Speakal has introduced its iPig speaker system for iPod. iPig, as the name suggests, is designed to resemble a pig, and features an integrated iPod Dock, 5 speakers, including a 4-inch subwoofer, powered by a built-in 25-watt amplifier, adjustable bass control, indicator lights built into the system’s “mouth,” and an RF remote control. Available now in white, yellow, or pink, the Speakal iPig sells for $140.

Yeah?  Really?  $140 for a plastic pig?  Who is the market for this thing?

Sure, it ain’t for everybody, but I think this has a chance to be a real success. It’s got plenty of cutesy appeal.

As an Arkansas Razorback diehard, however, I would recommend that Speakal introduce a nice red color so we Hog fans would have incentive to purchase. Trust me, there are plenty of folks around here that would buy one.

For something close to $40 you can get a wireless logitech system that will give you the chance to connect any MP3 and use it as a remote control…and even more important, you can use any type of speakers or sound sytem that you probably have ...instead of buying this uggly thing.

I think it’d be great in a nursery.

I’ve saw this pig on CES, it has very impressive sound. I remember it’s from a company named Lanchiya digital, named amethyst iPig, and they have many very good speakers

Tolles teil, habe ich mir auf der IFA angeschaut.

Das IPig ( IPod Dockinstation ) gibt es bei http://www.repteil.de ,
schon für 54,90 Euro zu kaufen.

Der USA Preis ist Utopie!!

Der Sound ist kaum zu glauben.
