The House of Marley announced today that it was entering smartphone space with Google Assistant's Get Together Mini.
The wizard, which was announced at CES event in Las Vegas, looks genuinely beautiful, and is something you probably would not mind having sitting at the kitchen table. According to the manufacturer, it was built with sustainability in mind, combining bamboo and recyclable aluminum with a fabric that mixes organic cotton, hemp and recycled rPET plastics.
This is in line with what we've seen from other House of Marley speakers in the past. The company is known for its heavy use of natural materials in its audio equipment. Although Reggae-inspired aesthetics may not be to everybody's taste, it certainly stands out among a crowd of generic-looking black speakers.
As you might expect from a Google-centric speaker, Get Together Mini comes with Google Cast integration for multi-room audio playback. Both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are present, and the speaker also comes with the USB power output, allowing it to function as a power bank.
When the Get Together Mini starts shipping in August 2019, it will sell for $ 199.99 or for £ 199.99 in the UK. This is a step above the current Get Together Mini, which is sold for about half of that, but does not have Google Assistant support.
And before signing, I would like to ask a question. Do you know how Bob Marley likes his donuts?
Take it? With congestion.
Look, I'm not saying that I wrote this article purely so I could make that joke. This would obviously really childish and unprofessional. I'm just saying it looks like this.
