It’s been almost a month since Motorola was in the middle of their price-slashing spree. Caught in the midst of this price-slashing spree, was the Moto Hint, Motorola’s Bluetooth ear-piece. This was dropped from the normal price of $149.99 down to $79.99 indicating a possible refresh.
Later in the same day, a new Moto Hint magically appeared out of nowhere, on Best Buy’s website. However, the new Hint that appeared, had some changes in tow. According to the listing on Best Buy’s website, the changes that could be found were not cosmetic. Instead the new Moto Hint had the following improvements:
- Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR Technology
- CrystalTalk noise and wind-canceling technology
- Voice Control
- Rechargeable Battery up to 17 hours of talk-time
The original Moto Hint was still available via the Motorola website, for the reduced price of $79.99, however today, the updated version can be found. In addition to the improved battery life, and updated features, the Moto Hint also features a new price tag. Instead of being sold for $149.99, like the original version was, this updated Hint can be purchased for $129.99.
While $20 may not seem a lot, we can definitely agree on the fact that the $150 was a steep price for a blue-tooth earpiece. Regardless of what the Moto Hint can do. Let us know if you’re thinking about picking up the new Moto Hint, and if not, what bluetooth headset/ear-pieces do you use?
