Sony S4iP Leak

Sony is preparing at least a third iPhone and iPod speaker dock for its lineup, says a leak from Sony Insider. In contrast to the CD3iP, the S4iP would be larger than any of Sony's iPod-oriented speaker docks to date and would use a vertical tray reminiscent of cassette decks and a handful of other iPod speakers. The load method would protect touchscreen Apple devices but appears to potentially hide the home button.

Like the bedside CD3iP, the S4iP should support playback of regular and MP3 CDs as well as an AM/FM radio and generic devices connected through an aux-in jack. The stereo has already reportedly turned up in Australian online sales systems and will cost the equivalent of $143 US in black and white color schemes for an expected October release. Sony is predicted to launch the S4iP in North America but may drop the price when bringing it to the US and Canada.
