Speaker-docks for Apple's iPod range are big business, but users are expecting more than just music out of their audio accessories, they want video too. Logic3's i-Station 25 and i-Station Rotate both offer audio playback, but also tackle video playback too, though in slightly different ways. The 25 takes a simple approach, rocking onto its side for widescreen video from your iPod touch or iPhone; meanwhile the Rotate is more advanced, with a swivelling cradle section that rotates 90-degrees.
Full specifications and Unboxing Video after the cut
In each of the boxes, there's the speaker-dock itself, an IR remote control with button-battery, a 3.5mm stereo audio cable to plug in a non-Apple PMP or other gadget, an AC adapter and regional power plug modules. The i-Station Rotate also comes with various dock adapters.
Each also has a video-out socket, so you can hook up a TV or other monitor. We'll have the full review of both Logic3 speaker-docks soon, but until then enjoy the unboxing video!
