An FCC filing has revealed a possible new AirPlay offering from the mighty Bose. A product label from the FCC site identifies the forthcoming Bose SoundLink® Air digital music system as including Wi-Fi connectivity (and hopefully that “Air” in the name indicates a willingness to play nice with all things “AirPlay”).
Why is this significant? Bose is well known for its ability to coerce amazingly accurate, room-filling sound from the smallest set of speakers, but to date, its wireless offerings have been centered around Bluetooth. An AirPlay-enabled speaker from Bose would undoubtedly be a formidable new contender in the fast-growing AirPlay arena. We’re looking forward to learning more about this one soon. [source: engadget]
