Music can be played from an iPhone or the cloud-based Pure Lounge on the Contour 100i

If an amphitheater provides a robust sound for audiences, then it would seem to follow that an audio dock with a similar half-circle shape should also provide a nice sound. Pure's 20-watt Contour 100i audio dock for iPhone, iPad and iPod is such a device. It consists of a set of 3-inch speakers, and a revolving cradle that recedes flush with the speakers when not in use. An auxiliary input allows for connection to an MP3 player or other audio device.  Read More

Grace Digital has announced the FireDock speaker dock specifically designed for Amazon's K...

We've seen our fair share of portable device docks here at Gizmag, from the acoustic to the power-hungry and everything in between. Most of those capable of charging the docked device as well as amplify its audio tend to have been designed for use with an iDevice, which is not much use to the 14 million U.S. Kindle Fire users. Rallying to the cause, Grace Digital has launched the FireDock - one of the first speaker docks crafted specifically for Amazon's Kindle Fire 7-inch tablet and featuring full-range stereo speakers, a Class D digital amp and an additional auxiliary input for an optional secondary audio source.  Read More

Anatoliy Omelchenko of Triangle Tree reports that since launching the iBamboo speaker we featured in June 2011, he has received numerous requests from customers asking if there's anything like it that's made from plastic. Despite being made from a material considered stronger than some plastics and metal, users seem worried that the beautifully simple iPhone amplification device may get damaged if made part of their regular travel kit. Enter the new iBamboo Urban design, which is shaped just like its natural elder but is made from recycled plastic.  Read More
