Logitech debuts mm22 speaker system for iPod

pic Logitech today announced its first iPod product—the mm22 portable speaker system. The system, which can be powered by either batteries or an included AC adapter, features four neodymium micro drivers that produce “rich, smooth sound with tremendous depth for their size.” The mm22 portable speakers can be folded into a small traveling case when you’re on the go. The traveling case holds the speakers, power adapter, two speaker cables, and also has enough room to store the iPod. The Logitech mm22 speaker system comes with three cradles to fit any hard drive-based iPod. It will be available for $79.99 later this month.

A very important point that was mentioned above, but it looked like most people missed - this unit does NOT charge your iPod.

With my iMs, I can leave a background mix running for as long as I want - I use it for days on end in some cases (mood music for RPGs / LARPs).  But if my iPod doesn’t charge, the speakers are useless after the iPod runs out.

This is what makes the iMs superior - they charge / power the iPod.  I’m guessing this is also why these are only $80 - no dock.

Well there goes my plans to buy the Pacific Rim Cube Speakers. I would’ve bought them already if Pacific Rim didn’t charge obscene shipping to Canada. These are a little pricier but look slicker as well.

Guess what? These are a generic product with Logitech’s name on it, unless they signed a special exclusive license, you’ll see these pop-up on eBay real soon under different brand names, most likely for less money.

Another thing, they use AAA batteries! Not good.
