At the end of January, the German based “Industrie Forum Design” (iF), one of the most renowned international design associations, announced its results for the 2014 iF Product-Design Awards. Here at Rapoo we are immensely honored, proud and happy to be amongst the winners for the third consecutive year. This year’s winner, the Bluetooth Portable NFC Speaker A600 follows a proud tradition of award-winning Rapoo products - such as the E6300 Bluetooth Keyboard, the E9070 and E9080 2.4G Wireless Keyboards (iF Design Award 2012) and the Wireless Ultra-Slim Touch Keyboard E9270P (iF Design Award 2013) - and was selected by the jury from 3,249 entries. The jury considered criteria such as design quality, finish, choice of materials, degree of innovation, environmental impact, functionality, ergonomics, visualisation of intended use, safety, brand value and branding, and aspects of universal design. Our winner: the A600 - Bluetooth 4.0 Portable Speaker with the latest NFC technology
One of the A600’s most prominent features is NFC (Near Field Communication).This new technology simplifies the process of pairing Bluetooth devices: just hold the Bluetooth device to the speaker and the connection is established automatically. If the Bluetooth function on the device is turned off, no problem – the speaker will activate it. In addition, the latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology enables wireless audio transmission with an amazing sound quality from any smartphone, tablet, notebook or any other Bluetooth-enabled device. This technology offers the most reliable wireless transmission with a range of up to 10m and a 360° coverage for the best audio-experience without restrictions. Compact eye-catcher made of brushed aluminum
Due to its high-grade, brushed-aluminum enclosure, the Rapoo A600 looks impressive and sets itself apart from the competition. The enclosure, with its retro, minimalist design, not only gives the speaker a nice quality weight, it also forms the casing of the actual speaker unit which is available in 5 stylish colors. The speaker has enough power for more than 10 hours of uninterrupted music pleasure, due to its environmentally friendly, rechargeable Li-ion battery. This endurance combined with the compact size of 125x73x51.5mm and the rugged aluminum casing, make the A600 the ideal accessory for all smartphones and tablets.
Compatible with all popular Bluetooth devices The A600 works with all popular Android, iOS and Windows devices, tablets, MP3 players, MP4 players, notebooks, portable game consoles, and all other Bluetooth-enabled devices. And due to its Dual-Mode function this versatile marvel of sound also works with devices that do not have Bluetooth as it can be connected to almost any audio source via its 3.5mm jack.
