Mobile iPod dock unveiled
M-Infotech has unveiled its IH19, a mobile dock designed to protect iPods from rattle and weather damage. Users strap an iPod to the inside of the unit, where a cable connects the player to a set of speakers and external controls. Track, volume, and play/pause buttons are all accessible on the outside of the closed case. While the device currently offers no way to charge iPods through the dock, it is promoted as being waterproof, according to Electronista. The IH19 is currently shipping in Japan for $125, though online pricing and sales points are currently unknown.
