Philips shows gadgets galore

Docking stations ago-go

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Philips this week launched a slew of products at its Consumer Lifestyle Event in Sintra near Lisbon, including a digital photo frame that doubles as an alarm clock radio and more iPod docking stations than you can shake a stick at.

At the rain-battered Penha Longa Spa and Golf Resort, Philips demonstrated the DC910 Docking Entertainment System, which allows an iPod Touch to be placed in either portrait or landscape mode, the better to view videos. The system offers 30W RMS total audio output power and FM digital tuning with presets, and it handles MP3 and WMA playback.

Another new iPod docking centre is the enormously tall DC570, which delivers 100W RMS sound output via its fully integrated 2.1-channel speaker system with built-in sub-woofer.

The WACS7500 Wireless Music Centre can hold approximately tracks ripped from around 1500 CDs, and streams music wirelessly between its stations and a PC. Album art can be viewed in full colour.

Philips AJL305

Philips' AJL305: clock-cum-home message centre

The tabletop or wall-mountable Philips AJL305 alarm clock radio even comes with voice messaging. It allows consumers to record voice messages to family members, with each member matched to a dedicated mailbox. Consumers can view colour photo slideshows on its 1.5in colour display, and see family portraits showing different voice message mailboxes.

Philips also showed its latest addition to the Philips GoGearMp3 player family: the iPod-inspired feature-packed SA52, which plays MP3, WMA and AAC and incorporates an FM radio. Videos can be played on the bright 2.8in colour screen.

Most future audio products will contain Philips FullSound technology, which, the manufacturer claimed, dynamically enhances treble, bass and stereo effects to reveal previously-unheard music details. Philips says it won't license the technology to other manufacturers for the time being.
