Intros keyring dock
Frankfurt/Main, Germany May 09, 2005 Following the success of the PocketDock Line Out FireWire, SendStation today announced another member in its highly acclaimed series of thumb-sized iPod adapters, the PocketDock Line Out USB. It is the first iPod adapter on the market which features a standard USB socket as well as a 3.5 mm (1/8") jack, offering stereo line out from your iPod.
The cool thing about USB is that no matter where you go, you can find the required cable almost anywhere, stated SendStation’s Founder André Klein. Just unplug a cable from a USB printer or scanner, hook up the PocketDock and you can instantly sync and charge your iPod.
Featuring a Line Out jack which provides superior audio quality compared to the iPod headphone jack, the PocketDock Line Out USB is the ultimate choice for every DJ or HiFi enthusiast. In an effort to boost convenience, the included cables allow instant connection to an external amplifier or stereo system. The PocketDock Line Out USB is fully USB 2.0 compliant, providing transfer speeds of up to 480 Mbps when connected to USB 2.0 ports. Additionally, the PocketDock’s streamlined design is a perfect match for the iPod and iPod mini.
Due to customer demand, SendStation also introduced a detachable keyring dock which protects the dock connector and conveniently allows customers to always carry a PocketDock with them.
Customers have often found themselves in situations without their PocketDock at hand, says Klein. Since most people never leave home without their keys, our simple and efficient keyring dock empowers customers to bring their PocketDocks almost anywhere.
The PocketDock Line Out USB is the first PocketDock to sport the keyring dock, existing models will be upgraded over time. Users who already own a PocketDock can inexpensively upgrade theirs with a set of 3 keyring docks at USD 1.98 (incl. shipping) from SendStation’s Online Store.
