AT&T Loudspeak'r Hands Free Bluetooth Stereo SpeakerAT&T's $99 portable Bluetooth speaker takes on Jawbone's Jambox.
Hi. I'm David Conoway, Executive Editor for CNET.com and I'm here with the AT&T Loud Speaker or actually it's called Loud Speaker something like that because it has a wondering apostrophe there at the end of it's name. It's a little bit bizarre but this is a Bluetooth Speaker...it's a mini Bluetooth Speaker sort of like the Jawbone JAMBOX a little bit smaller. Doesn't sound quite as good but it's actually sounds pretty good for it's size. It get's about 5 hours of battery life from a single charge. You can take it...basically anywhere you go...small enough to fit in new (??)...it doesn't come with a carrying case but it does have speaker phone functionality. You just stream music from your Bluetooth Smart Phone or Tablet and you can also talk on the phone obviously with that speaker phone capability. There's an auxiliary input in the back if you have a none Bluetooth device. Most Smart Phones and Tablets due have Bluetooth this days. And it charged via USB. You can charge it via your computer or an actual AC Adapter that's included. That's really all there is to it as I said it sounds pretty good and place loud for it's size. You don't wanna run really base heavy material through this...not the best speaker for something like (Skrillex?) or again really heavy base...I would like to see at about $20 less. This retail is for ($99.99?). I'm David Conoway and that's the AT&T Loud Speaker...Portable Bluetooth speaker with speaker phone.
