CES - Blaupunkt unveils speakers that double as car subwoofer

Blaupunkt unveils portable speakers that can be used at home and in the car.

Stereo speaker maker Blaupunkt is showing off portable speakers that can also double as a powered subwoofer for a car stereo system at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

Music devices can be hooked up to the speakers, named Velocity 2Go, through a 3.5-millimeter headphone input jack, the company said. There are also rear-panel RCA inputs for use with a home stereo, preamplifier, TV set, or other audio device.

Velocity 2Go's built-in amplifiers are capable of up to 160 watts of power when plugged in or using a standard 12-volt car battery, and 60 watts of power when using eight standard rechargeable AA batteries.

Velocity 2Go is already available in two sizes. The Velocity 2Go 5 has dual 5-1/4-inch woofers and a pair of 3/4 inch tweeters in an 8-liter casing. The larger portable speaker, the Velocity 2Go 6, has two 6-1/2-inch woofers and 1-inch tweeters in a 15-liter enclosure, making it capable of higher output.

The Velocity 2Go 5 sells in the U.S. for $399.95, while the Velocity 2Go 6 is available for US$449.95. The company is also offering the QuickOut car dock as an option for US$119.95.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
