Mobile Home - Or How To Use Siri On Your iPhone While Driving Without Taking Your Eyes From The Road [Product Review]
The Mobile Home is one of those gadgets you don’t even know you need, until you use it. It is designed to improve your existing car hands-free system, help you to easier interact with your iPhone Personal Assistant, Siri and allow you to use your phone while driving, making sure your hands stay on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road in front of you!

The Mobile Home arrived quickly by priority mail. The package contains one unit of the Mobile Home with a full set of accessories including a metal visor clip, Velcro band sticky back fasteners if you prefer to mount the mobile home anywhere else then on your car’s visor and two CR2450 (each battery is good for around 6 months under normal use conditions) – low priced replacements available here.
The device is very simple to use – simply unpack it, hit the pairing button for a couple of seconds to allow the Bluetooth connection setup, fix the unit in your car and you’re ready to go. The Mobile Home is compatible with any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad with Siri enabled (some functions may vary though based on your phone or tablet’s setup) and will allow you interact with Siri just as you would do it directly from your device.

The LG Harman Kardon Tone Infinim (HBS-900) will hit the markets this summer. No pricing information was released yet by Harman Kardon or LG, but, if we consider LG’s HBS-800 model featuring JBL audio ran for $120 US when it was released, we appreciate the Tone Infinim will be north of this price point due to Harman Kardon‘s implication in the project.
