Ad Dugdale from Gizmodo writes:

Sound quality isn’t great and the 4.7-inch droid connects via a 3.5-mm audio cable (USB connection is, as yet, unconfirmed). Each speaker costs $20 (so order two if you want a pair) and it comes in red or blue

These 12cm tall models can now be preordered from National Console Suppurt Inc.
