Sonos Controller for Android due March with voice control [Video]

Sonos has announced its latest controller app, this time headed to Android smartphones. The Sonos Controller for Android will hit the Market in late March and, like the company's existing iOS apps, be a free download. New on the Android version, however, is music voice search, which will allow users to search for tracks, artists and albums using spoken requests.

Voice control also works for searching for new streaming radio stations, and the Android app has the same multi-room volume and track control as its predecessors. It requires a device running Android 2.1 or later, with a screen size of HVGA 320 x 480, WVGA 480 x 800 or WVGA 480 x 854; that basically means most recent phones.

Orb MP-1 $69 WiFi media streamer takes on Sonos [Video]

Orb is better known for its media-streaming software, but the company has obviously been harboring some hardware ambitions too.  Quietly making its debut is the Orb MP-1, a 3.28-inch disc packed with WiFi b/g/n and a simple 3.5mm audio output, that can hook up to a powered speaker system or existing HiFi and work as a far simpler (and cheaper) alternative to Sonos.

Sonos Wireless Dock WD100 streams iPod/iPhone music

Sonos Wireless Dock WD100 streams iPod/iPhone music

Sonos has outed the latest part of its streaming music puzzle, in the shape of the Sonos Wireless Dock WD100.  Packing an integrated Sonos wireless connection and an iPod/iPhone docking connector, the WD100 basically takes whatever music is stored on your Apple PMP and funnels it around the house.

It's all Apple certified, so there shouldn't be any annoying "this accessory isn't supported" pop-ups, and it'll work with a broad range of the company's hardware: the iPod touch (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd, 4th, and 5th generation), and iPhone (original, 3G, 3GS and 4).  Sadly no iPad support, since the cradle is the wrong shape.
