CES 2008: Belkin launches TuneBase FM iPhone / iPod car accessory

CES 2008, iPhone, iPod

belkin-tunebase-iphone.jpgIt might not be MacWorld until next week, but something tells me CES is going to be stuffed with freshly-minted iPhone accessories nonetheless. Belkin has just announced the TuneBase FM, for example, which is an FM transmitter for use in-car, for the iPhone and iPods.

There are already products like that available, of course. Belkin reckons the selling point of this one is its ClearScan technology, which makes it less fiddly to find a free FM frequency to broadcast your music by automatically scanning for it.

TuneBase FM also charges your iPhone or iPod while they’re connected to it, which is a bonus. It’s due on sale in April around the world, including the UK and Europe. The US pricing is $99.99, but no news yet on how that’ll translate to good old British sterling.
