Elecom P100 iPod Dock
Japanese electronics maker Elecom has released its new ASP-P100 iPod dock as a combination synchronization tool and stand-alone speaker system. Only slightly taller than a standard Universal Dock, the P100 includes a 2-watt stereo speaker system that can play music directly from the iPod whether plugged into a an AC outlet or using four AAA batteries. The dock can also charge the player when plugged into AC power or when synchronized with a Mac or Windows PC through USB. The P100 supports all dockable iPods and ships in black or white. Elecom says the dock will be available soon in Japan for $54 US.
