Nokia HS-13wBluetooth headsets have graduated into an entirely new league. A new generation of the devices feature built-in LCDs so that you can see who’s calling without ever digging around for your phone. Some of the new models coming to market include:
Nokia’s HS-13w Bluetooth Picture Headset. According to Josh Rubin:

The HS-13w is a new wireless headset from Nokia. It includes a color display for viewing pictures and browsing the contact list. It also includes a voice dialing feature that supports speaking numbers or the name of someone in the contact list. Two things make this headset intriguing– first, it’s meant to be like techno jewelry. you wear it around your neck and display images on it. A digital locket. Second is the addition of a functional display for looking up and dialing contacts.

The Sony Ericsson HBH-200 Bluetooth headset also departs from previous all-in-one headset designs, sporting an LCD that dangles from the actual earbud itself.
The Jabra BT800 is a Bluetooth headset with a 21×64 pixel LCD display, five ringtones, vibrating mode, noise cancellation, six hours of talk time, charging via both USB and AC power, and that weighs in at just three-fourths of an ounce according to Engadget. (The PowerPage is a big fan of Jabra’s BT250).
The cool thing about this new generation of Bluetooth headset is that you can see who’s calling without having to rummage through your gear bag to find your phone.
