Earlier today, we showed off how the Moto Hint was reduced in price from $149.99 down to $79.99 and asked if this was possibly a “hint” towards a new version coming out. Well thanks to a user on Google+, it seems that Motorola did just that, and has released an updated version of the Hint.
According to the Product Features on the Best Buy page, there are a few updated features that come along with the 2nd Gen Moto Hint.
- Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR Technology
- CrystalTalk noise and wind canceling technology
- Voice Control
- Rechargeable Battery up to 17 hours of talk-time
The biggest change here is the battery life. The first generation of the Moto Hint had a talk time battery life of 10 hours, the new version is touted to have a battery life of 17 hours worth of talk time. On top of the fact that the Hint still comes with a charging case for whenever you’re out of juice.
Finally, the price for the 2nd generation Moto Hint is down from $149.99, and instead is now being sold at $129.99 for a brand new one. If you’re still interested in picking up the old one, you can grab one from the Motorola website, but there are no signs of the new one being available anywhere other than Best Buy at this moment.
Please let us know what you think about the updated Moto Hint and whether you’ll be springing for the new version or just sticking with the 1st generation in the comments below. If there are anymore details released about this new version, we will be sure to let everyone know.
