Gadget Ogling: A Speaker-Stuffed Tablet Case

Tablet Tremors

ASUS is on a crusade to end the scourge of tablets with terrible sound. Its new ZenPad 8.0 has an interchangeable cover design that allows users several functional options. One is the Audio Cover (pictured above), which bumps up sound quality by tucking a 5.1 surround-sound system inside.

With six speakers, including a subwoofer, the Audio Cover promises to significantly improve the tablet experience of watching video and listening to music.

However, unless your tablet constitutes your home entertainment system, I can't quite understand the point. Sure, it might come in handy if you're spending some time with friends in the park and streaming from Spotify, but I wouldn't want to use this to watch Jurassic Park at any type of volume on the train.

Still, it's a nice idea, and it's good to see some genuine innovation in tablet covers beyond protection and external charging.
