Altec Lansing’s inMotion system provides iPod users with an easily portable audio system to take with them when they travel. Now Altec Lansing has done the same for iPod mini users with their new
iMmini. Forty-one percent smaller than inMotion, the iMmini features digital amplification, neodymium micro drivers and “MaxxBass” technology for US$129.95.
The iMmini measures 7 x 4.4 x 1 inches (17.78 x 11.18 x 2.54 cm), and features two 1-inch and two 18-mm micro drivers behind perforated aluminum grilles. The digital 4-watt amplifier works with four AA batteries for up to 24 hours. The iMmini sports a front-mounted docking bay and can be used with other audio devices with an included 3.5mm auxiliary input cable. An AC power supply is also included. Altec lansing expects the iMmini to ship “in late summer.” It will be available through Apple retail store locations and through Apple’s online store as well.
