Bose 'Chihuahua' could take on AirPlay or Sonos

Bose Chihuahua may ship next week

A combination of an event invite and a leak has given a clue as to Bose plans for a new wireless audio system. Called the "Chihuahua" so far, it would be an "ultra small" MP3 player speaker docking station. Best Buy details scraped by This is my next would have it sit in a display next week meant to show the Bose SoundLink wireless system, hinting that the dock or an adapter could push audio out to Bose hardware much like Sonos or possibly AirPlay.

The system is expected to bounce sound off nearby objects for better bass and volume. Its description makes it sound like a system with a passive bass radiator similar to the Sonos Play:3.

Bose is due to hold a media event on September 15, the same week as the Best Buy display goes live, hinting that whatever Chihuahua may be will be at the event and ship the same week. The only clues in the event invite are a call to "hold the phone" and "hear what happens," implying it will be a smartphone-oriented speaker system.
