Creative intros entry-level portable BT speakers
Creative recently introduced its D200 and D100 Bluetooth speakers for mobile devices such as smartphones. The D200 is being described as a more affordable version of the ZiiSound D5 and gets 9W of sustained power for each of its two built-in speakers.
The Creative D100 is the entry level model with 2W for each of its two speakers. It can be had in black, pink, green or blue. Either gets a 3.5mm auxiliary input and can be either plugged in or powered by four AA batteries.
The high-quality apt-X codec is supported when an optional Creative iPod transmitter is ordered for about $61. This will result in higher quality sound than the standard A2DP Bluetooth connection.
The D200 will cost about $140 and the D100 about $92 when both arrive in stores in July. [via Pocket-Lint]
