Enhanced audio, functions enliven selection of docking stations for iPod

 

Companies are also raising buyer interest via visually appealing designs.

 

TOP TRENDS

 

  • Enhanced audio: China makers are raising the speaker power output to 60W. Some are integrating hi-fi speakers or class D amplifiers for better sound quality.
  • Feature upgrades: Larger LCDs and video playback can be expected in upcoming models, with several capable of supporting a wider range of media formats. Products can charge not only the iPod but also the iPhone and iPad series. To ensure safety, most releases have overcurrent and -voltage, and short-circuit protection. More businesses are pursuing MFI licensing to guarantee compatibility.
  • Improved aesthetics: To boost visual appeal, suppliers are exploring nontraditional designs such as round, and toy and animal shapes. They are using multicolor patterns and high-gloss spray oil or paint finish. Companies are likewise adopting quality materials such as metal alloy and solid wood.
  • Adding value: Multimedia playback, FM radio, touch buttons and Bluetooth connectivity are the popular add-ons. Built-in HDD, and eSATA and LAN ports can also be incorporated on request.
