Streaming speaker has built-in Android touchscreen

Auris launched a Kickstarter campaign for a portable, Android-based Wily streaming media player with a 7-inch touchscreen, 90dB speakers, WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI, and a webcam.

Auris, which already sells an $80 Skye WiFi music receiver and a $50 FreeDa Bluetooth receiver, is now prepping an Android 4.2.2-based portable combination speaker and media-streamer called Wily. The Wily device is launching today on Kickstarter with pledges set at $149 for the 8GB version and $168 for the 16GB model, and will eventually move to a retail price of $239 and $269, respectively, once the funding round is over. The devices are set to ship in June.
