Logitech Mini Boombox

Logitech has announced a new little Bluetooth speaker that in addition to handling music and media playback also serves as a speakerphone for honest-to-goodness phone calls. Logitech's specs only mention the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch as being supported, but we're willing to bet our lowly Android smartphones will work as well.

The Mini Boombox has an internal battery (recharable via miniUSB) that claims to have up to 10 hours' playback time. It's got backlit controls via a touch panel on top of the speaker, an on-off switch, line in, and the whole thing is small enough to be palmed one-handed.

It's available for preorder for $99 and is expected to ship sometime this month.

If they have the sound quality, they have a customer. I was looking at the Jawbone, but it's just so expensive for a little speaker. But they do have really awesome sound, so we'll see how Logitech does with this little guy

I love my jawbone jambox and this reminds me of it. One thing I think was a mistake though on Logitech's part is the touch buttons. The jambox has regular buttons. Although the jambox doesn't have the play/pause, next track, previous track buttons that this one has.

miniUSB? really?

i tried the Jawbone Jambox and was really disappointed. build quality, small size, BT connection, and design were great but sound quality and max volume were really POOR. go test it in a Best Buy before you buy it. price was not cheap either at $200. i'm hoping these devices get better.

Looks hot.
I'm in the market for something like this.

The Jambox is legit! Sound quality is actually amazing. There's a setting that limits sound volume, bet that was turned on for previous poster's experience. Keep that setting off and Jambox kicks! I got mine for 50% off at a local at&t store. I think they were desperate for accessory sales. Lawl!

I do like the backlight displays on this logitech though.

where exactly is this volume-limit setting?
