While scanning the Sony Ericsson booth at the GSMA World Congress, we noticed this eye-catching item in the accessories case. The ball-shaped Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth speaker goes far beyond what we normally see in cell phone speaker design. Designed for use with any stereo Bluetooth music phone (it doesn't have to be a Sony Ericsson handset, even though the company might prefer it to be), the MBS-100 can wirelessly broadcast your tunes to the world. And in case Bluetooth isn't your thing, it also comes with a 3.5-millimeter headset for connecting to a stereo. At 3.9 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches and 7.94 ounces, the MBS-100 remains quite portable and it comes with a carrying case. Battery life is promised at up to 5 hours of music streaming time and up to 50 hours of standby time. No, the former isn't a lot, but there's no arguing that the MBS-100 is a conversation piece. As far sound quality, we wanted to pair it with one of the new Sony Ericsson W980 Walkman phones, but we'll have to wait for a review model to do so.
