CUBEDGE has just made life a little easier for buyers looking for a colorful Bluetooth speaker. The company has just rolled out a white version of its EDGE.sound. Hitting the market this summer, the EDGE.sound has Bluetooth 3.0 capability and is compatible with most all iOS devices, and even the new Bluetooth-enabled iPod nano. A built-in rechargeable battery offers 10-14 hours of wireless playback. And a microphone inside the speaker allows the EDGE.sound to be used as a speakerphone for phone conversations or FaceTime chats. The new color option will also feature a firmware update that should provider rich and loud sound. More advanced TPU housing in the white speaker should provide some more durability. The white version of the EDGE.Sound is available for $149, and can be purchased directly from CUBEDGE.com, Amazon, and eBay. With Apple’s fast shift from the ubiquitous 30-pin dock connector to the Lightning version in the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, I’ve gotten many more questions from users looking for a Bluetooth-compatible speaker. With a much lower price than AirPlay-compatible units, there are a number of strong options out there for users. While I haven’t gotten the chance to hear the EDGE.sound yet, it does look like a nice choice. If you’re interested in other Bluetooth speakers, take a look at my recent reviews of the Braven 625S, Philips Shoqbox SB7300, and Sound Kick from Soundfreaq.
