Has anyone seen a list like this for Bluetooth Headsets? Of course, if there is a danger from radiation, your hip is in just as much danger as your head... I don't think there is a danger myself, but this is still nice info to know...

IF there is even any danger, the difference among these levels may not even be significant.

The full list is available here: http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-6602_7-6258775-11.html

Looks like Sprint's Touch Pro 2 is very near the "Worst Offenders" list (worse than the iPhone).

I imagine the author of the article thought this was a popular enough a phone that people should know it was not tested...
