Creative has just announced a new handheld Bluetooth speaker called the Muvo mini.

The Muvo mini isn't just a speaker though. It has a built-in microphone too making it a conference call speakerphone. But it's not all business as the Muvo mini is made for poolside partying too thanks to its IP66 rating. This means its water and dust resistant. It probably won't survive a dunk in the pool but practicing your dive bomb technique next to it won't splash it into oblivion.

The Muvo mini is all about being small and portable but that doesn't mean it won't last. Creative claims it will pump out tunes for a good 10 hours before you need to charge the 2200mAh battery back to full power via micro USB.

Talking of ports the Muvo mini comes with a 3.5mm aux-in allowing you to wire anything to it. But for more modern kit it's as easy as a tap of your mobile thanks to NFC recognition. The Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity uses A2DP smarts for the best quality connection.

The Creative Muvo mini is available now for £50 and comes in black, white, red and blue variants.
