iLuv's App-Driven iMM190 App Station Alarm Clock Ships For $90

iLuv has managed to hold their own in the volatile iPod accessory market, and now they're one of the biggest names in the iPod clock market. Amazingly enough, it seems that not everyone has one of these yet, because iLuv just keeps cranking them out. The newest one is a bit different than the others, though, with the iMM190 App Station coming with an iLuv app clock application.

The stylish device is available now to U.S. consumers, and when docked (and the app running), users can actually use their iPod touch or iPhone display as a large clock, weather screen or to view loads of other bits of small, web-connected information. In addition to the App, this multimedia speaker dock combines speakers, hard buttons and support for VoIP chat, and at $89.99, it's actually one of the cheaper options out there. And for those days when you'd just rather not use your iPhone, the auxiliary input line ensures that your old Zune will work here too.

I think the coolest part of this is it's so universal in compatibility for this type of specialized device. I mean it will fit an iPhone, and Ipad, a Zune, a Touch, and pretty much it seems any media player device that fits the profile, and has the correct connections. On top of that it charges so it is like a all in one dock.

I really like all the features that it adds. And I think the price is great too.

Great marketing ploy!!!

Lets call it the Ilove, then maybe everyone will fall in love with it and buy millions?

To bad there are like millions of others to chose from on the market. This has been exactly why I haven't picked one of these docks up yet. Even when I see one at Ross that used to be $99 and is selling for $20. I keep thinking to myself, Yeah... I;ll just wait to see with what they come out with next? Then my standard dock that just plugs into the stereo does just fine, and the old magnovox alarm clock stays around for a few more years :)

Now with all the Home Theatres in a box that have docks, you can kinda kill 2Birds. Then download an app like this that gives the clock features.
