ID8-Mobile today announced the MoGo Talk XD™ for iPhone 4, claiming to be the World’s thinnest and only high-performance Bluetooth headset + protective case system.

According to ID8-Mobile, one of the major challenges for bluetooth headset users is keeping their headset handy with their phone without constantly wearing it. Their solution is the MoGo Talk XD™ for iPhone 4, an integrated solution that provides an iPhone4 case which also allows for docking the included slim-profile (5mm thin) bluetooth headset.

Stuart Nixdorff, CEO and President of ID8-Mobile, had the following to say about the product:

The convenience, functionality and thin design of MoGo Talk XD make it a Smart accessory with unmatched significance. With MoGo Talk XD, the Bluetooth headset is always ready for use without adding unnecessary bulk to the iPhone 4. The iPhone was designed to be the thinnest Smartphone on the market, and users shouldn’t have to compromise that when they decide to add features that are supposed to enhance it, and cases that are meant to protect it. Technology is supposed to improve efficiency for the consumer, and too often it just becomes an added frustration. MoGo Talk XD optimizes Bluetooth technology to provide consumers with the most convenient and elegant Smartphone.

With so much attention to industrial design and aesthetics, we wondered whether user comfort was lost. Mr. Nixdorff indicated to us that comfortability hadn't been overlooked.

The MoGo Talk is extremely comfortable for long term wear and every day use. We have designed and patented the exclusive SoundShape ear bud design that softly yet securely conforms to the unique shape over each individual’s ear. As you put on the MoGo Talk, it comfortably fits like a great pair of in-ear professional headphones. The SoundShape design is much better than the older designs on the market today where you have to bend a hard wire around your ear or shove a larger speaker into your ear.

The MoGo Talk XD for iPhone 4 will begin shipping September 1 and will be made available through select authorized retailers for a suggested retail price of $99.99. Current MoGo Talk headset owners can upgrade to the Slim MoGo Grip Case for iPhone 4 for $24.99 or 3G/3GS for $19.99 (A $10.00 savings) for a limited time by ordering online at www.mogostore.com.

Great, more people who will look like they are talking to themselves.

Smart idea, though.

Haha. I remember laughing when people just started using bluetooth when it first came out. It did really look like they were talking to themselves...

wonder about the battery

The website says 72 hours stand by and 4 hours talk time, that seems decent and the picture look nice, but I would like to to see in person.

Edit: maybe a case for the iPad too, for use with VoIP.

Update

ID8 has let us know that their press release was a bit off. The current retail price of case is currently set at $34.99 and the 3G+3GS case is at $29.99. A $10.00 savings would bring it to $24.99 and $19.99 respectively.

Sooooo, does this mean we'll finally stop seeing douchebags walking around with their headsets on even though they're not talking to anyone?

Great concept, nice execution, poor performance

I used the 3g version of this product. The quality of the headset was unacceptable compared to a high quality product like the Jawbone. However a user may consider sacrificing this quality for this high level of convenience.

It's unfortunate they were unable to integrate headset charging with the case.
