpful thing to those music lovers with more active lifestyles. Since it is Bluetooth and NFC equipped accessory, it should be compatible with most low and high end smartphones around.
There are also in-line mic and music/volume controls on the product which means that users will be able to blind control tracks being played on the phone like switching song, adjusting music volumes and even answering calls without the need to take out the phone from their pocket or bag.
