JBL announced at Macworld Expo on Tuesday the follow-up to the company’s popular On Stage and On Tour speaker products. The On Time not only houses an iPod allowing users to play songs from the device, but it also includes a radio, clock and dual alarm.
On Time incorporates the Apple iPod Universal Dock adapter and is compatible with most docking versions of the iPod, including the nano and 5G versions. If you don’t have a docking iPod, the On Time includes a stereo mini jack connection, so you can connect other devices like an iPod Shuffle or other MP3 player.
The On Time also has a backlit display with auto dimming, so when the lights go down, the display light dims accordingly.
JBL included a standard iPod connector in the back of the On Time, so you can connect it directly to your computer — when the iPod is in the device it can also sync to your computer. The iPod also charges while docked in the On Time.
The On Time is available in black or white and will cost $299.
