Nokia speakers: a small fashion statement

The latest attempt to make phones sound good.


Undeterred by iPhone mania, Nokia continues to chug along with its own music phone efforts and has just come out with a new portable speaker device for its Xpress handset. That's a good thing, considering some of the unfortunate alternatives we've seen out there for other phone speakers.

Rather than something that looks like a genetic experiment gone awry, Nokia's MD-6 "Pocket Speakers" take on a sleek form that looks something like a cigarette lighter as seen on Following that theme, it has a hinged top that opens to reveal both speakers at one end of its 4.8-inch-long case.

At this size it won't be breaking any eardrums, but it won't take up nearly as much room as other portable speaker sets either, such as a clamshell version we cited recently. The last thing we need is a speaker accessory that's as big as the handset itself.
