Berlin, Germany – Sept 3rd, 2010 – Altec Lansing today introduced the space saving Octiv 102 audio dock to give iPhone and iPod users a versatile way to charge their devices while enjoying crystal clear sound. At home, at college or at work, the Octiv 102 pulls double-duty as a functional alarm clock when combined with the free new Altec Lansing custom Alarm Rock app.
Whether charging up, rocking out or waking up, the Octiv 102 delivers the amazing audio quality that is a hallmark of Altec Lansing products. Pound for pound, the Octiv 102 holds its own against bulkier speaker systems, and is even more appealing when considering similarly priced stand-alone chargers. Included is the free Alarm Rock app* for the iPhone and iPod which acts as a full-featured digital alarm clock complete with time display and an oversized snooze button. The Altec Lansing Alarm Rock app is available in the iTunes app store as a free download. Users can choose to wake or sleep to their favorite audio files and songs while enjoying a fully customizable interface to match even the most eclectic taste.
“Because the Octiv 102 functions as a dock, a charger and an alarm clock with the included app, it represents an amazing value that will be appreciated by those who will not compromise on sound quality for a smaller footprint,” comments Adrian Bedggood, Altec Lansing EMEA manager. “Music is an integral part of life for many people and we’re making it easy for users to experience great sound in a small package or wake up immersed in their favourite music.”
Octiv 102 features include:
- Listen without interference – Certified to work with iPhone and iPod
- Modern minimalist design for any space – At approximately 10cm wide and 12.5cm deep, little room is needed
- Audio Alignment™ – Altec Lansing’s expertise ensure that drivers, enclosure and electronics are balanced for optimum sound.
