Smartphones and tablets are phenomenal portable media devices, especially if you've plugged in a good pair of headphones. Relying on the built-in speakers might get by in a pinch, but they're not going to single-handedly provide background music for a party without a little bit of help. If you're in that situation, now might be a good time to check out the online clearance section of Best Buy, where we've found two speakers that have been drastically reduced in price: the Philips Fidelio AS111/37 speaker dock and the Shoqbox SB7200 portable Bluetooth speaker.
If you're in the market for an Android speaker dock for your phone, then you'll want to pay attention right about now. The Philips AS351, the little brother of the AS851 that we reviewed and loved a few months ago, is currently available for $95 on Amazon with a $20 coupon that takes the price down to just $75. That's over 40% off the list price of $129.99.
Like its more expensive counterpart, the AS351 comes with Bluetooth functionality built-in which allows you to listen to your music without having to physically dock your phone, although there's no remote control with this model so you'll have to change any volume settings on the unit itself.
