New MP3 speaker systems launched by Altec

Speakers suitable for music lovers on the move

Following on from the launch of its iPhone speaker system, Altec Lansing has launched two speaker systems suitable for music lovers on the move.

The SoundBlade is a bluetooth stereo speaker designed to play music mobile phones, MP3 players and laptops. The SoundBlade is only 1in thick and weighs just 455g. Available from February 2008 it costs £89.99 inc. VAT.

Also available is The Orbit, an ultra-portable speaker for iPods and MP3 players. The palm-sized speaker features an on/off function that's operated by twisting the speaker so it won't accidentally turn on in transit while the wrap around cable storage ensures there are never any messy wires to untangle. Available now, the Orbit is priced at £29.99.
