HONG KONG, April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Native Union announced the launch of its Moshi Moshi 04i Bluetooth stereo handset with dedicated iPhone dock. The high-performance Bluetooth desktop stereo speaker system, professional conference call unit and cell phone handset with noise reduction technology is equipped with a cradle base for iPhone synchronization and battery charging. Developed by award-winning product designer Michael Young, the MM04i allows users to harness all the functionality of the iPhone and enrich their overall talking and listening experience with hands-free capability and intuitive functionality.
"We are very excited to introduce the Moshi Moshi 04i, which we feel is the perfect accessory for the stylish Apple user who is looking for a unique and innovative product to enhance their iPhone experience," says John Brunner, managing director of Native Union. "The MM04i uses the latest technology to integrate the music and mobile experience for the home or business user who desires a product that is beautiful to the eye and superior in function and design."
The MM04i utilizes Bluetooth 2.1 chip technology which enables simultaneous pairing to computers and mobile phones, allowing both internet and mobile calls to be conducted through the same handset. Featuring auto pick-up/hang-up and auto connect/disconnect, the handset can be used for private calls or via conference call mode within 30 feet of the MM04i base unit. The syncing cradle charges the iPhone during use, providing uninterrupted calls and desktop music playback. The handset is available in two color combinations that accentuate the luxurious design and sanded aluminium face—silver/black and copper/taupe.
In addition to providing users with a comfortable, unique, and highly functional way to interact with their iPhone, the MM04i also dramatically reduces exposure to the potentially harmful radiation emitted by mobile devices. Data from TUV, the world's leading certification company, reveal that the Moshi Moshi 04i reduces radiation exposure by 96 percent, giving users a healthy and productive way to use their iPhone by nearly eliminating mobile radiation emissions, which have been linked by long-term medical studies to a variety of health risks including cancer.

- Three modes: Private call / Conference call / Desktop speaker system
