Get a Logitech Bluetooth speaker for $59.99
Pair this with your Android phone, iPhone, iPad, or any other stereo-Bluetooth-compatible device for big audio dynamite just about anywhere.
I'm a big fan of Bluetooth speakers. Plunk one down just about anywhere and you can wirelessly stream tunes from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. I have one of those Jawbone Jamboxes, and it's proven a great little accessory.
But pricey; it lists for around $200. Here's a much more affordable alternative: for a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Logitech Wireless Speaker for $59.99 shipped (plus sales tax where applicable).
Although Best Buy's product page indicates this is "for Apple iPad," the Wireless Speaker can pair with any device that supports A2DP, aka stereo Bluetooth. That means it'll work with an iPhone or Android phone, as well as many tablets and laptops. It also has a 3.5mm input jack, so it's also compatible with non-Bluetooth devices.
Of course, wireless is where it's at. And because the LWS relies on Bluetooth rather than a Wi-Fi network, it can literally work anywhere--unlike certain other wireless-speaker technologies (cough, AirPlay, cough).
Indeed, the gizmo comes with a rechargeable battery (which Logitech says is good for up to 10 hours), so you can take it to the park, the beach, or wherever. To that end, Logitech supplies a carrying case.
Much as I like using a speaker like this for music, it's particularly great alongside my tablet when I'm watching movies or TV shows. Needless to say, it's a huge improvement over any built-in speakers.
I can't comment on the Logitech's overall audio quality, as I haven't heard one firsthand (firstear?). But the handful of user reviews are exceedingly positive (except for the one about the unit that died--but, thankfully, Logitech backs the Wireless Speaker with a two-year warranty).
Uh, oh...I've just about talked myself into buying one of these, even though I don't really need another Bluetooth speaker. Must... fight... cheap-deal urge!
Bonus deal: Speaking of Bluetooth goodies, 1SaleADay has the refurbished Jawbone ICON Bluetooth headset for $19.99, plus $5 for shipping. It comes in your choice of styles (Hero, Denim, Thinker) and includes a 90-day warranty. CNET's rating on this, er, iconic headset, which sells new for $99(!): excellent.
