Mohu is pretty well known for making over-the-air HD antennas. However, it’s not just because people love free TV (although they do). It’s because Mohu is making: OTA HD antennas that don’t really look like OTA HD antennas. The company knows how to design a nice looking antenna. Now, can you imagine how they could apply those design skills: to a wireless speaker?
You can stop imagining. The company just debuted the Mohu BeBox wireless speaker. It sort of looks like your typical wireless speaker, but it isn’t your typical wireless speaker. The BeBox is actually a wireless speaker with a built-in Android tablet.
Having that perk allows users to stream music apps without Bluetooth or WiFi. However, if you like: that sort of thing, it is an: option since the BeBox has support for both wireless technologies.: That said, you can also skip the streaming and just: load music files right to the speaker. It’s what the company calls “a self-contained music experience.”
If you’re looking to take the BeBox on the go, it does boast 8 hours of battery life. That should be enough for the party. Speaking of which, that tablet allows you to share music with friends and family, without having to be tethered to the box. Again, it’s an option. Overall, the: unit seems ready to connect to almost anything, since it has a 3.5mm jack, a USB port, and an SD card slot.
The actual BeBox wireless speaker is ready to rock, thanks to five amplifiers and a 6-inch long-throw woofer. If you check out the video below, it does look: like a bit of a beast, so: you probably don’t have to worry about anyone walking off with it at a party.
And that’s a good thing, because the BeBox wireless speaker isn’t cheap. Mohu is currently taking pre-orders for the BeBox, priced at $449. Just know that once it ships, that price will go up $50.
