Logitech Introduces New Mobile Speakerphone With Enterprise-Quality Audio and Hands-Free Flexibility
Logitech Mobile Speakerphone P710e Transforms Any Location into an Instant Conference Room
NEWARK, Calif. — Oct. 21, 2013 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today introduced the Logitech® Mobile Speakerphone P710e, a compact speakerphone designed for an individual or small group to easily set up an instant conference room virtually anywhere – in the office, at home, or on the go – connecting on their PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.
With hands-free, enterprise-quality audio, USB and Bluetooth® connectivity, NFC (Near Field Communication) pairing, and up to 15 hours of battery life, the Logitech Mobile Speakerphone enables users to experience professional-quality, natural-sounding conversations throughout even the longest workday.
The speakerphone’s sliding top section reveals an integrated stand that holds a mobile phone or tablet at the optimal angle for hands-free video calls. Or, during audio-only calls, the user can place a tablet in the integrated stand, pair the tablet with a compact Bluetooth keyboard, and take notes during the call, enjoying the benefits of a highly streamlined workspace for both productivity and communication.
Built for the mobile professional, with the human-centric design and user-friendly features Logitech is known for, the Logitech Mobile Speakerphone features wideband audio and advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology that enables precise tuning for both the omni-directional mic and speaker so conversations are more life-like.
The Logitech P710e is the first mobile speakerphone to offer NFC, making it easy to pair, connect and disconnect NFC-enabled mobile devices to the speakerphone by simply touching them together. It can pair with up to eight Bluetooth devices, and connect to two Bluetooth mobile devices at the same time. Its USB plug-and-play connectivity makes it simple to connect to PC and Mac computers.
“We designed the Logitech Mobile Speakerphone P710e for the increasing number of people who work outside the traditional office,” said Eric Kintz, senior vice president and general manager of Logitech for Business. “Now, professionals on the go or in small-group meetings can take advantage of a portable speakerphone with high-quality voice and ample battery life, making it simple to host conference or video calls from anywhere, at any time, on just about any device. By incorporating an integrated mobile-device stand into the product as well as Bluetooth and NFC capabilities, Logitech is continuing to help optimize the communication experience on mobile devices.”
Ensuring an integrated experience with most business-grade UC platforms, the Logitech Mobile Speakerphone P710e is Optimized for Microsoft® Lync™, Cisco® compatible and Skype™ certified. It can also be used with consumer applications such as Facetime, or for a regular phone call.
The product comes with a carrying case.
The Lithium-Ion battery delivers 15 hours of talk time between charges, based on speech played in the range of 63dB-67dB for 50 percent of the talk time.
