Philips announces four new Lightning speaker docks for iPhone 5

Just in time for the holidays, Philips unleashed some rather handsome speaker docks for the iPhone 5 and other Lightning plug iDevices. They will be available this month, but Philips did not outline which retailers would be carrying the new gear. Apple retail locations have carried Philips accessories in the past, as have the traditional “big box” stores.
Pricing was also not announced, but based on what some existing iPhone/iPod speaker docks are priced at on Philips’ web-site, these docks may range in price from about $70 to $200. With the release of these new products, it may be a good time to scout the 30-pin iPhone 3GS/4/4S compatible devices since some of the legacy accessories may begin to go on sale.
True to Philips’ past products, they certainly look nice, and the company has been known to make some very nice electronics. Will any of these make your wish list or gift list?
It has a 360-degree design, providing rich omnidirectional sound to fill your bedroom. The clock display of the docking speaker automatically synchronizes with the clock of your Apple device, and the speaker also includes a USB port at the back of the speaker allowing users to easily charge a second mobile device.
