Sony Ericsson has unveiled a Bluetooth speaker system specifically for the outdoors. While many maybe grimacing at the thought of having to endure the latest chart toppers while enjoying a Sunday stroll through the park, the Outdoor Wireless Speaker MS500 certainly ticks all the boxes for an appealing music accessory. Not only is it small enough to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, it also sports a splash-proof shell and carrying strap.
Compatible with most Bluetooth handsets from all the major manufacturers, the Outdoor Wireless Speaker MS500 runs wirelessly on two AA batteries with a music playback time of up to five hours. Once paired you will be able to use your mobile as a remote control to change tracks and increase the volume with a Bluetooth range of up to ten meters.
The Sony Ericsson Outdoor Wireless Speaker MS500 is available in orange and black or white and pink although on sale dates and pricing is yet to be confirmed.
