GEAR4 has launched the StreetParty III, its newest portable speaker for iPods and other MP3 players.

With a "slim yet robust" design, and the ability to fold flat, the III is designed for portability while its £29.99 price tag places it at the affordable end of the market.

The speaker can be powered either via the included AC adapter, which charges up iPods at the same time, or by 4 AA batteries for out and about use.

Compatible with all dock connecting iPod models, there's also a line in port and 3.5mm audio cable are also included for use with other MP3 players or audio devices.
