SendStation announces PocketDock FireWire-to-iPod adapter
Frankfurt/Main, Germany July 09, 2003 Sendstation Systems today announced the PocketDock, an indispensable companion for Apple’s sensational and wildly successful new iPod MP3 player. The PocketDock is smaller than a box of matches and allows a standard 6-pin FireWire cable to connect to the iPod’s proprietary docking port, giving the user the freedom and independence she has come to expect from her iPod.
When you’re on the road with your new iPod, says André Klein, SendStation Systems founder, and you want to connect to another Mac or PC to exchange files or just to charge the battery, you’ll probably find that you didn’t bring the special docking cable it’s at home connected to your computer. The PocketDock, small enough to carry anywhere, is a simple and elegant solution.
As an additional benefit, the PocketDock lets you use accessories with your new iPod that were designed for previous models, such as car chargers.
The PocketDock’s elegant design is a perfect match for the iPod, and it fits in your wallet.
Pricing & Availability
The PocketDock will be available starting in July for $16.95 (SRP) directly from SendStation Systems and from authorized dealers worldwide. Customers are able to pre-order their PocketDock immediately on the web site at sendstation.com.
