imageGriffin Technology has announced its lineup of iPod products that it will show off at next week’s Macworld Conference & Expo. The lineup of existing and new products includes:

Amplifi is a 2.1 iPod sound system featuring an all-wood, acoustically tuned enclosure, two front-firing 2-3/4” neodymium drivers and a 5” downward-firing woofer. It also offers a built-in iPod dock, 3.5mm stereo input jack, and IR remote.

imageJourni (previously known as Voyager) is a mobile speaker system that features a Wrapstand exterior which “protects your iPod when you’re on the go, then flips open to create its own stand.” It has internal Lithium-Ion batteries (8-10 hours of play on a single charge), an adjustable dock bay, and speakers with SRS Labs’ SRS WOW digital signal processing.

AirDock (A) is a silver metal iPod dock that allows you to connect your iPod to a stereo or TV. It also charges an iPod and comes with a 5-button RF remote for controlling playback from up to 60 feet away.

Dock Adapter for iPod Shuffle enables use of the second-generation iPod shuffle in devices with an Apple Universal iPod Dock.

TuneFlex AUX is identical to Griffin’s TuneFlex automobile charging cradle, but includes a 1/8” (3.5mm) auxiliary input cable instead of a cassette adapter.

TuneJuice 2 is an improved version of Griffin’s battery backup brick for iPods. Powered by 4 AAA batteries, TuneJuice 2 adds up to 14 additional hours of audio play and 2 additional hours of video play.

Reflect Cases (B) for the second-generation iPod nano and fifth-generation iPod sport polycarbonate hard shells with a mirrored-chrome reflective face. “Wake up your iPod, and the bright, clear iPod screen shows up as if by magic,” says Griffin. The Reflect cases have a matte black rubberized back.
 
Tempo for iPod shuffle (C) is a new adjustable armband for the second-generation iPod shuffle. It features a built-in cord wrap and reflective accents for night safety.

• iClear Custom (D) is a new version of Griffin’s see-through iClear case which gains a slot in the back to add your own photographs and artwork. Versions will be available for the second-generation iPod nano and fifth-generation iPod.

Pricing and availability for the products was not provided.

Wow. More products that Griifin can fail on their promise to deliver. Availabilty dates will be stated but never to be believed.

Dave… Agree absolutely.

Still waiting for that WiFi Tunecenter.

Still waiting on my WiFi Tunecenter also.  Back in November I had an email exchange with Griffin customer service and was told it would ship “next month”.  I guess that’s what they say when they mean “don’t hold your breath”.

The non-WiFi version has been out of stock since shortly after they first shipped.  I’m guessing that they’ve going to eliminate the TuneCenter from their product line and replace it with the AirDock.  That is assuming that they can manage actually get it out the door. 

It was about a year ago when they announced the TuneCenter.  I’m thinking it’s about time to give up and just buy the DLO HomeDock.  It’s available, and it comes in black.

The Reflect cases are a blatant ripoff of what Power Support (http://www.powersupportusa.com) has been doing for the last year.

I thought Griffen had better design talent then simply copying another good companies work.

Picture D: what is the iPod model shown on the right side? the long awaited true iPod video? wink

Genemaster: no, it is just a case with a picture in the back. The one accessory shown here that will definitely sell well is the shuffle-dock adapter. It will let those who have invested in infrastructure for their 5Gs and Nanos use shuffles in docks.

Yay, I want to buy a case that will scratch more than my iPod does! (cough cough retarded).

I wonder what (if any) dock accessories will work with the shuffle adapter…
