Philips shows three Fidelio Android docks

Philips at IFA introduced three new audio docks meant to work with portable Android devices like smartphones and tablets. They are largely Android versions of Philips' iPod docks, with the same hardware other than the connectors being micro USB instead of Apple's Dock Connector in this case. The AS111 is the smallest of the three, with the AS351 larger but also made to go mobile thanks to a battery compartment, and the AS851 the largest and offering the best sound.

All can accommodate an Android device in either portrait or landscape orientations. Philips released a dedicated Fidelio app that's free and pairs the Android devices over Bluetooth with the sound docks. It also lets users find new artists, music styles and media stores. It can play music either from a library stored on the phone or media from the web.

The AS851 has 30W going to its large speakers. The AS351 has 10W but is portable and gets an auxiliary input on the rear, while the AS111 is the smallest and offers omnidirectional sound.

Pricing or release dates haven't been revealed for the devices, however.
