Perfect travel speakers – the x-mini

image I was introduced to these speakers by a friend who, like me, has a keen interest in all things gadgety. I have tried a number of portable speakers in my time but most are either too big or the sound is too weak. The x-mini gets round both of these problems in a neat way.

The unit itself is tiny – certainly small enough to fit neatly in the palm of your hand and therefore in anyone’s travelling kit bag. The real neat bit though is how it gets more bass. By twisting the unit it opens out to reveal a concertinaed middle section that delivers a more rich sound. Also contained within the small body is a rechargeable battery and the whole package comes with a charge cable and a carrying case.

Best place to get one from is the Nokia store at Heathrow Terminal 5 but if you can’t get one there they are available from Amazon.
