There are dozens of docking speakers for iPods/iPhone, but there aren’t quite so many for iPad. The JiPS-250i from Jensen is a docking speaker for iPad that offers a bit more – plus it will even work with iPhone/iPod. The first thing you’ll notice is the arm assembly that allows you to rotate the iPad to horizontal or vertical orientation. It will also swivel so you can raise or lower the iPad; you can even lower it to a 41-degree angle for typing. The dock has two speakers (3W per channel), volume control, and a remote control. There’s an audio input for connecting an iPod Shuffle or other mp3 player. Video output connectors let you play video content from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or iPod 5th generation on your TV. You can download a free app for an enhanced alarm clock with sleep function, weather, voice message, calendar, EQ setting, music player, nature sounds, photo album, slideshow, internet radio, and more. The MSRP is $99.99, but you can get it through Amazon.com for about $70.
