iHome unveils iBT4 Bluetooth boombox with FM receiver

With summer almost here, people all around the country are gearing up for warmer weather and spending time with friends and family at the beach, lake, or poolside. One thing that most people no matter where they're going want to have handy is music. The easiest way to have your favorite music with you everywhere you go is by using digital tunes on your smartphone or MP3 player and a portable Bluetooth speaker of some sort.

iHome has announced a new Bluetooth music playback device called the iBT4. The device is a Bluetooth wireless rechargeable boombox that has an integrated FM radio receiver. The Bluetooth connectivity supports just about any Bluetooth enabled device out there including the iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and more.

The Bluetooth connectivity should have the typical wireless range of 33 feet. The audio device has Reson8 speaker chambers designed for clarity, depth, and power in your music playback. Power comes from an internal lithium-ion battery pack that's good for up to seven hours of use per charge.

If you get tired of listening to your own music, the device also has a telescoping antenna and a built-in FM radio tuner. The Bluetooth boombox also ships with an AC adapter allowing you to plug in the wall when an outlet is available for continuous listening. The Bluetooth stereo system will support devices that don't have integrated Bluetooth via a 3.5 mm input port. The iBT4 is available in black, purple, or green for $99.99.
