The speaker supports Bluetooth mobile range of up to 33 metres. The UE Wonderboom weighs in at 425 grams, and has dimensions of 102mm height, 93.5mm diameter, and 140mm width.
Speaking at the launch, Ashok Jangra, Logitech, Cluster Category Head - India & SWA, said, "Wonderboom's basic proposition of being fuss free is designed for the user who is always-on-the-go and leads a very busy lifestyle. While it may look small, don’t be fooled by its size or price; this little beauty comes with surprisingly big sound and like its predecessors is virtually indestructible. Wonderboom is for users who are extremely passionate about music and always see it as a personal experience. We truly believe that this pint-sized, super-portable Bluetooth speaker is the answer for all personal music related needs."
