Octiv Mini iPhone/iPod dock unveiled by Altec Lansing

Every time we look around there are one or two new iPhone and iPod docks being tossed onto the market. Some folks want a big dock with lots of power and features and others want a compact dock that takes up little space. The folks liking compact docks may be interested in the new Altec Lansing Octiv Mini Multifunction Audio Dock.

The little dock works with both the iPhone and most dockable iPod models. The thing has an associated app called the Alarm Rock app that is on the iPod and iPhone that lets the dock be used as a fully featured alarm clock. With the app, the iPhone or iPod touch displays the time along with a big snooze button and you can wake to your music.

The dock has a cool angled design and uses one 3-inch full range-driver. The cabinet measures 4.5" W x 4" D x 3.8" H. Like most docks, the Octiv Mini charges your docked device while you listen. Orders are being taken now for the dock at $59.95 with free shipping directly from Altec Lansing.
