IME Dock for Cars
As part of the official launch of Microsoft's Zune.net site that promotes the upcoming music player, Integrated Mobile Electronics on Thursday revealed what it claims is the first true universal music player dock for cars. Its IME Dock is designed to connect numerous media players -- such as the iPod, Sansa e200, and the Zune -- directly to a vehicle's entertainment system and plays its audio or video regardless of the device or file format. Connected players can also charge through the station and will play content even on systems with multiple LCDs, IME says. A remote control function is also expected. No pricing has been announced, though the company said it will start shipping the IME Dock in February.
