Looking like a tiny music loving planet, Sony Ericsson's launched its first Bluetooth speaker for piping tunes direct from your mobile.Designed to compliment its Walkman range, the MBS-100's holes aren't just for show – they supposedly fling audio in all directions for more expansive sound.Roughly the size of a large grapefruit, it's a little oversized for pocket use but should roll nicely into a backpack.Inside is a rechargeable battery, so no fiddling with double AAs on your travels. The cells will see you through five hours of mobile partying before needing a plug point, enough to exhaust even the most hardcore of headbangers.EssentialsSony Ericsson MBS-100Price: £TBAOn sale: Q1 2008Contact: Sony EricssonRelated stories:Sony Ericsson's smart casual K630Gadget of the Day – Parrot PARTYGadget of the Day: Samsin SBS-6600 Bluetooth Speakers
