CES 2007: iLuv i277 Bluetooth iPod-docking alarm clock (with video output)

CES 2007, Home audio, MP3 players

iluv.jpgSorry, that’s a slightly unwieldy headline, but I couldn’t think of a snappier way to condense it down. iLuv was at last night’s Digital Experience event, and the product that caught my eye (they have 59 in total at the show) was the iLuv i277.

It’s an alarm clock / music system, which has a built-in AM/FM radio, and a dock for your iPod. However, it also supports iLuv’s own BluePin technology, which is a little dongle that plugs into the top of the hi-fi, and lets it stream music from external sources (think mobile phones, laptops…) and also lets you stream music FROM the hi-fi or your iPod to a pair of Bluetooth headphones.

The i277 costs $199 in the US, and the company told me they’re aiming to bring it to Europe this year as well. There’s another version too, the iLuv iss277, whose dock is designed for Samsung’s Yepp T9 and K3 MP3 players.
