We strolled over to Sony Ericsson’s booth and took a look at the Media Speaker introduced a while ago. There isn’t much to it: you open the “hatch”, you plug your phone into the exposed 3.5mm headphone jack and it essentially becomes a dock with speakers. I thought the unit’s size was justified considering how much weight it’d have to support for larger phones.
I was also surprised that the device is rechargeable – this seems like something you’d need to buy triple A batteries for. Unfortunately, it was loud in Sony Ericsson’s booth so I couldn’t really get an idea of just how loud it is on video, but I can tell you I couldn’t clearly hear whatever was playing. (And to be fair, I didn’t check the volume.) Check it out in the video above.
PS: No, you’re not the only ones who think this thing belongs at the end of a gun.
