While it may not be shattering glasses with Ella Fitzgerald's voice any more, Memorex is still in the business of producing gear for your ears. It's outing three new Bluetooth speaker products to play nicely alongside your smartphone and tablet. If you're looking for a discount Jambox, the Travel Speaker offers six hours of battery life with the same built-in microphone and portability options for $90, while a FlexBeats Boombox, which runs on AA batteries, will cost $100. Finally, the company is launching an alarm clock that packs in four speakers, a USB connection and a digital FM radio which will also be yours exchange for $100. If you're looking for a neat way to destroy some tableware, there's PR for you after the break and all three will be available in "early 2013."
