CES Blues

The Consumer Electronics Show made for a busy week of new iOS accessories. In our final installment, we've got even more new gear, this time focusing on Bluetooth speakers. If seeing yet another Bluetooth-audio product raises your blood pressure, well, we've got an accessory for that, too.


This company introduced a whole range of new products at CES. Among them: The $180 Speaker Duo (pictured) and the $80 Speaker Mojo, both Bluetooth-enabled speaker systems that can stream music wirelessly. The Duo's two speakers can be pulled out and separated by up to 80 feet for stereo playback. Also new is the $50 Speaker Band, a wireless device for your wrist; the $130 Sunrise, a combination of alarm clock and wireless speaker; the $100 Academia, a combination of a desk lamp and a wireless speaker; and the $70 Express, an iPhone stand and wireless speaker that also provides mood lighting.


Braven introduced a whole host of new Bluetooth speaker options at this year's CES. Among them is the BRV-X (pictured), an outdoor speaker designed to offer big sound in the great wide open; the company hasn't yet offered word on pricing or availability. The company also announced the Mira, a portable and water-resistant speaker—use it in the shower!—that offers up to 10 hours of playback; as well as the Vibe, a distributed-audio system that gives you multi-room playback of music, which you can control directly from your iOS device.

Clamcase's $129 iPad Mini Keyboard Case, a smaller version of the company's well-known Clamcase for full-size iPads, is versatile. Yes, it sports a Bluetooth keyboard, so you can set up your small tablet like a notebook computer. But it also functions, simply, as a tablet stand for hands-free use, and as a durable case to protect your electronics when you're on the go. The entire package—iPad mini and Clamcase—weighs less than two pounds, and it's slim enough to fit easily in a purse or backpack.
