Microsoft Canada: Jabra Solemate Mini Bluetooth Speaker Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping
Microsoft Canada has discounted the lovely little Jabra Solemate Mini Bluetooth Speaker from $99.99 down to $59.99 with free shipping.
I could not find this speaker at many Canadian retailers, but I did find it at a few. Here is what you would pay at the competition for this mighty little speaker:
- $69.99 @ Dell Canada
- $78.92 @ Amazon Canada
- $87.99 + $7.60 shipping @ Newegg Canada now
- $99.98 @ Best Buy Canada
All the Jabra mini speakers I found at other retailers are in red (and one yellow one) - Microsoft Canada appears to be the only one in Canada to sell the black speaker. I think the black speaker looks the best and I would certainly choose it over the red.
Why do you need the Jabra? Well, this is your do it all sort of speaker. The mini device is small enough to go anywhere and yet packs big sound with two powerful speakers. Eight hours of play time will give you a good charge while you are out seeing the world or relaxing in a hotel room or outside having a BBQ. The Jabra Solemate is dust and splash resistant. That does not mean you can drop it in the pool (do not do that) but it can withstand the usual pumps and scrapes of travelling. This is possible because the speaker has an all-over rubber coating for protection.
The mini Jabra connects to any device via Bluetooth or NFC if you have it. You can control the speaker from your phone even when you are sitting across the room. Just hook up your iPhone or android for endless music on the go. I think this is a sweet little speaker with a lot of promise.
While there are many wireless speakers produced these days, my travel speaker must always be able to withstand a little rough treatment. That is why I really like the rubber coating on this one. If you accidentally drop the speaker, or it gets shoved into your backpack with a leaky water bottle... there is a much better chance this speaker will survive and live to blare music another day.
As with all orders at Microsoft Canada, the speaker receives free shipping to your home.
