A Look At Sony’s New Bluetooth Speaker

Sony BSP60Sony has recently unveiled its new BSP60 Smart Bluetooth speaker, a portable, fist-sized device that boasts voice control options.

A presumed competitor to Amazon’s Echo Smart Speaker, which was unveiled towards the end of last year, the Sony BSP60 sports many of the same voice control features of the first device. Uttering the activation phrase “okay speaker” allows the user to play music, set reminders and alarms, and look up information such as the weather forecast. The device’s built-in speaker also allows the possibility of making conference calls.

The release for the Sony BSP60 is slated for Q2 2015, with recommended retail prices currently planned at $355 and €299.
