The truth is that the device with operating systems with Android are behind other devices when it comes to peripherals . Practically finding speakers with, android base is very complicated compared with Apple, for example. There are synchronized bases, and even in Nexus 7 or Galaxy Nexus devices, there are pogo bases , so, bases that take advantage of the side pins of this devices to load and remove audio, but have no speakers, and also its price is almost prohibitive.
The problem is that most Android devices only have one microUSB connector for which you can only download or transfer data, never audio, therefore the difficulties of finding bases and speakers.
One company launching bases for Android is Phillips, with its system Fidelio. Bases with speakers and digital clock to charge the device trough microUSB and transmits audio via bluetooth. It works under a free application of Phillips that can be found on Google Play .
Apart from the Phillips option, that for me is simple and expensive, the rest of us with Android devices can opt for traveling speakers, cable or bluetooth, more affordable.
Today we will analyze AEG LB 4713 BT speakers, speakers with bluetooth connection by which we can play all the music stored on our devices.
