Ever since MP3 players became fashionable , portable speakers have become the ultimate solution to all our music woes while on the move.
The corporate laptop-toting type – and they are a dime a dozen today – would love to include a compact set of speakers as well. The idea is to get something that fits easily in one's luggage, or laptop bag.
Coming back to the SoundPod, it was initially pitched as an iPod travel dock, but can be used with any device with a 3.5mm jack. I've been using it with the Motorola Rokr E8, and it works just as well.
A neat foldable design allows you to box it in with your luggage. A plastic fixture that comes bundled can be fixed to the front to prop up the player.
The cabling is short, which is perhaps the only downside to the SoundPod. The on/off button is on the top, and the battery cover on the rear opens to reveal space for four AAA batteries.
The SoundPod costs Rs 750, and hurry – I'm told a 6V DC adaptor comes free for a limited time. This is a fabulous price, considering what it can do.
GOOD:good battery life,good price for sound.
BAD:NOPE SOUND CONTROL
