Pocket-Lint: Philips is to debut a new set of Android specific accessories at this year’s CES including headsets, Wi-Fi powered multimedia players and even protective cases.
The company is aiming to be the first ever to offer proper made for Android accessories, as opposed to the iPhone and iPad-centric products. It means owners of handsets like the Galaxy S II and the Motorola RAZR will have a proper set of decent audio products that link up easily with their smartphones. (more…)
Electronista: Philips at IFA introduced three new audio docks meant to work with portable Android devices like smartphones and tablets. They are largely Android versions of Philips’ iPod docks, with the same hardware other than the connectors being micro USB instead of Apple’s Dock Connector in this case. The AS111 is the smallest of the three, with the AS351 larger but also made to go mobile thanks to a battery compartment, and the AS851 the largest and offering the best sound. (more…)
Newlaunches.com: We’ve seen a handful of speakers rolling in for iPods and iPhones but there haven’t really been too many iPad accessories to play music out loud. This cool Bluetooth enabled wireless speaker called the Fidelio is Philips’ way of spreading the love and music from your iPad. It incorporates a pair of 3-inch full range woofers that pump out 15-Watts (x2) RMS output. It also provides support for A2DP/AVRCP Bluetooth connectivity. Simply download the Fidelio App and customize the use of the speaker directly from your phone.
The kit also packs a remote control for the speaker that will control volume and playback of tracks. There’s no word about the battery durability.
