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.
