Did you ever look at a Jawbone JAMBOX and wish that it was bigger? If so, your wishes have been answered with the BIG JAMBOX, everything you loved about the original but at a much larger size. (10.1 x 3.2 x 3.7 inches and 2.7lbs to be exact!)
Jawbone released the JAMBOX last year to widespread -- and well deserved -- acclaim and they haven't slowed down since, adding new colors and new features to an already exciting line. The great thing about JAMBOX is simply this -- it sounds fantastic. It sounds so good you forget it's Bluetooth. It sounds so good you double check to make sure it really is Bluetooth.

Japanese news site Macotakara (translated) reported last week that Apple has supplied Made For iPhone accessory makers with a new authentication chip using Bluetooth 4.0 and the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol, making it easier to setup and authenticate devices for use over the dock connector and Bluetooth with a specific push for fitness and health-related apps.
The highly anticipated iPhone fitness accessory, Jawbone Up, will be available this Sunday. A colorful wrist band with built in sensors and a vibration motor, Jawbone Up is designed to track your eating, sleeping and exercise patterns.
The Jawbone JAMBOX is my favorite audio gadget of the last year and one of my favorite gadgets in general. To put it in Aladdin-esque terms, it's cosmically powerful sound... jammed into an itty bitty box.
