DLO debuts Nano-like iPod wireless remote

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

There are iPod docks with remote controls, but there aren't many with remote controls that let you choose your music without getting up close to the music player's diminutive display. DLO's new HomeDock Music Remote is one of them.

The dock unit itself is pretty standard. It'll take a range of iPods old and new, and connect them to a hi-fi via an RCA cable. An AC adaptor keeps the player powered up and its battery charged.

The smart part is the Nano-like remote, which can also be connected to the dock - it has its own bay - for a recharge. The remote's four-line OLED screen tells you what the player's playing and allows you to select the songs you want using a control that's as easy to use as the iPod's own.

The two connect wirelessly at a range of up to 45m (150ft) and unlike other remotes you don't need a line of sight to the dock.

And it's a snip at $130 (£66/€96) from DLO's online store.
