The Plantronics Voyager Edge
The Plantronics Voyager Edge is a Bluetooth earpiece for talking on the go.
I own a Plantronics headset, and while the voice quality is not brilliant if receiving calls from abroad, for local use the headsets do have good range and stability. The new design includes smart sensors for answering calls through voice activation or placing the tech within your ear, noise cancellation, a portable charging case and an option of three different colors.
The Voyager Edge will be available from April.

A 59 euro Firefox mobile phone
While a number of tech firms are looking at emerging markets and low-cost entry smartphones to boost the bank account, few have gone so far as to create mobile devices for no more than 59 euros ($81).
Running the Mozilla Firefox operating system, Alcatel's Fire C smartphone includes a 3.5-inch HVGA screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and VGA camera.
The phone is due to ship out in the first quarter of 2014.

A data compressing, roaming cost saving app
Opera Max, a free, data saving app has been launched at Mobile World Congress this year.
The application compresses data across applications including video, text and images on your mobile device -- in order to get the most out of data plans and make roaming cheaper. The company says that your data plan's life can be extended by up to 50 percent.
A beta version is currently available and pre-registered Android users in the U.S. and Europe are able to download a version of the application.
