Desktop Bluetooth Handsfree
Bit of a strange one this. I'm fed up with trying to answer the phone (a HTC Touch HD) whilst using the KB mouse in teh EduGeek office. Short of buying a seperate microphone and Bluetooth dongle and using the PC as a hands free device, is there such a thing as an office handsfree kit, so I can just press a button to answer the phone and speak, just like the car kits?

My boss bought a car kit the other week that doesn't have a headset, it's like an outstation that clips to the sun visor and works like a speakerphone. No idea what it was called though, it came from eBay I think.
Not sure if that's quite what you mean though.

I am guessing your looking for something like this:
Plantronics )) Mobile )) Bluetooth Mobile Headsets

Parrot - plug-n-play-auto-moto is a great tool, my mum has one and loves it, fine she uses it in her car but they say its great for a desk based speakerphone, and parrat stuff is good I have a wired in one in the car and thats good.

Got one with my Panasonic phones some time back thanks to Tom @ smoothwall...
Plantronics C65 Wireless DECT Headset
..is the one I have and it's blooming marvellous
You do need a decent base though so I'd look at something like this:
Panasonic KX-TG 8422 Phone With Plantronics C65 Wireless Headset
Price wise the ligo site is definitely hard to beat and excellent service too...

The parrot looks like a good idea I presume it charges from usb connector as well so that way you'll be able to take it on the road with you too.

Just a nugget really but I was under the impression I'd need bluetooth to get something like this but the Plantronics I linked to above uses the same wireless spectrum as other wireless phones (which aren't - obviously - bluetooth). Simple enough pairing too...
Figured it's worth stating the obvious as I got a little caught up in the world as I thought I understood it at the time.

I don't want a headset if I can avoid it. The Parrot kit looks good (I have Parrot in the car and it's quite exeptional). I just hate putting phones to my ear when I need to be typing and headsets annoy me.

No, it's built into this: Alpine-Headunits-CDE-104BTi
And once coupled with the (optional) microphone works brilliantly. The head unit can actually interrogate you phones adress book so you can dial from it!
