Apple changes Bluetooth Headset, drops Dual Dock [updated]
Without advance explanation, Apple has today changed the packaging and pack-ins for its iPhone Bluetooth Headset (iLounge rating: B). The company has dropped the previously included iPhone Dual Dock and changing its packaging to a plastic version reminiscent of the iPod shuffle’s, and smaller than the current iPod nano’s. From what we can gather, the Bluetooth Headset remains the same as the prior version, and continues to come with a Bluetooth Travel Cable. It is presently unknown whether the price of the revised version has dropped because of the missing part, or stayed the same; in Canada, where the previous version was never sold, the Apple Bluetooth Headset now sells for $129. If you were planning to buy one of Apple’s Bluetooth Headsets, you might want to hold off until the dust has cleared.
Update: The iPhone Bluetooth Headset (new packaging, minus the pack-ins) has appeared on Apple’s Online Store in the U.S. and is now priced at $99.
