Though there hasn't been much demand for third-party Universal Dock Adapters in the past, SyntheCept has come up with the Lyco Adapter ($10), which transforms Apple- and third-party Universal Dock-equipped accessories and speakers for use with encased iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4 models. Lyco promises to work with "slim line" cases and with bare iPhone 4s, the latter using rubber bumpers included in the package. It's sold in black, matching many third-party speakers with Universal Docks on top or in front.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
