Moon-like Bluetooth speaker is out of this world

Sony Ericsson's MBS-100

Top three mobile application threats

Crater-face is usually a term reserved for pre-pubescent teens and South American generalissimos. But Sony Ericson’s MBS-100 Bluetooth speaker also looks set for some name-calling if its lunar-like design's anything to go by.

Sony Ericsson's MBS-100: good mooning

We’ve no idea what inspired the moon-like looko, but the Bluetooth 1.2 speaker can generate 1.5W of sound - not enough to put anyone into orbit, we'd say - when music's streamed to it over A2DP. The speaker's battery pack takes about five hours to fully charge, but will give 50 hours of standby time and five hours of continuous use.

Its diameter is 10cm, it weighs 225g and a handy carrying bag is thrown in, although you use that more for hiding old crater-face away from the public though.

The MBS-100 will touch-down before the end of this year, but a priced hasn’t been confirmed yet.
