iLuv ships i399 speakers

After some delay, iLuv has announced that it is finally shipping its i399 iPod speaker dock. The system produces 45W of RMS output across 2.1 channels, and can both play and charge an iPod at the same time; "most dockable iPods" are supported, excluding those of the first three generations. The Shuffle and other sound sources are supported through an auxiliary 3.5mm input, and an integrated FM tuner supports up to 20 presets.

Included with the i399 is iLuv's BluePin II, which enables two-way use of the system with various Bluetooth 1.0-2.0 devices; while on a simple level it can output to remote speakers, it can also connect to various Bluetooth-enabled phones, headsets and computers, supporting A2DP stereo and AVRCP remote control where available. Range is also an unusual 300 feet, 10 times the distance normally covered with Bluetooth. The i399 is selling for $230.
