    What's New, What's Hot: August 2012

    What's New What's Hot is Travel Weekly's look at useful and fun travel gadgets, edited by Joe Rosen. This month, we feature a roundup of Bluetooth portable speakers. First up, the HMD Jam. Resembling a jam jar that you could find on the shelves of your neighborhood convenience store, this colorful device produces surprisingly good sound for its size and weight.

    Heftier than its popular predecessor the original Jambox by Jawbone, the Big Jambox can be carried in one hand (it weighs 2.7 pounds), produces a rich and true sound, and offers up to 15 hours of continuous play on a single charge. It comes with a built-in microphone for video chats. Eight rubber feet keep it stable.

    Promoted as the first water-resistant Bluetooth speaker, the rugged G-Go is powered by four AA batteries that are good for eight hours, which means it will never run out of juice as long as you keep enough batteries on hand. Great for beach outings and the like, the G-Go weighs less than 3 pounds and has an integrated handle.

    Brookstone carries this 10-ouncer, which offers excellent sound quality for the price.

    Very much like the G-Go, the AR Portable is weather-resistant, has a built-in handle and is powered by AA batteries (in this case six). It offers storage space for most mobile devices while they are directly connected through the 3.5 mm jack provided for non-Bluetooth devices (all the units have one). In addition, the speaker's exterior can be customized with pro and college team logos as well as personal photos.

    And if speakers aren't on your shopping list this month, some other items to consider include the Knomo Saxby Messenger Bag. This handsome laptop carrier comes in two sizes: the new mini for tablets and 11-inch laptops as well as the medium for 15-inchers or less. Particularly arresting is the medium Saxby with a shiny navy exterior, leather trim and nickel hardware.
