Jawbone has rolled out an even louder version of its portable wireless speakers for smartphones and Tablets.
Jambox was the first wireless speaker to bring great audio quality to the music, movies and games normally trapped between earbuds on mobile devices, said Jawbone chief executive Hosain Rahman.
"With Big Jambox we utilised state-of-the-art audio technology to fill a much larger space with amazing sound without sacrificing portability."
The original Jambox is credited with starting a wireless speaker trend with a sleek, pocket-sized sound system that syncs to gadgets using Bluetooth capabilities.
Big Jambox amplifies the technology in the original, which is about a third of the size of its newly-unveiled sibling. It measures 25.6cm x 8cm x 9.3cm and weighs 1.2kg. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers about 15 hours of continuous play.
Big Jambox will follow its sibling when it comes to software that can be updated at its site to enhance device features.
The Big Jambox costs US$299 (RM900) and is expected to start shipping in the coming months. - AFP/Relaxnews 2012
