Philips DCM270 DAP dock
The DCM270 Docking Entertainment System is an unusual stereo dock being prepared by Philips. Wheareas most docks are built to fit on a shelf or desktop, the 270 is in fact a tower speaker with added CD and radio functions. Moreover, the dock supports not just iPods, but Philips' own GoGear digital audio players. The company has not specified when and at what price the DCM270 will ship; it is known however that the product will be making its premiere at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show, scheduled for next month in Las Vegas.
