IFA 07: Altec Lansing launches Nobi portable speaker for Nokia XpressMusic Series phones

IFA 2007, Mobile phones

All eyes were on Nokia yesterday for its Go Play launch event. One thing mentioned was a range of third-party accessories for Nokia’s music phones. Well, the first of those has now been launched – the Altec Lansing Nobi portable speaker.

A comical name, but a serious use – delivering stereo sound from the new Nokia XpressMusic series of MP3-enabled mobile phones. Small enough to fit in a pocket, bag or backpack, the Nobi portable speaker system weighs just 10oz. Connect to a Nokia XpressMusic phone (or other device) via its 2.5mm connector and you get what’s promised to be a ‘rich, clear 360-degree sound’.

Powered by 2x AAA batteries (which offer 24 hours of sound), it should be available in October. Price to be confirmed.
