Audio accessories company Jabra has today announced that its durable Solemate portable Bluetooth speaker will be available in Australia next month.

The Jabra Solemate is a shock, dust, sweat and splash resistant portable Bluetooth speaker. With a width of just 64mm, the company says the Solemate's size and weight is comparable to a 500ml bottle of water.

"The Jabra Solemate is built to travel, so users can enjoy music in places they may normally not like to take their technology, such as the beach, being around food and drinks or in their gym bag," said Jabra’s regional sales manager, Karen Powell. "It also comes with a specially designed, durable sound bag."

The Solemate includes a standard 3.5mm audio jack in addition to Bluetooth connectivity.

The Jabra Solemate allows up to eight Bluetooth devices to be connected to it including smartphones, tablets and Bluetooth equipped portable music players. It also features a standard 3.5mm audio cable connection for non Bluetooth devices.

Jabra says the Solemate's internal battery will last for up to eight hours of continuous play back before needing a recharge. A built-in speakerphone function means the device can be used to handle voice calls if connected to a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone or smartphone.

The Solemate will go on sale from Monday 1 October through JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Telstra stores across the country for $199.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
