Everyone is still trying to get a piece of the iPod action. I guess when your company name is iLuv, you’d better love them or be prepared to leave the business.
Hoping to keep the love alive, the company just announced a slew of new devices that can take your iPod beyond the tiny earbuds.
Coming this March, the iLuv i1255 is a dual iPod dock and DVD player. If they had gone the high-def route, it would have been more impressive, especially with the $130 price tag. That said, it’s still a slick looking machine, promising playback of the touch, the Nano 3rd Gen, the video iPod, and the good old classic 80GB and 160GB models.
If you need a nice tabletop unit, the iLuv i399 (pictured below) will be available next month for $229.99. Looking slightly like an elongated paper shredder, the i399 features the company’s BluePin II technology, which allows users to listen via Bluetooth headphones up to 300 feet away.
Finally, they will also have two Bluetooth hands-free car kits available by April. The i720 features caller ID with FM radio and iPod remote functions for $129.99. The i730 adds in multi-dock options for $149.99.
