The company's iHome brand made some additions to its lineup of audio solutions and accessories for the iPad, iPhone, iPod and Android devices with Father's Day and graduations in mind. It debuted the iW2 as a new generation of its AirPlay grouping of speaker systems. The iW2 uses the WiFi network to connect and control one's iTunes library through one's Mac, personal computer, iPad, iPhone or iPod for wireless audio anywhere in one's home or dorm room. The iW2 supports USB docking for iOS device charging and music playback. sditechnologies.com
Also new to the iHome label is the iDM5, which the company touts as "the new ultimate executive workstation." It is a full-sized QWERTY Bluetooth keyboard that works with the iPad, iPhone and other Bluetooth-enabled devices to ease typing. It also features built-in speakers to pump up the user's favorite tunes, and pairs with the built-in microphone to transform the unit into a speakerphone for calls and video conferencing. The iDM5 also comes with two USB ports, providing fast charging of the user's mobile devices. sditechnologies.com
