Gear4 BlackBoxes crash land in UK

Oh Mamma! We've just fallen in love with a Bluetooth speaker. The brick-like BlackBox is without doubt the coolest of its genre, packed chock-full wit

Oh Mamma! We've just fallen in love with a Bluetooth speaker. The brick-like BlackBox is without doubt the coolest of its genre, packed chock-full with all the flashy LED goodness a man and his Bluetooth phone needs.The deep gloss finish hides both the Chocolate-style touch sensitive controls and a bank of red LEDs that react to your tunes. Its two speakers give a combined total of 24W piped from an A2DP compatible mobile or MP3 player – a list which sadly doesn't include the new iPods or the iPhone. Boo!Also rocking along to our Bluetooth tech is the BlackBox Mini, a shrunk down version with the same light show features but a smaller 4W output from its dinky internal cones.Both should co-ordinate perfectly with our new black-suited 8GB N95. iPhone can go take a hike – for now.EssentialsGear4 BlackBox, BlackBox MiniPrice: £100, £50On sale: October Contact: Gear4Related stories:Gadget of the Day – Gear4 HouseParty BluGadget of The Day – Gear4 BluPhonesGear4 throws a new HouseParty for your ‘Pod
