Jensen iPod Clock
A third iPod speaker system unveiling was made today by Jensen, which demonstrated its new JiMS-200 iPod alarm clock. The system is unique for its concessions made to owners of smaller iPods. In contrast to most docks, the JiMS-200's Dock Connector can slide to the left to let iPod nanos dock with the stereo while remaining centered, Jensen notes. The JiMS-200 further adds a dedicated USB port away from the main dock which is meant to play audio directly from a first-generation iPod shuffle. Other uncommon addtions include an external FM antenna for improved reception and a retractable headphone cable to plug the system into external audio hardware. Jensen retails the unit for $80. A basic version without the USB port and fewer radio presets, the JiMS-190, is also available for $60. Click through for a photo of the clock in its optional black.
