If you are looking for a better sound system for portable devices that are usually desk bound, then the Poly Sync 20 Speakerphone is for you.
The limited-edition pink version of the Poly Sync 20 was the unit I tested. The pink device has the same features as the gray fabric and frame version, but it's pink.
The standard-color gray device pictured above will not be missed, despite the unique pink fabric covering on the limited edition topside.
Poly will donate $10 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for every Pink Sync unit sold. That is a good incentive to buy this product.
The gray and pink editions are on the market. Depending on special offers and optional features, costs range from $89.95 to 149.95.
