iH26 iPod alarm clock
iHome today introduced its new, compact iH26 iPod alarm clock. Designed as a portable system for travelers seeking both an alarm clock and iPod playback in their hotel rooms, the iH26 has a low-profile design that can fit in a small carrying case. The new model features a built-in dock for the first- generation iPod shuffle, allowing it to play music directly from the iPod shuffle and charge it as well as a Dock Connector-based iPod at the same time, according to Electronista. The system can also wake to any audio device plugged into the auxiliary input jack. Users can also use a sleep timer with its own separate volume level. Versions of the iH26 ship in black, white, and silver from iHome for $100. It includes a protective carrying case with handle and full function remote control.
