JBL PlayUp Portable Wireless Speaker for Nokia Lumia hands-on

The JBL PlayUp Portable Wireless Speaker is set to take over from the Nokia Play 360 as the Bluetooth and NFC speaker of choice for anyone looking to stream music from their Nokia Lumia 920 or Nokia Lumia 820.

The JBL PlayUp Portable Wireless Speaker has been created in conjunction with JBL for the best audio experience around. It comes with Bluetooth on-board, so it can be used with any phone sporting Bluetooth.

However, it’s a perfect fit for the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 as it also comes with NFC built-in. So, all you need to do is tap the top of the speaker and it’ll sync automatically with your phone. What’s more, if you have an older Nokia C7 or Nokia 700 you’ll also be able to make the most of the NFC. 

We recently got a chance to play with the JBL PlayUp Portable Wireless Speaker and it’s a great sound from such a compact device. We really like the shape of the new speaker and that it follows the features of the Play 360 with a Power button 3.5mm audio jack and charger port.

The JBL PlayUp Portable Wireless Speaker is set to be made available in Cyan, White, Yellow and Black, so you’ll be able to pick one up to match your Nokia Lumia 920 or Nokia Lumia 820.
