Kent GermanFormer senior managing editor / features
Kent was a senior managing editor at CNET News. A veteran of CNET since 2003, he reviewed the first iPhone and worked in both the London and San Francisco offices. When not working, he's planning his next vacation, walking his dog or watching planes land at the airport (yes, really).
There's always a lot more to find in a Nokia booth than just the company's phones. Typically, you'll find a gallery of Bluetooth headsets and cell phone accessories that round out the company's offerings. I like to scope out cell phone speakers and I found two models, the MD-6 and the MD-7W. The MD-6 mini-speakers are shaped like a black and red lipstick case. At 4.8 by 1.3 by 1.3 inches, the speakers can be slipped into your pocket with ease, and weigh just 4.9 grams with the four included AA batteries that supply the juice. To expose the speakers, just snap open the case and then connect the MD-6 to your Nokia music phone. The speakers also offer a FM radio antenna, and Nokia promises that you'll be able to get 270 hours of play time.
For true wireless users, Nokia was also showing the MD-7W Bluetooth speakers. Sporting a minimalist design in white, the MD-7Ws have clean lines that are quite attractive. At 2 by 4.1 by 2.6 inches and 11.21 ounces, they won't fit in your pocket but you can carry them in a small bag. They support 3D sound and operate off four AA batteries.
