Just when you thought Apple’s domination of the digital market has hit a peak, word reaches us that the computer giant plans to launch several new iPod-related digital audio products at the start of next year, including an iPod boombox, described as unlike "anything Apple has released in the past". According to Appleinsider, the website which let’s face it has got plenty of stuff right in the past these "iPod companions" are set to be unveiled at the annual Macworld expo in San Francisco, which is held during the second week of January.
Details of the products are sparse, but one source described the boombox as "an oversized iPod with boombox-type speakers". It is believed to include wireless audio streaming capabilities, but could also rely on a built-in hard drive, iPod dock, or a combination of the three technologies.
With iPod owners snapping up huge numbers of accessories to go with their players, Apple could be onto another winner. We’ll keep our ears to the ground for any further developments.
