Today Haier introduced two new iPad docking stations – the IPD-01 – Flex and IPD-100 – View XL. The IPD-100 – View XL features 25 watt speakers, an FM Tuner, AUX input for other MP3 players, as well as the ability to dock it in portrait or landscape view while charging. You can also watch shows, movies, or slideshows on your TV screen because it has a Video Output (component) as well as a remote control.
The IPD-100 – View XL will retail for $129.99 and launch in November.
The IPD-01-Flex also adds ‘flexibility’ to docking your iPad because it can dock it in three different positions. There is an ergonomic position for typing, a portrait view for reading, or a landscape view for watching movies and video. The system also has a built-in speaker, AUX input, and comes with a remote control. The IPD -01 Flex will retail for $79.99 and launches in November. Overall, not bad for a company that until now, was best known for fridges and air conditioners.
