Sony iPod Dock for Bravia
Without fanfare, Sony has released its new Digital Media Port iPod Dock. The relatively rare concession to the iPod market links the Apple music player to the Digital Media Port of Sony's newer Bravia home theaters and receivers to both play and control its music or video through the larger system. Composite video output and the ability to charge an iPod are similarly built-in.
The dock is compatible with all fourth- and fifth-generation iPods as well as all iPod mini and nano models. Sony is taking pre-orders today and plans to ship the dock in May for $100, complementing its earlier IP001 iPod speakers.
