Sony MS500 Bluetooth wireless speaker designed for the great outdoors

Sony Ericsson MS500

The latest gadget from Sony Ericsson is the MS500, a wireless, Bluetooth outdoor speaker that allows you to enjoy the music on your phone out in the wilds.

Available in "stylish" orange and black, or "chic" white and pink, the MS500 is apparently "the ultimate accessory for any dedicated pop rocker or dancing queen". Rules us out then.

The MS500 is designed for outdoor use, with a splash-proof shell and handy strap, which can be attached to a bag, clothing or your wrist.

It's powered by two AA batteries, which should last up to five hours, and links to your mobile phone via Bluetooth.
