There are a few products on the market sporting Near Field Audio technology - one from Voxx (formally AudioVox) and one from ifrogz (disappointingly not shaped at all like a frog). These two products basically look and operate exactly the same. They are platforms upon which you set your smartphone or portable media player (no wires needed). When you do, the box "magically" (this is their word, not ours) picks up the sound from the phone or player and amplifies it through its internal speakers. The devices are battery powered though they can be connected to the wall, are portable, and work with most phones or players. A truly manufacturer agnostic wireless playback dock? Now that's what we call interesting. Discuss "Near Field Audio Technology Overview" here. Read the Near Field Audio Technology Overview. Is this something you can see yourself using?
