iHome announces AirPlay speaker

First of its kind?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

There's pretty darn little to say about this box, but the headline fact: it supports - or, rather, will support - Apple's AirPlay media streaming technology.

iHome AirPlay

Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Marantz and JBL have all said they too will support AirPlay, but have yet to make product announcements.

Not so iHome which has revealed this box, which it says the box has a built-in battery so you can carry it from room to room, all the time the speaker streaming music from your iTunes-running computer.

And control that computer, since the iHome box has track controls on top and AirTunes, AirPlay's music-only predecessor already supports this.

For now, it's all vapourware, of course. Anyone can say they're going to build a product, shipping it is something else. iHome is promising this boy before Christmas.

AirPlay is in iTunes 10 now, and will debut with iOS 4.2, expected in November. ®
