iHome iP99 clock radio for iPhone


Since deciding that its SIM card would be more useful in a 3G-capable phone, I've been keeping my iPhone next to my pillow to use as a clock (I don't sleep with my contacts on, so I literally can't see the clock on my husband's end table) and late-night/early-morning email and Internet device. Even though blogging allows me to wake up whenever I want to, there are still some days when I need the iPhone's alarm function to get me out of bed. On such days, I often end up waking up earlier than necessary because of my anxiety about sleeping through the alarm, which I fear could be too easily muffled beneath my pillow or knocked to the floor.

That's why I think I might like to preorder the iHome iP99 clock radio ($150) unveiled this week by Brookstone. With shipments beginning the week of May 28th, the iP99 is unique in that it allows the iPhone to continue to accept phone calls while docked, charging, and playing music. The feature wouldn't be useful for my SIM-less iPhone, sure, but I could still use the remote control, alarm buzzer, and AM/FM radio.
