Sony has introduced a new clock radio, the ICF-C1iP, and boombox, ZS-S2iP, both with integrated iPod Docks. The ICF-C1iP clock radio works with standard Dock adapters, but doesn’t require them thanks to an adjustable backstop mechanism. Other features include iPod charging while docked, automatic time setting, an alarm that allows users to choose between waking to the iPod, radio, or buzzer, and an included remote control. imageThe ZS-S2iP boombox also charges the iPod when docked, and features a digital AM/FM tuner, an integrated CD player with CD-R/RW support, wireless remote, an auxiliary-in port, Sony’s Mega Bass sound system, and a retractable Dock tray. “Consumers are treating the iPod as a format, like the compact disc, which is why Sony is now delivering audio products to support it,” said Andrew Sivori, director of personal audio products in the Digital Imaging and Audio Division at Sony Electronics. Both models will be available in August in both black and white designs, and will sell for around $100.

In addition to the iPod dock, they also managed to integrate large amounts of ugly.

They look so 90’s.  Everyone knows that anything electronic made now-a-days needs to be made out of white shiny plastic with a cool blue LCD read out.

Yep.  Tech products should either be hip and futuristic or hip and retro.

I don’t know why you find the obnoxious ‘white plastic, blue led’ trend so appealing. These Sony docks have a discrete elegance to them, that doesn’t scream ‘Look at me! I was made for iPod!’

Both docks also come in white.

I’m going to buy the ICF-C1iP.
