Sony Ericsson is set to launch a stylish new accessory in the form of the MS430 Media Speaker Stand. As the name suggests, the MS430 is an external speaker that is designed to be plugged into your phone (all Xperia models are supported) and play music or video without having to be tethered to the handset.
When plugged into a handsets 3.5mm jack, the speaker acts as a stand, which means you don’t awkwardly have to prop up the phone. The device itself is clad in aluminium that gives it a premium look. It’s also reasonably pocketable weighing in at 67g and no bigger than 11cm in length. The speaker is powered via 3 x AAA batteries. At this point, we have no idea what kind of sound it will generate, but we hope to get a hands-on as soon as it hits the market. Click through for some promo videos and pictures of the MS430.
