Sony Ericsson has released a Bluetooth outdoor speaker which it is claimed 'gives you a festival experience wherever you are or want to go'.
Available now, the Sony Ericsson MS500 Outdoor Wireless Speaker can pick up a Bluetooth connection up to 10m away from the phone.
It is also water-resistant and offers music playback of around five hours on two AA batteries.
The speaker is small enough to attach to your clothing and comes with a strap. It is completely controllable via the handset.
The launch of the speaker is indicative of Sony Ericsson’s strategy of focussing heavily on music on its handsets, which has previously been evident in the form of its range of Walkman phones and the use of Sony’s patented MegaBass technology.
This week saw the launch on Vodafone of the Sony Ericsson W705 Walkman phone, which includes music-focussed functions such as TrackID, SensMe and shake control.
