It has a speakerphone and may be paired with your mobile and used as a Bluetooth hands-free.

You can browse your address book, call your contacts and even search using your voice, while keeping your hands on the wheel.

What is more important is that Motorola TN500 can actually make use of your data plan on your phone and get you traffic updates, fuel prices, weather forecasts, flight status and more, powered by Bing. And you can do all of this with your voice! The ugly thing is that these local search features is part of a service called MotoExtras and requires a subscription after a 90 day trial.
