Sony's Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 is now available to buy in the US

Sony' Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 is now available to buy in the US
Released back in June in Europe, the Sony BSP60 - which is presented as a Smart Bluetooth Speaker - is now also 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?
