Intempo IDS-01b Speakers
Intempo on Friday began shipping its IDS-01b iPod speaker dock. As a contrast to normally conservative speaker colors, the new systems ship in metallic colors that match the brighter spectrum of the second-generation iPod nano. While intended for these flash players, however, the designs work with any dockable iPod as well as any device that can plug into a minijack input, such as the iPod shuffle. The 12-watt stereo system has a 3D bass audio enhancer and can also synchronize iPods by plugging into a Mac or Windows PC's USB port. Advanced MP3 Players is now selling the IDS-01b for £35 ($69).
