The Sony Sound Mug Plays Music But Doesn't Hold Your Morning Joe

The new Sony Sound Mug is a portable speaker that sits comfortably in your car's cup holder; unfortunately, that's all it does. While the Sound Mug looks like a convenient coffee thermos, it isn't.

While the Sony Sound Mug would be convenient for times when you want to share your playlists with others, why Sony wouldn't think of taking advantage of what would be a convenient 2-in-1 product is beyond me. The speaker will retail for $220 in Japan.
