XtremeMac on Friday announced a complete line of products especially designed for Apple’s iPod nano. The line includes an FM transmitter, portable speakers, cases and more. XtremeMac says the new products will be shipping now through the first week of November.
AirPlay2 is a new version of XtremeMac’s FM transmitter designed to work with the iPod nano, but also compatible with iPods and iPod minis. The FM transmitter supports three programmable station presets, Mono Mode for better reception and a blue display with white characters. Unlike its predecessor, the AirPlay2 uses the Dock Connector and has a pass-through female Dock Connector for connecting to car chargers or other products. It will ship in black or white finishes for US$59.95.
The $119.95 MicroBlast is a portable speaker system designed specifically for the iPod nano. It lets you play and charge the nano simultaneously and outputs three watts per channel over four speakers. It also includes a travel pouch and interchangeable black and white frames. It’s powered by an AC adapter or four AA batteries.
