Altec Lansing introduced the newest member of its inMotion family, the inMotion Classic (iMT620), which works with iPhones as well as iPods and includes an FM tuner (non-HD, however). Based on the iM600 — one of the best-selling portable iPod speaker systems ever — the inMotion Classic offers advances in portability, audio performance and, of course, iPhone compatibility.
Compact and lightweight, the inMotion Classic folds to the size of a small book. Its clever multi-function handle serves three important roles: swing up for grab-and-go transport, swing back as a kickstand and swing under to stow away and turn off the battery.
“Works with iPhone” certification means interference-free listening, eliminating the need to switch the iPhone to airplane mode. iPhone and iPod devices are automatically charged when the inMotion Classic is plugged into a power outlet.
The remote control features full menu navigation for iPhone and iPod, allowing users to browse artists, songs and playlists directly from the remote. The high-contrast LCD always lets you know the song details from afar.
The iMT620 will be available in mid-September at Best Buy, Apple retail stores and www.Apple.com, www.Amazon.com, Toys “R” Us and other leading consumer electronics retailers, as well as at www.alteclansing.com. MSRP is $149.95.
