In addition to unveiling a trio of new Rokr phones, Motorola announced today the U.S. availability of the Motorola Rokr EQ7 and the Motorola Rokr EQ5 portable speakers. The Bluetooth accessories allow you to wirelessly play your music or take speakerphone calls from a compatible cell phone like the Motorola Rokr E8 and can be purchased directly from Motorola or at electronic retail stores.

The Motorola Rokr EQ7 features four JBL speakers and noise- and echo-reduction technology for better sound quality during phone calls. While it's Bluetooth-enabled (A2DP), there's also a 3.5mm audio cable included in the box so you can connect other non-Bluetooth devices, such as an MP3 player, to play your music. The Rokr EQ7 has a retail price of $199.95.
