For those of you with Droids, iPods, iPhones, iPads or anything similar that are looking for a portable speaker to take with you so when you are in a hotel with the AC blazing or something, you can hear it louder than the external speaker...look no further!
My wife and I were on a trip where we were in the hotel and wanted to watch a TV show on the iPad. The external speaker is pretty decent on the iDevices unless other stuff is going on, in which case, it's hard to hear ****. Same thing with my Moto Droid although it really doesn't matter because I don't use it much anymore outside of tethering and basic phone stuff. Anyhow...
So I wanted to find a small, portable, inexpensive speaker to take with me on trips just in case this happens and I found a great one!
It's called the x-mini, it recharges via USB cable (so no switching AA batteries etc), is small, and sounds pretty damn good for a small, inexpensive speaker. It works collapsed but you can also twist it and it sort of pops open like an accordion which makes it sound better.
Here's some crappy quality pics:
Here's where you can find it for 30 bucks:
