iHome serves up first clock radio for Zune

iHome ZN9

iHome today catered to the relatively small but growing number of Zune users with the ZN9, an audio system it says is the first clock radio dock for Microsoft's media players. Similar in style to the iP99 dock for iPhones and iPods, the ZN9 centers around a multi-alarm system that can wake either to AM/FM radio or any dockable Zune with varying degrees of control. Listeners can wake to separate weekday and weekend alarms as well as set the alarm to gradually lower or raise the volume in sleep and wake modes.


Unique to the ZN9 is its integration with the Zune's wireless sync feature; as the iHome system charges the Zune while it plays, users can tell the Zune to update with new songs from the radio. iHome intends to give the system a mid-range $100 price and is taking pre-orders today with expectations of shipping the ZN9 in July.

    feature. I wonder how it works? Do you have to provide the ZN9 with your password, etc?
