Motorola's Moto Stream is here to "set music free" (and no, it's not a smartphone)

Took a while to realize what that is...

Nexus Q, round 2? Not that I have a problem with that, I always thought the Q was a cool concept.

The Chromecast was what the Nexus Q was supposed to be. A device connected to your TV that you could communicate with by using your phone to stream media to.

Very happy with my Chromecast, great product and a great price.

Seems cool but...
"The Moto Stream supports up to five simultaneous Bluetooth connections to smartphones running Android, iOS, or Windows Phone."
How does this work regarding music... if I have 2 devices SIMULTANEOUSLY paired to the Stream... what device would play music?

They will need to fight to the death on who gets next play on it

When you request to play a song while one is already playing, I would guess it gets put into a queue.

May be all will play it simultaneously...

This is the right way for doing a Nexus Q. And look at that price!

No, its the SOL speaker without the speaker. Moto already had the tech, why not sell it!

Wow, since when do motorola phones have a second menu bar?
The scriptgirl must have been asleep while shooting this commercial, I hope the first lenovorola phone isn't going to be as sloppy.
This ad did probably cost thousands of dollars and nobody noticed this?

Motorola is a bit late to the party..
This for example is HTC's offering from May 2012

And I think I'd rather this simple design than
a multi-faced icosahedron...

This does sound like a cool idea, and I like the design. I know it's been done already, and its usefulness would be limited for me (I've never invested in wired speaker systems) but I know some people who could make use out of this.

Yellow Kevlar woven speakers represents B&W 8series or 6series
