parrot-1120.jpgParrot has been a busy little company, working hard in the aviary on several different products to launch at CES 2008. Amongst them are wireless stereo speakers, the DS1120, plus a DS3120 stereo.

The first product works by streaming music via Bluetooth from the source, however if it doesn’t have stereo Bluetooth, a Bluetooth USB dongle and line-in RCA jack is also included. The DS1120 will sell for around £140 in the UK when it launches mid year.

Next up for keen ornithologists, the DS3120 stereo also plays music wirelessly, but contains a 1.8″ screen, SD card slot, line-in plus FM/RDS radio. The nifty thing here is that when you stream from a mobile, the device can display phone contacts information when making and receiving a call when in proximity, plus can play voice calls. Displaying even more of its clever intuition, when receiving a call, the music is automatically muted, and the contact’s image can be displayed on screen as well. This one will drop for about £125 apparently.
