Motorola today unveiled its new NFC-equipped ELITE FLIP, an advanced Bluetooth headset that shares many of its abilities with the new ELITE SLIVER that was also shown today.

The versatile design of the ELITE FLIP gives users the choice between use of an over-the-ear hook for mounting or an in-ear gel. Ease of use is fostered by the FLIP's namesake switch, which allows the user to power on the headset and answer a call in one fell swoop, preventing the need for the headset to be powered on at all times waiting for a call. If you do choose to leave the headset powered on, it should be good for up to 12 hours of standby time or 6 hours of talk time, according to Motorola.

Like the ELITE SLIVER, the new ELITE FLIP uses NFC wireless to offer an improved pairing process that requires little more than tapping the headset against a compatible NFC smartphone. Likewise, the ELITE FLIP also supports Bluetooth Class 1 connections to give it the ability to maintain a connection up to 300 feet away, so users aren't tied down to their phones. Motorola's ELITE FLIP also includes Motorola's CrystalTalk technology and dual microphones for reduced background noise, and supports wideband HD Audio Plus for improved call sound quality.

Motorola's ELITE FLIP also works with the company's free My MotoSpeak smartphone app, which will give users the ability to not only hear inbound text messages, but actually dictate them entirely hands-free, thanks to a dedicated "smart button" found on the headset. My MotoSpeak can also be used to configure headsets settings, including noise cancellation and the equalizer.

The Motorola ELITE FLIP will be available from Motorola's online store starting on October 24 for $99.99.
