Sony debuts iPod and iPhone compatible Boombox, CD Clock Radio ad Docking Speaker
- Sony is taking the wraps off three audio products that work with current dockable iPod® and iPhone™ devices.
The new CD clock radio (model ICF-CD3iP), boombox (model ZS-S4iP), and docking speaker (model SRS-GU10iP) let you enjoy music from either iPod or iPhone. All three products are part of the Made for iPod and Works with iPhone programs. Rise and Shine
The ICF-CD3iP device is Sony's first CD clock radio with a hidden dock for iPod and iPhone devices. It gives users multi-function flexibility that enables them to listen, wake and fall asleep to their iPhone or iPod, CDs or radio in the form of a small footprint.
Featuring a large, highly visible liquid crystal display, this clock radio charges both iPod and iPhone devices. It also includes a remote control that provides full access to the menu of music functions. It has a compact, vertical "floating" design that hides the docking station, offers CD R/RW playback, and has an AM/FM digital tuner. Tunes On The Go
For iPod and iPhone users who want to experience their music out loud, Sony is introducing its first boombox that works with both devices. The ZS-S4iP boombox adds iPhone compatibility and enhanced sound quality through its Mega Bass® Sound system.
The dock on this new boombox secures and charges your iPod or iPhone while on the go, and features a removable cover so you can directly control iPod touch and iPhone. A wireless remote allows full menu control for your CD, radio and the music function of iPod or iPhone. The unit also offers 20 AM and 10 FM radio presets.Dock Me Up
Sony's elegantly designed SRS-GU10iP docking speaker offers high quality audio and a piano black wood finish. Unlike most docking speakers for iPod players, this new speaker system is compatible with the newest generation of 3G iPhone devices as well.
The system also features bass sound and a remote commander for convenient access. It charges both the iPod and iPhone units, includes an auxiliary input, and supports AC operation.Pricing and Availability
The ZS-S4iP boombox will be available in October for about $100. The ICF-CD3iP CD clock radio will be available later this month for about $130. The SRS-GU10iP Sony iPhone/iPod docking speaker will be available this month for about $150.
All three products will be available at Sony Style® retail locations across Canada, online at www.sonystyle.ca and at authorized dealers nationwide.About Sony of Canada Ltd.
