Hands on and pictures of Outdoor Technology’s Turtle Shell wireless boombox

We got a chance to check out another exciting product from Outdoor Technology. The adorably named Turtle Shell from OT is a boombox that comes with a host a features; chief among them are its wireless capability and rugged yet elegant turtle-shell like design.

While still just a prototype, and more than likely a year off, the OT Turtle Shell allows users to pair the Turtle Shell with virtually any Bluetooth enabled device such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. It also features a built-in mic for speaker and phone functionality.

The Turtle Shell is both shock and dust proof and comes with OT flexible cord allowing you wrap it around a set of handlebars, a tree limb, or just your desk. The tiny device is designed to fit in the palm of your hand, but while it might be small, it’s built to provide some big sound.

Specs wise, Outdoor Technology tells us that its Turtle Shell boombox will be capable of nine to ten hours of High-Fi sound or talk time and talk time as well as 240 hours of standby time. It utilizes a mini USB to USB charge cable, has a range of 33 feet to any Bluetooth device, and a 3.5 millimeter jack for added plug-in functionality.

Pricing isn’t official yet, but Outdoor Technology is aiming for around $129. Be sure to check out our preview of Outdoor Technology’s equally cool Rocks touch interface earbuds.
