iPhone speaker dock emulates the look of a retro-style toaster, but doesn't actually toast
There are numerous sorts of docks made specifically for the iPhone, some being more practical than others of course, but every now and then, we see one that blends yesterday’s classic styles with today’s modernistic needs.

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.

sure that some apple fans will put by mistake their shinny gadget in a real toaster
