 After the inMotion iM500 thin and portable speaker solution for iPod Nano, Altec Lansing refreshes the inMotion model for iPods with this new iM600. Similarly slim and portable, it is sturdier than the iM500 and contains dual 2-inch neodymium drivers with SFX (stereo field expander). The iM600 also integrates an FM receiver and antenna, and it even doubles up as your room clock when plugged into the mains. The iM600 looks to be an ideal room and on-the-go companion and should be available within the next two months. Includes rechargeable Li-ion batteries and a remote.

 The rear of the iM60 has an auxiliary 3.5mm input, a 3.5mm subwoofer output jack, a Composite output connector, an USB connector and of course the power jack.

 This inMotion iMV712 is dubbed as the mini-theater solution for bedrooms. This unit has an 8.5-inch high resolution widescreen display, dual 3-inch neodymium drivers and a 4-inch side-firing subwoofer. Definitely an ideal companion for teenagers with tons of multimedia content in their iPods, not forgetting as an ideal gift. So look out for it in two months time.

 It is compatible with any dockable iPod or even other portable media players with the included adaptor. On its rear, you'll find Composite audio and video inputs, an auxiliary 3.5mm audio jack and an S-Video output connector if you wish to put the video out to your TV. Specs aside, what we do wonder is why this unit falls under the inMotion series as it's not small nor a lightweight unit to stow away easily.

 The Altec Lansing M812 is wireless home music system. Using a dock that can be place anywhere else in your home, for example your room, but you can mount the main speaker unit up to 30 meters away anywhere else in your home and either on the desk or on the wall. It claims to deliver a room-filling 100 watts of digital power with two 4-inch woofers and a 1-inch neodymium silk dome tweeter. Includes a built-in FM tuner. You can operate the M812 system via the control buttons on the unit or via the included remote. "Unwire your Music" is the theme for this fella.
