Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sony has unveiled two new iPod docks, one with wireless Bluetooth capabilities and the other with a USB port for MP3 playback.

The CMT-V75BTiP and the CMT-V50iP both sport docks compatible with the iPod, iPhone and iPad, as well as a subtly hidden CD player for those still attached to their physical music collection.

The CMT-V75BTiP packs the Bluetooth connectivity, streaming music from the iOS platform wirelessly. It also comes with DAB/DAB+ support for digital radio fans.

The CMT-V50iP turns up with a USB port, so users can plug in their sticks and access MP3s.

Both feature Sony's first flirtations with Magnetic Fluid technology, with damperless speakers for improved clarity.

The pair of docks hit Blighty this June. Prices have yet to be set. ®
