The future's bright

Orange has unveiled what it claims is the world's first solar-powered Bluetooth headset.

The Iqua BHS-603 Sun Bluetooth headset draws its power directly from the Sun, and offers ecologically friendly use free from any charging devices.

The 14g device fits directly into the ear and offers 200 hours of standby time and nine hours talk time in complete darkness, according to the company.

Orange said that the headset is compatible with a range of PDAs, Bluetooth-enabled PCs and mobile phones, including Apple's iPhone.

The Iqua BHS-603 SUN Bluetooth headset costs £49.99 and is available exclusively from Orange for the next three months.
