Motorola Mobile and Sol Republic roll out Deck Bluetooth speaker set
At today's Google event, Motorola Mobile and Sol Republic have unveiled the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Deck</a> portable Bluetooth wireless speaker. The device features 360-degree "full sound," 300-foot wireless range and Heist Mode, which allows up to five friends to simultaneously pair to the speaker set and take turns controlling the music.<br />
<br />
Powered by R2 Sound Engines, Deck delivers bass in a slim, portable design. The large R2 Sound Engines combined with a bass port, high-watt amplifier, and a huge lithium-ion battery for power offer what the companies call "bigger sound than you would expect from a pocket-sized speaker."<br />
<br />
Heist mode allows users to share their favorite track or change it up with a different sound. To show who has control of Deck, a backlit logo on the speaker changes colors as different users "heist" the speaker set with a new song.<br />
<br />
The speaker set includes speakerphone functionality, an "outdoor mode" giving the unit amplified sounds, a stereo-in and stereo-out jack allowing users to daisy chain multiple units together. Primary connectivity is provided with near-field communication (NFC) or Bluetooth pairing. <br />
<br />
Preorders have begun on the unit, for $199. The first shipments are expected to arrive in the beginning of September.

This looks like a cool product. How does it compare to the Magic Sound Box?
