CES is still technically a full week away, but who can blame a startup for trying to get ahead of the curve? GGMM is using the mid-holiday lull to show off a wireless speaker that shares its name with another prominent technology conference.
The E3 is compelling as far as portable speakers go, packing some interesting functionality into a compact body. The headline here is the device’s ability to stream music via cloud-based services like Pandora, Spotify and the like without needing to be connected directly to a mobile device.
Naturally, the functionality is increased when the speaker/alarm clock/device charger is connected directly to an Android or iOS handset. Using the company’s proprietary app, users can create customizable presets and take turns playing music through different devices.
The E3 connects via AUX or Bluetooth and features two 2.5-inch speakers and a built-in bass booster. It’ll be making its debut at CES next week and will be landing on Kickstarter later in the year.
