Philips’ New Range of Android Speakers

Many people understand Androids biggest problem is its ability to connect amongst other devices, eg. speakers, alarm clocks etc. To an extent, I couldn’t agree more. Every once in a while we see a new image or video of a dock, but the way the manufacturer maneuvers it to work with every Android device is still questionable.

Philips however, got it right on queue with this one! The Philips Fidelio speakers, announced way back in September, is what every Android user needs.

Available in three separate shapes and sizes, the Philips Fidelio speakers can maneuver the Micro USB port, Left to Right, Forward and Back, as well as a full 360 rotation to fit on any Android device. Simple enough solution… have a look at the video below to see how it works.

The high end model, the AS851, shown below, is the greatest sounding device out of all the models.

The mid range model, The AS351, shown below, is a little more compact in size, but doesn’t pack the punch that the high end model will.

The last, but definitely not least, is probably the most crucial design from a marketing aspect. I have a Android, and I have an alarm clock, I want both in one! I don’t think it’s too much to ask in this day and age. Thank you Philips, you have answered my prayers!

All I know is, I’ve wanted one of these for quite some time now, and until I got one, using my Galaxy S 2 was always going to be tarnished at least a little. Not being able to do as you please with a device that calls itself ‘A free OS, with an open Eco system” is a little contradicting, if I do say so myself. This is where Apple has the upper hand, with standardised fittings across all their device.
