Griffin Technology Announces Updates to Popular Accessories for iPod and iPhone
SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD 2009 – JANUARY 6, 2009 – Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod and iPhone, today announced its refreshed line of products to help consumers derive maximum enjoyment from their favorite iPod and iPhone. Griffin is showcasing five updated accessories, in addition to many other new products, at Macworld Expo 2009, booth #1902 in the South Hall.
“iPod and iPhone owners are constantly on the lookout for creative and helpful accessories,” said Paul Griffin, founder of Griffin Technology. “This year, we focused on updating our products, from FM transmitters to power solutions, to help our customers enjoy their iPod and iPhone in the car, at home and on the go.”
Updated products include:
TuneFlex AUX with SmartClick
Griffin’s premium in-car charge, mount & play solution now includes a wireless remote control with a magnetic holder that attaches to the driver’s steering wheel. SmartClick Remote allows drivers to safely access play controls without ever taking their eyes off the road or their hands off the wheel. TuneFlex's flexible steel neck and swiveling cradle positions the player in any desired location, and charges as it plays. Includes stereo AUX-in cable to connect iPod or iPhone to the car stereo.
iTrip Auto Universal Plus
Listening to virtually any MP3 player through the car radio's stereo speakers is a breeze with Griffin’s newly redesigned iTrip Auto Universal Plus. Just plug iTrip into the player's headphone jack, and enjoy your tunes through your FM radio. iTrip Auto Universal Plus even charges the player's battery through its convenient USB port. iTrip works with any FM frequency from 88.1 to 107.9, and Griffin-exclusive SmartScan technology makes for quick, easy one-click setup.
iTrip for iPod nano
Griffin’s popular iTrip for iPod nano is redesigned to match the sleek new looks of the 4th generation iPod nano. iTrip broadcasts to the nearest FM receiver – car radio, boombox, or home entertainment system – making it a quick and easy way to listen to iPod nano 4G. (It works with other iPod models, too, but is sized and shaped to match 4th generation iPod nano.)
TuneJuice for iPhone and iPod
More than just a battery extender, Griffin’s updated TuneJuice recharges iPhone and iPod in the field, using 4 AAA batteries (included). Just plug TuneJuice into virtually any dock connector iPod or iPhone to enjoy up to 24 hours of additional music, 6 hours of video, or 2 hours of talk time. TuneJuice is a must-have for air travel, camping, road trips, or just urban adventuring.
Elan Form Chrome for iPhone 3G
Griffin’s popular Elan Form for iPhone 3G now sports a sophisticated look with black leather and chrome trim. The slim, clipless design is built around an impact-resistant polycarbonate inner shell that snaps firmly around the device. An outer shell wraps the iPhone in top-grain black leather with hand-matched hides. The case includes a screen protector to guard against smudges, fingerprints, and scratches, and a premium cleaning cloth for proper care of your iPhone.
