CES 2013: Panasonic announces wireless speaker stand for tablets

Panasonic has unveiled the SC-NP10 wireless speaker stand for tablet devices. The unit is designed to accept any tablet device and position it at an optimal viewing angle for watching video, while greatly enhancing the sound quality.

Because the SC-NP10 isn’t a physical dock, it isn’t limited by docking ports or connectors. Instead the speaker connects to the tablet via Bluetooth. The Bluetooth connection also means that you’re not limited to tablets, and could just as easily stream music from the phone in your pocket.

The SC-NP10 is a 2.1-channel system, so the integrated subwoofer should provide significantly improved bass response over any tablet’s internal speakers. The speaker is small and light enough to be placed in any room in the house, and also makes for a safe place to leave your tablet when unattended.

There’s no word on pricing or availability yet, but we’ll be chasing a review sample when we land back in the UK.
