Sony's Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 is now available to buy in the US
While the BSP60 is listed over at Sony Mobile's official US shop, you'll actually need to visit a third party retailer (MobilePlanet) in order to buy it. The accessory costs $319, plus $4.99 for standard shipping (4 to 7 days). You can also choose next day shipping (via UPS Air) for an extra $27.95.
What can this Sony Smart Bluetooth Speaker do for $320? Well, it can be controlled by voice (in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, or Japanese), and, when it's paired to a smartphone via NFC or Bluetooth, you can use it as your "office assistant." For example, you can take hands-free calls, play music, set alarms, check the weather forecast, and more - all just by talking to the BSP60.
The new Sony accessory weighs $349 grams, includes 2.5 W stereo speakers, and works with all handsets running Android 4.4 KitKat or later (though Sony says its best pair is an Xperia Z3+). So, do you think the BSP60 is worth $319?
