JBL Wireless AirPlay Speaker Hits FCC

No comments:



JBL's On Air Wireless speaker dock and manual has just hit the FCC, according to Engadget.

The On Air Wireless seems like a fancier riff on JBL's On Air line of speaker docks and alarm clocks -- it features that familiar swoopy-loop design but adds in a large color LCD display that displays album artwork while streaming music. Looking at the manual, the display also makes WiFi setup and configuration a little easier, which is nice. All in all, it looks promising, but we'll see what price and availability looks like when we get to CES.

iHome has teased the iW1 AirPlay wireless speaker system with rechargeable battery. It was supposed to be available this holiday season; however, it doesn't look like that time frame will be met.
