I believe Memorex bought Xtrememac, which is supposed to come out this month with the X2 being compatible with the iphone.  I wonder regarding the Memorex Dual Alarm Clock Radio will change that.

I ordered the Luna X2 early in 2008. Finally received it in December. Didn’t cancel order because of the iPhone promise. Turns out it doesn’t support the iPhone after all. I’m returning it.

This looks like a good alternative but I’m a little concerned since Imation who bought Xtrememac is also the owner of Memorex…not sure they can be trusted after going back on their word.

Even more of a concern is they have done nothing to tell customers they made a mistake and shouldn’t have committed to the iphone. They have said absolutely nothing. In fact, it took 20 minutes on the phone with support to find out that it isn’t supported and they never responded to an email I send several weeks ago.

If you do try to use the iphone with the x2 you get the message it isn’t compatible and to put it in airplane mode. Ignoring this lead to a huge amount of static interference. Too bad.
