Jawbone Jambox launches for Xmas


New Bluetooth speaker and microphone system, Jambox, from US manufacturer Jawbone available in UK in time for Christmas gifting season

Jawbone last week launched its new wireless Bluetooth product the ‘Jambox’ (pictured), which can be used as both a speaker and a microphone.

The six inch device, which launched in the US last week and is expected to be available in the UK by Christmas, is effectively a loud speaker for making and receiving calls.

As with the Cius, the forthcoming enterprise tablet device from Jawbone partner Cisco, the Bluetooth speaker can connect to multiple devices, including computers, tablets, MP3 players and mobile phones. The device can also receive regular software updates to work on all new media players.

The Jambox is compatible with all smartphone operating systems. It will cost around £150 from Jawbone retail and distribution partners.
