Bangalore, August 312015: Appearances can be deceptive. The Frontech Wireless Bluetooth Speaker model JIL-3906 looks and feels like any other portable speaker -- except for the microSD card slot next to the USB charging port.
This lets you plug in a card with your favourite tracks and play them straight from the speaker, without benefit of a separate player. If you insert the AUX cable provided, it serves as an antenna and unleashes the FM radio function of the speaker.
Recognizing that parties are often held outdoors, the JIL-3906 is encased in rubber-like waterproof material and the controls are all recessed -- almost like a piece of military equipment. The colour is appropriately camouflage green.
This dinky unit belts out 3 watts of sound and the Bluetooth and NFC connection technologies let you pair it wirelessly to your mobile phone, music player or tablet.
Compellingly priced at Rs 1100.
