Altec Lansing speaker system for iPhone
Altec Lansing, maker of all things for iPods, is releasing the T612 speaker system for the iPhone. It features clear sound for music and multimedia, while also providing iPhone incoming call support. If a call comes in while music is playing, the iPhone gives priority to the call by pausing the music. Once the call is completed, the iPhone is re-docked in the T612 and the music resumes playing where it left off - same song and place. (It works with all iPods as well.) What's more, you don't get feedback because of the internal GSM shielding which keep its speakers from picking up potential intermittent noises emitted by the iPhone or other mobile devices. The handsome T612 features powerful neodymium speakers and XdB™ bass-enhancement technology for exceptionally rich audio reproduction from a reasonably small system.
At their booth at CES, the product manager for the device proudly explained that that there is "a lot of competition" coming, but Altec is first to the market. A bit pricey at $199, but if you love your iPhone as much as I love mine, you'll fork it over come February.
