Logitech debuts new Mini Boombox Bluetooth speaker

This tiny new speaker uses Bluetooth to wirelessly stream tunes from your iPhone or other compatible smartphone or tablet.

Today Logitech announced a new addition to its product family, one that will fit very nicely in the palm of your hand — the Mini Boombox. While it may look significant in stature in the above photo, we’re hearing that the speaker is only about 4.5-inches wide (Logitech hasn’t released dimensions), making it small enough to fit easily in one hand or just about any pocket or bag. The wireless speaker uses Bluetooth and functions as a smartphone accessory, designed to be paired with your iPhone or another compatible phone.

The diminutive Logitech Mini Boombox ($100) uses Bluetooth A2DP technology to stream music wirelessly from any compatible smartphone or tablet. No word yet on the exact sound specs of the speaker, but Logitech does boast that they made room for an acoustic chamber inside the speaker to enhance bass. The speaker has a rechargeable battery that can last up to 10 hours, illuminated touch controls, and a built-in mic for making calls via Bluetooth. We’ll have to see for ourselves if the sound quality is worth the price tag, but we like the idea of being able to bring a Bluetooth-enabled speaker just about anywhere. The Mini Boombox is available for pre-order now and will ship later this month.
