We’re always seeing hardware leaks these days, the reality is it’s just too easy on most sites. If you’ve got a mobile phone in reach, then you’ve got a way to acquire information. Seemingly no company is exempt from this with new hardware from Sonos already “out there” thanks to an article at The Verge a couple of days ago. The information — FCC identifies the new hardware as a portable speaker, competing with the likes of JBL and the UE Boom.
It measures 6.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 inches and weighs around a pound. It will come with a USB charging cable, and a wireless charging dock will be sold separately for $49. Like many of the company’s other speakers, the Sonos Roam will be available in either black or white.
The tease that Sonos sent out, lines up very well with the information obtained by The Verge. Noting something “not so big” is coming and the image depicting an outdoor (requiring portability) activity going on. Information also points to a March 9th announcement with April shipping. Once we know more, we’ll publish the official details of the device and chase down Aussie pricing and availability.
