Mead Binder With Speakers
Mead has just unveiled a new binder under its Five Star label that comes equipped with speakers. The vinyl-covered book includes its own headphone input jack and stereo satellites, allowing the iPod or most any portable device to play music without intruding into studying space or requiring headphones. Battery life and the strength of the speakers isn't yet revealed.
A line of school backpacks also containing speakers is also planned, the company says. Pricing is unavailable, but the two audio-equipped devices will launch in time for the return to school this September. [via My: Tech News Blog]
