Bluetooth goes BOOM

5.6kg 'portable' speaker proves weight is secondary to sharing ya sounds

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

French mobile phone accessories company Parrot has launched its BOOMBOX – a Hi-Fi compact speaker that uses Bluetooth wireless technology.

The 60-Watt speaker (430 mm x 150 mm x 225 mm) is compatible with Bluetooth music sources, such as mobile phones, MP3-players and PCs - which means you can play tunes through the air avoiding cumbersome cables.

It also accepts non-Bluetooth sources if used with a USB dongle and analogue audio devices (CD players, tuners, etc) via an auxiliary line.

The Parrot BOOMBOX has will be available from Q2 2007 at £150 inc VAT.
