Altec Lansing Creates iPod Dock With 8.5-inch Color LCD, 4-inch Sub
( Mobilemag ) - The recently announced Altec Lansing inMotion iMV712 is "an elegantly compact, all-inclusive iPod Video entertainment system that provides powerful, crystal-clear sound and sharp video in one." That is to say, in addition to the usual pair of 3-inch stereo speakers, the inMotion iMV712 also has a huge 8.5-inch high resolution color LCD mounted on the front. It's like a portable DVD player, only better.
Altec Lansing dock does come equipped with a four-inch subwoofer, so it'll certainly have a lot more thump than the average speaker dock. The audio is "heightened" by Altec Lansing SFX (Stereo Field Expander), a technology that makes the speakers sound further apart than they actually are.
The Altec Lansing inMotion iMV712 goes on sale this month with an asking price of $350.
