UE's mightily popular BOOM series of wireless speakers has just been updated to version 2. The UE BOOM 2 maintains the same form factor as the original BOOM that has been pacesetting on the portable wireless speaker scene for a while. The new BOOM 2 features tap control, where by giving it a light tap on top allows you to quickly pause or resume play and skip a track, and now comes in a variety of new colors, some more radical than the last time around and some more plain. I think it is pretty safe to say that you can find a color or color-and-graphics combination that suits your taste. The one we got for review is the rather funky "Tropical" variant in all its purple and orange goodness.
