Taking a peek at the photos down below, one can instantly distinguish what they are, seeing that it’s probably a home appliance that’s sitting in your kitchen counter right now. Gavio’s TOAST! speaker dock for the iPhone emulates the look of a good old-fashioned toaster – though, it flaunts a retro-style design that brought home appliances to the limelight during the early days of the last century.
Although some might actually mistake it for a real toaster, it’s merely nothing more than a speaker dock at heart – where a speaker and a 3-watt amplifier is somehow built into one of the slots. Additionally, it features a built-in Li-Ion battery so you can take this chromed out dock on the go, while blasting your favorite tunes.
As much as some of us would love to make this a permanent fixture in our kitchens, Gavio has yet to announce pricing or an actual launch date for it. However, it’s looking to be made available sometime in early 2012 – so keep an eye out for this beauty if you’re interested.
