Win-It Wednesday: H17txt with Motospeak Hands-Free Device

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 30, 2010 · 366 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

H17txt with Motospeak™

June is just about over now, but did you know that it was National Safe Driving Month? Motorola hit the road this month to educate consumers about driving safely with their Get Smarter safe driving campaign.

As part of this effort, Motorola has developed the H17txt with Motospeak Hands-Free Device. This nifty little piece of technology looks like a typical Bluetooth headset, with the added capability of reading text messages to the consumer in real time. You can even set up an autoresponse that will let the original sender know that you will respond to their message as soon as you reach your destination!

Motorola sent me an H17txt with Motospeak unit to test drive this feature. Unfortunately, the Motospeak technology is only compatible with Android and RIM devices at this time, so I was unable to take advantage of it with my iPhone. However, you can still use it as a Bluetooth headset, and this has quickly become a lifesaver for me. I'm hoping that the Motospeak application will be compatible soon, because I'd love to have that feature.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win an H17txt with Motospeak Hands-Free Device!

To enter, answer tell me whether you've ever been tempted to text and drive. Shh, we won't tell...

I don't have text on my phone, but maybe with this new gizmo, I just might add it so I will be hip & stylish, yet safe. I really want a bluetooth.

I've never been tempted to text and drive. #1, I don't usually text and #2 I wouldn't even if I did since I've got very precious cargo!

When phones were first a novelty I was tempted. Now everyone knows that until I get an earpiece I will not answer it. It is comical to watch my family dive for my purse like my phone is for them.
