Q-voix is an audio accessory for portable devices like MP3 players, laptop PCs, etc. Its uniqueness is that when held in your hand, it does not make any real sound, but when you place it on a hard flat surface (like a table or desk) it turns that surface into a “speaker.” The sound quality is very good, with a wide frequency range caused by surface resonance. The device also includes an inbuilt microphone for conference calls using mobile phones or for Internet chatting using VoIP software like Skype or MSN. Q-voix features a fresh, cubic design with a choice of different colors for the user interface; its compact size and built-in rechargeable battery make it highly portable. The challenge is to appeal to both fashionable younger consumers and practical business travelers.
