Logitech Unveils Mini Boombox

Logitech unveiled the Logitech Mini Boombox, a compact sound system for music, movies, games and calls that pairs easily with smartphones, tablets and other Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Logitech Mini Boombox features a specially designed acoustic chamber that lets you enjoy enhanced bass, and a handy speakerphone with built-in mic gives you clear calls in the office, in the car or in the backyard.

The Logitech Mini Boombox pairs easily with popular smartphones, tablets and other devices that support Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), and works with phones that support Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.5). It features an internal battery that charges over USB, and it stays powered for up to ten hours, depending on usage and environmental settings. And with a backlit touch control panel, you can easily control it, night or day.

The Logitech Mini Boombox is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in November, for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
