Newlaunches: Manufacturers just love designing stuff around the iPhone and the lasts comes from Oxygen Audio. Come CES 2011, the company will be showcasing their latest O’Car audio system that allows you to snap your iPhone onto the front docking port and use the corresponding apps to play music, access GPS information or do other stuff. The O’Car audio system also comes with a cantilever that allows the iPhone to be swiveled into portrait or landscape mode. You can pick up an app from the store that will give you control over the system and offers AM/FM/RDS radio and even provides seamless app multi-tasking. The system includes Bluetooth handsfree calling and an audio dimming option for when you’re accessing programs on your phone that also have audio output functionality like getting turn-by-turn directions or on calls.
Now this device isn’t going to be specifically for the iPhone, the aftermarket manufacturer is even developing adapters for Android devices. Sadly the system doesn’t integrate steering wheel controls. Oxygen Audio’s O’Car audio system is priced at $299 and should be out in first quarter of 2011, but word is that Europe just might see it a lot sooner.
