Creative Japan today took the wraps off this cool portable speaker for the 2G iPod Shuffle. The compact speaker goes great with the brushed metal finish of Apple’s tiny media player.
Just dock your 2G Shuffle on the top of Creative’s new Travelsound i50, snap on the clear protective cover and you’re ready to go. The compact speaker has a nifty carabiner-like loop that lets you clip the speaker onto your backpack or belt loop. Plus, it’s got a built-in rechargeable battery which can be charged through a USB port.
The Travelsound i50 is currently available in Japan for ¥7,980 (about $69). A release date and pricing for other countries hasn’t been announced yet, but given Creative’s worldwide track record, it’s only a matter of time.
