Green House Folding iPod Speakers

Straight from Japan and into our hearts come the GH-SPA-225W (left) and the GH-SPA-225QW, two foldable speakers that are compatible with the iPod. Due later this month in Japan for "an open price" (does free count as a price?), the two models differ only in relative size and appearance. Both output 2.5 watts of Apple-approved sound and are powered by four dry cell batteries that should last about 24 continuous hours, depending on working conditions and the Google translation.

The speakers appear to be aimed at those who put a premium on mobility, rather than the other iPod speaker solutions that supposedly offer great sound for their (bigger) size. Anyone willing to go to Japan to 'em a try?
