So I’ve been out most of the day, but I’m here now. Had to get some stuff done out of the house and then had to do more stuff around here, fun-fun. Anyway, Jabra has just announced the Solemate, see that play on words there, yesh I don’t think it’s cute either. The Solemate is a portable speaker and I think it’s in direct competition with the Jawbone Jambox, price is $199 and you can get it in either black or white.
Play that funky music – loud, clear and anywhere with the new Jabra Solemate. About the size and weight of a water bottle, the Jabra Solemate is small and light and features a thick carrying strap that makes it even easier to carry around and use in any environment. A unique rubber ‘sole’ stores a 3.5 mm audio cable and a sound bag provides an extra layer of protection in sand, moisture and sunny outdoor conditions. The Jabra Solemate is available for pre-order at Amazon.com beginning today and will be available for purchase at Best Buy retail stores, BestBuy.com and Amazon.com on September 2nd.
Jabra has also announced a partnership with ClubCreate, a social platform for music creation and collaboration that allows music lovers to play their remixed tunes via the Solemate speaker. Combining Jabra’s heritage in creating high-quality audio devices and ClubCreate’s platform for music expression creates an experience unlike any other. With the rise of creating customized music and ring tones for mobile phones, the Jabra Solemate and ClubCreate partnership capitalizes on the trend, enabling users to legally create and personalize their own music with ClubCreate and share what they’ve created with friends and family via the Solemate.
A multifunctional portable wireless speaker, the Jabra Solemate enables music lovers to enjoy the freedom of big sound with strong, deep bass from an integrated subwoofer and rich, vibrant acoustics from dual tweeters. The Jabra Solemate connects to any device that can play music – either corded or wirelessly – using Bluetooth technology, a 3.5mm audio cable or USB cable, and caters to all types of uses, indoors or outdoors. Whether connected to a mobile phone, tablet, iPad®, iPod®, mp3 Player or laptop, the Solemate is the perfect audio companion to play music clearly and loudly.
