My local Apple Store got 2 in today but they sold out ASAP. Rep said he had no idea on quality since they hadn't gotten to play with them or get feedback yet.

That looks pretty hot.

Any idea on how much? and is it compatible with other Bluetooth phones or is it locked to only Apple iPhone!

Ok scratch that.

$129 for the headset. I think that a bit over doing it don't you think?!

Now, I still love the looks of it, but come on. It ain't worth $129

The Jawbone is $119. The iPhone Bluetooth Headset comes with the headset plus a dock with all of the appropriate cables and travel stuff. A little price but if it works well then it's worth it, I'm sure.

There doesn't seem to be an answer/hang up button or volume buttons as far as I can see. It does seem very pricey though.

As long as it performs as well as the Jawbone, the price isn't bad. I would really miss the volume and call/hangup button on my H500 though. I'd miss the ability to voice-dial with it too, making it a 100% hands-free experience, but since the iPhone and many phones don't have voice-dial, I can't really consider that a factor.

Too bad the dock isn't black too. That would look very slick.

I second that! If it works as well as the jawbone, which I doubt, it would be an awesome headset. I do not see a vibration sensor or anything else that will help it distinguish your voice vs the background noise.

that docking station is hot though...tbe apple packaging is great!...

It has a button on the top.
