Honey, they shrunk the Jambox!
Jawbone is out with its latest Jambox, and this one is its smallest yet: It's called the Mini Jambox (or an emphatic "MINI JAMBOX," officially), and it is noticeably smaller than both the first Jambox, introduced in 2011, and the Big Jambox, introduced in 2012. The Mini Jambox is both smaller in size (slimmer and shorter than the Jambox Classic) and in weight (9 ounces versus 12 ounces); Jambox hopes this size and weight difference will make it more attractive to customers looking for a wireless speaker they can bring anywhere.
The Mini Jambox will retail for $180 and goes on preorder today at the Jawbone website; they'll eventually make their way to Apple, AT&T, Best Buy, Target and Verizon stores. Unlike previous Jamboxes, the Mini will come with various color combinations and designs that can be chosen when you order.
