Sometimes, you don’t want to bother holding your cell phone up to your head. Sometimes, you don’t want headphones to stick out of your ears for your music enjoyment experience. Addressing both of these desires is the recently revealed EQ5 Portable Wireless Speaker from the people at Motorola. It’s certainly a little larger than some other Bluetooth headsets, but it also provides a heck of a lot more sound output.
On the one hand, you can pair it with a handset for the purpose of using it as a speakerphone, answering calls in a tele-conference kind of way. Aiding in this purpose are the echo-cancellation and noise-reduction features. On the other hand, you can do the A2DP Bluetooth pairing for musical enjoyment, thanks to the integrated media controls in the center.
Look for the Motorola EQ5 Portable Wireless Speaker to launch during Q2 2008. No word on price.
