Altec Lansing takes wraps off T612 iPhone speaker system


Altec Lansing has introduced its new T612 digital audio system for the iPhone and iPod. The T612 sports iPhone-complementing features like support for incoming calls. If a call comes in while music is playing, the iPhone gives priority to the call by pausing the music, and once the call is completed, and the iPhone is re-docked in the T612, the music resumes playing at the same place in the same song. Other features include internal GSM shielding to keep the speakers from picking up interference from the iPhone’s radio, neodymium speakers, XdB bass-enhancement technology, an integrated Universal Dock, an auxiliary-in jack, and a wireless remote. “Altec Lansing has a long history of engineering innovative, high-performance audio products: such as the first speakers used in a feature-length talkie movie in 1927 and the first iPod audio dock in 2003,” said Vicki Marion, president, Altec Lansing. “We believe Apple enthusiasts will welcome the impressive sound, music controls and call support features that make the T612 a perfect companion for both the iPod and the iPhone.” The Altec Lansing T612 will be available in February and will be priced at $200.

Maybe, I don’t get it, the iPhone already pauses the music and puts the call through, then resume after the call when in a dock. What is it that this speaker dock has to do differently to make that continue to work? My best guess is that the speakers cut off passing audio during a call to avoid feedback, and turns that back on when the call ends.
