Philips bringt neue Docking-Stationen mit Lightning Connector

Bislang war JBL der einzige Anbieter, der Docking-Stationen mit Apples aktueller Schnittstelle, dem Lightning Connectorim Angebot hatte – gut, eigentlich nur eine, der OnBeat Venue LT wird frühestens nächste Woche wirklich ausgeliefert – , jetzt zieht Philips nach. War ja mit zu rechnen, mehr Auswahl ist immer gut. Ob die Neulinge jedoch pünktlich zum Weihnachtswahnsinn noch in den Läden aufschlagen, scheint fraglich. Los geht’s mit dem DS1155 für 90 Dollar, die Modelle DS3205 und DS7580 kosten je 130 Dollar. Das Flaggschiff, DMC2067 – mit CD-Player und UKW-Radio – hat noch keinen Preis. Die englische Pressemeldung wartet hinter dem Break.
