Microsoft announces the new affordable Bang mini speaker by Coloud

Coloud Bang Mini Speaker

As well as announcing the new Lumia 530, Microsoft also unveiled a new Bang mini speaker joining the Coloud family of audio accessories. The portable, compact speaker is a rechargeable sound station that produces sound at an affordable price point – just €19 to be exact. An added bonus of this speaker is the choice of colors to match Lumia Windows Phones.

Unlike other portable speakers offered by Microsoft, the Bang mini – being an affordable option – connects to Windows Phones (or other devices) via the 3.5mm headphone jack. As noted above, it's rechargeable, lasting up to 8 hours on a single charge. Keep an eye out for the product to be made available in the next couple of weeks.

Perfect for enjoying some tunes through MixRadio this summer. Who's looking to pick one up?

Other than availability, the other problem is colour. Where is yellow? Does it mean that future Lumias won't have yellow anymore?

Yeah ! It will be there tomorrow on the first boat from China,get up early and go to the dock n•6and wait,so you will be the first to get it.

I did. It was a lot of fun but non-local commodities like phones and TVs were not especially cheap... I was disappointed after I bought a $2000 custom suit for $300... Thought I'd snag some tablets and phones and stuff really cheap and didn't get to.

I would try that option. But I would still need to pay taxes at high rates, I think? If I can have at least 2, I'll take them to my stores. :D

Coloud is solid for availability; I've bought headphones from them online no problem.  It's the Nokia accessories that were never available anywhere.

Same question... Does it offer any advantage over similarly prized Bluetooth portable speakers on Amazon with really good ratings and better battery life apart from the brand name?

I know this is off topic, but I would love to see the Lumia 930 release Stateside on ALL carriers! I know that won't happen, but one can wish.

True, I bought a "waterproof" Bluetooth speaker for 8 dollars sounds good for the size. Battery life is awful, but I leave I connected. Oh and it has a microphone too.

what about the speakers which have been on the nokia site ..announced with the 930 and still have the tittle coming soon...i want that..any news on that?

Nah...I still like my Bluetooth JAM...$35 and lasts just as long with rechargeable battery. Awesome sound.

Need an affordable decent Bluetooth portable speaker that don't sound like a tin can. Jam is ok but having one that can do speakerphone can't cost that much more and still have decent sound. Cheapest descent sounding one is about 80 bucks. I'm just to cheap and picky I guess.

Shame it doesn't drive power from the phone through the headphones jack, but I'm guessing its a bit better than your most basic of speakers.
Do the colours conform with past Lumia phones or is it only the recent scheme?

It would be great to have, but I don't think they will be bringed out before the end of the summer :(
