iDuo combines iPod dock and memory card reader


imageAtech Flash Technology has introduced the iDuo, an all-in-one USB 2.0 iPod dock and flash memory card reader. In addition to letting you easily sync/charge your iPod, the device features three card slots that allow you to transfer content from 10 different types of flash media to your computer.

The $59.95 product works with both Macs and PCs and offers support for Compact Flash Type I and II, Microdrive, MultiMedia, xD-Picture Card, Smart Media, Memory Stick, MagicGate Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, and Secure Digital. It also features an adjustable spacer to accommodate all iPods and iPod minis, a line-out to listen to music from speakers, and S-Video out to view photos on your TV from a color screen iPod.

Atech Flash Technology has also announced the KB-Reader, a multimedia keyboard that features a docking port for various Atech attachments such as its iPod Docking Adapter that also lets you charge/sync your iPod. The docking keyboard features 14 internet/media hot keys and sells for $49.95.

Add the ability to transfer photos from the cards TO the iPod (not just to the computer) and complete the system :) It doesn’t seem like it does that—it’s just an iPod accessory and a non-iPod accessory in one unit.

It may simply be a combination of two different uses, but for someone who doesn’t already have a dock and a separate card reader or just wants to get one in-the-way device off the desktop, this isn’t a bad idea.

However, I tend to prefer FireWire over USB2, and I already have a SanDisk multi-format card reader…no iDuo for me…

Does this thing read SD and MMC cards?

I REALLY like this idea.

-Seems really neat, and looks cool.

I almost got excited until I read it only uploads the photos to your computer, not the iPod.  Bummer!

Is it a single USB2.0 port? Or does it have multiple ports? No point in buying it if it still takes up multiple ports.

I agree with Nagrome. If it could do that, I’d probably buy it. Without that, it’s what I’ve got, except in a bigger package than I already have… Card readers are in the printer, dock on desk.

SD = Secure Digital
MMC = MultiMedia
