Popalive iPod remote
Alive-Style today announced that it will debut its Popalive bi-directional remote/dock for iPod with support for multilingual menus and song names at the CES trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Popalive remote allows users to control an iPod and view its contents via a built-in 1.5-inch color LCD, drawing power from a built-in 350mAh lithium polymer rechargeable battery to offer omni directional RF signal transmission alongside bi-directional remote control capability. The device operates at 908.42MHz in the U.S. or 878.2MHz in Europe, and features an iPod charging dock with no extra battery required. The Popalive supports fourth- and fifth-generation iPods with audio out, S-video out, and a 30-pin iPod dock connector (pricing was unavailable).
