Jawbone’s “Big Jambox” Nears Release

First spotted via FCC filings in February, it looks as if Jawbone’s unannounced Big Jambox is nearing release. Presumably the Big Jambox is exactly that – a larger version of the original, that continues to provide both Bluetooth speaker and speakerphone capabilities. Best Buy’s cached product listing reveals Jawbone’s update clocks in at $299.99 and 2.8 lbs. While I appreciate my orinal Jambox as a mobile accessory, at this size and weight, without AirPlay capabilities, I’d probably opt for another Sonos Play:3 in lieu of a Big Jambox. However, if you find yourself more intrigued than I, it shouldn’t be too long before a release date and color palette will be formally announced.

(Thanks, Adam!)

  1. From Best Buy’s spec page: 3.25″ x 3.75″ x 10.25″ versus 1.6″ x 2.8″ x 6″, 12 ounces for the original, which I assume will continue to be sold.

  2. Sonos all the way

  3. iLounge at least seems quite enamored of the SoundFreaq Sound Kick:

    If I was going to step up to a larger device like this, I suspspect the Sound Kick would win the debate at $100.

    And that’s from somebody who’s pretty happy with his Blue Jambox…

  4. I’d agree – Sonos is the way to go

  5. I will probably totaly buy this when it comes out. My room mate has the smaller jawbone and I love the sound and design. My only complaint is that it is not loud enough for bigger rooms or hearing when outside. So if this larger versioin packs more volume- I’m buying it.
