Listen to your music wirelessly wherever you roam with the Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Portable Bluetooth Speaker ($TBA; Q1-Q2 2008). This great-looking orb-shaped speaker packs in Bluetooth technology for devices that support audio streaming, but can also be used with nearly any device thanks to a 3.5mm audio input jack. A built-in rechargeable battery keeps the music playing no matter where you are, and its small size makes it easy to pack along with you. [Thanks, Dennis]
