Media Advisory: Future Shop Offers Quebec Residents Tips on Buying Cell Phone Headsets

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 26, 2008) -

What: Future Shop offers buying tips and a large selection of cell phone headsets to help Quebec customers move to hands free driving.

Why: Starting April 1st, 2008, the new Act to amend the Highway Safety Code adopted on Dec 19, 2007 will take effect. As part of this Act, hand-held cell phones will not be allowed while driving.

Future Shop's tips for buying cell phone head sets:

1. Wireless - consider a wireless Bluetooth headset now that they are more affordable to replace the wired hands free kits.

2. Battery life - consider how long the talk time or standby time is. Talk time would be anywhere from 6-8 hours and standby time would be 160 - 192 hours.

3. Ease of hook up - does the headset have quick pairing. Quick pairing means that out of the box it is ready for pairing. There is no hassle of going through a process to start the pairing between the headset and the cell phone.

4. Sound quality - does the headset have noise cancellation to improve the quality of sound for you and the person you are talking to.
