Creative adds NFC speakers

Creative Airwave HD portable speaker with NFC

Creative Technology has announced two portable NFC wireless speakers, the Creative Airwave and Creative Airwave HD, that allow users to stream music via Bluetooth from their favourite device.

Available in a range of colours, the speakers can be paired quickly with another NFC device by tapping the two together. Alternatively a connection can be made by traditional Bluetooth pairing or a generic aux-in input. A built-in microphone allows the units to be used as a speakerphone.

The speakers will arrive at retail in June 2013, with the Airwave priced at £89.99 (US$137) and the Airwave HD, which sports a better amplifier and support for pairing with two Bluetooth devices simultaneously, weighing in at £129.99 ($198).
