IME Dock for iPod, Zune
Integrated Mobile Electronics has revealed what it claims is the first true universal music player dock for cars as part of the official launch of Microsoft's Zune.net site -- which promotes the upcoming music player. The company's IME Dock is designed to connect numerous media players -- such as Apple's iPod, the Sansa e200, and Microsoft's Zune -- directly to a vehicle's entertainment system to plays its audio or video regardless of the device or file format. Connected players also charge through the station and play content even on systems with multiple LCDs. A remote control function is also expected, according to Elecetronista. No pricing has been announced, though the company said it will start shipping the IME Dock in February.
