We’ve seen a ton of great tech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, no doubt about that. From various smartphones and accessories all the way to IoT products, electric cars and other tech gadgets. Well, it seems like more or less everyone managed to miss one product in particular during CES 2017, Motorola’s new speaker, the Cristofer Connect speaker which is a part of the Motorola Signature Series. This is the company’s collection of smart speakers which are inspired by iconic Motorola Designs.
Now, this is quite an interesting device which sports an interesting design, as you can see in the provided image, which is, unfortunately, the only image available at the moment. The speaker comes with the 1940s version of Motorola logo, a logo which was used on old televisions and home radios back in the day. This speaker seems to be made out of wood, and as you can see, it has a huge button on top of it, which we presume has multiple functions. This speaker is equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2 x 10-watt audio, and is compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa assistant. The Hubble Cloud app will be used to control this speaker, an app compatible with both Android and iOS platforms. This speaker will also support OTA (Over-the-Air) updates it seems. Now, according to the source, this speaker will become available during the second quarter of this year, and you’ll be able to purchase it through the motorolahome.com website, or through Amazon.
That is more or less all the info that we have when it comes to this speaker, at least for now. We do hope that more info will surface soon, as we really don’t know any of the speaker’s other features, nor how much will this speaker cost. Chances are it will become available in the US first, and we still don’t know whether it will become available outside of the country. In any case, do stay tuned for more info, we’ll do our best to report back as soon as some new content surfaces, as this speaker sure is interesting.
