At the IFA in Berlin yesterday, Sony has announced an NFC enabled speaker that can connect with your phone to play directly from the device’s music library.
NFC smartphone owners need to tap their mobile devices against the speaker to connect via Bluetooth which can stream music.
When tapped again, the connection stops the music instantly.
The speaker is able to stream music from your phone anywhere in the house.
The One Touch function works instantly with Sony NFC smartphones, like the new Xperia T, also announced at the IFA conference.
Owners of other smartphones must download a Sony application to use the speaker.
Those with smartphones that do not have enabled NFC can still pair with the speaker, although not easily.
The SRS-BTM8 NFC speaker is expected by the end of September.
