Griffin launches iPhone accessories

Griffin has announced three new products for iPod and iPhone users at the annual Macworld conference in San Francisco on Tuesday.

SmartTalk Bluetooth, Navigate and PowerBlock Reserve are all due to be available in the UK later in the year and promise to offer users handsfree calling, extra power on the go, as well as radio for those who can't be without.

The rather uninspiring SmartTalk Bluetooth headset uses STEP Labs’ unique STEPVoice technology to promise to "eliminate external noise by comparing sound wave shapes and filtering out wind and background sound".

The Griffin Navigate, which has nothing to do with navigation, is actually a remote control that allows you to navigate around your iPod or iPhone. The device features a built-in FM radio receiver while the iFM application will give you access to FM radio with features that include display details of the current song, artist and album you are listening to and a ‘purchase now’ function that allows you to instantly buy any track that you hear and enjoy.

Finally, realising that the iPhone doesn't have the best battery life in the business the Griffin PowerBlock Reserve provides a backup battery charger and AC charger in one for iPhone and iPod users. Battery pack gives your iPhone up to 2 hours additional talk time say Griffin.
