First, Panasonic's upcoming SC-MC07 Compact Wireless Stereo Speaker reminded me of a UFO. Then I thought Chipwich or some Drake or Hostess snack cake.
Whatever image it conjures up, the $69.99 SC-MC07 streams music wirelessly from smartphones and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. The unit is powered by AA batteries or an included USB cable.
I got a quick sound demo at a recent Panasonic press event and like a lot of these small Bluetooth speakers, it plays louder than you'd think for its size.
Wondering what that logo on the top is? Well, Panasonic says you'll be able to get the speaker with your favorite sports team's logo emblazoned on to top of it. At least that's the plan.
