Trust Mobile Phone Dock
Speaker docks for music phones carry an inherent risk that limits their appeal: as they are often tied to particular phone models, the commonplace act of replacing one's cellphone usually renders the speakers obsolete as well. A more future-proof means of broadcasting phone music is Trust's new Mobile Phone Sound Station. While explicitly compatible only with certain Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, and Sony-Ericsson phones, the Sound Station is capable of docking any of those handsets and is not just limited to playing audio. As with an iPod dock, it can recharge the battery of the attached phone and even synchronize data with a host PC. An auxiliary input jack is present for dedicated music players and other audio devices. Trust is shipping the speaker set now; pricing is unavailable.
