Elegiant Portable Outdoor NFC Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

The Elegiant wireless Bluetooth/NFC speaker is a new device that will be available on Amazon on January 16, 2016.  It will sell for $34.95 and will be available in 4 colors (Army Green, Blue, Red and Black).  What makes this stand out from the rest of the portable speakers is that it’s Waterproof, Dustproof and Shockproof.  So you can take it with you practically everywhere without the fear of ruining the device.

It’s compatible to all kinds of smartphones, music devices and e-readers.  I also like that Elegiant doesn’t only let you play your music, but can also be used as a Portable charger. It comes with a USB cable that you can use for your Android devices and for Iphones, Ipads and Ipods, you can just use your own lightning cable.

Everyone is raving about it on Amazon.  According to the reviews, it has the best sound quality among other portable speakers and is also very easy to pair with other devices.

A Portable Echo Speaker

echoI’m sure that you’ve already heard about the fifth best-selling electronic product on, the Echo, which is now being sold on the  site for $179.99.

Echo is a hands-free, voice activated device that can play all your music from Prime Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn and even read your Kindle books aloud.  Its dimensions are 9.25 x 3.27 x 3.27 inches which can be pretty big for a wireless speaker.

So if you are looking for something that is more portable, then get excited because Amazon is planning to release a cheaper and smaller version that could fit comfortably in the palm of your hand a.k.a Echo’s little sibling, the Amazon Fox.

Prime special offer, Audible 3-month free trial

Good news Amazon Prime members!  You can now get a free 3-month trial subscription.  Audible is an Amazon company that offers digital audiobooks and audio versions of magazines and newspapers.  Choose from over 200,000 audiobooks and have 1 free  download each month.  Once your 3-month trial expires, you can get Audible for only $14.95/month.

Audiobooks are convenient for those who want to “read” a book but don’t have the time to actually sit and read it. Like a lot of other folks, I “read” audio books when I’m driving. This is definitely worth a try because the standard Audible trial subscription is only 1 month and this one gives you an additional 2.
