Miniature Bluetooth speakers are become rather common place, but none have been some impressive as Jawbone’s Jambox.  While it lacks the gusto of other portable, battery powered speakers, it makes up for that short coming with a pocket sized build and excellent battery life that can last up to a good solid 10 hours.  However, one major draw back is its cost of $200.

Enter Logitech’s Mini Boombox.  It’s offers a comparble feature set at the Jambox but at half the price; $100.  In fact, the feature set is virtually the same, though at this point we can’t tell just how small it is.  Logitech has posted an image of it sliding into a bag’s side pocket, though given its shape we’re a bit skeptical about the depicted slender build.  That said, Logitech has one-upped Jawbone by finishing the top of the box with backlit touch controls – a nice convenience for those that have a penchant to listen to tunes in mood lighting.  Lastly, a built-in mic means that calls can be made and received on the portable Bluetooth speaker.

No word on a launch date, though we’d expect it to arrive this month.  In the mean while you can preorder the Logitech Mini Boombox for $99.99.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
