Griffin Technology Debuts Two Revolutionary Dock Devices
Nashville, TN — November 4, 2010 — Griffin Technology Inc., maker of innovative solutions for everyday life, today unveiled their next generation of compact, multi-use docks. AirCurve® Play brings the groundbreaking acoustic simplicity of Griffin's original AirCurve to iPhone 4, and PowerDock® Dual allows simultaneous charging of iPad and iPhone (or iPod).
"Simple solutions yield useful results, especially when it comes to supplementing life with a mobile device," said George Campbell, Director of Industrial Design at Griffin. "Whether you are looking for a portable way to listen to music from your iPhone 4 or an easier charging setup for your iPad and iPhone, AirCurve Play and PowerDock Dual are the docking solutions people are looking for."
AirCurve Play makes the speaker of your iPhone 4 10 decibels louder, and it works without batteries, cables, or power adapters. Just slip your iPhone into AirCurve's rubber dock gasket, and your iPhone 4 becomes the perfect portable audio/video conference phone, video viewer, and self-contained music player...even the perfect beside alarm clock.
AirCurve is a cleverly designed acoustic amplifier that collects the sound from the built-in speaker of your iPhone, amplifies it in a coiled waveguide within the base, and projects it out into the room. Though AirCurve, itself, uses no power, it features a pass-through slot that allows you to insert your own cable so you can charge and sync while you listen. AirCurve's transparent polycarbonate body lets you appreciate the graceful curves of the waveguide inside that do all the work. An adjustable wire stand lets you position your iPhone for landscape or portrait viewing from multiple angles.
PowerDock Dual is not just another charging dock for iPad and iPhone; it's also a place for your stuff. The contents of your pockets—your keys, change, guitar picks—they all go in PowerDock Dual's built-in valet dish, while your iPad and iPhone (or iPod) both get a seat of honor on the built-in charging docks.
You get an unobstructed view of the screen while your iPad (and iPhone or iPod) gets its battery charged. Even the speakers of your device are unobstructed so you can listen while you watch. It's perfect for bedside entertainment or for a quick reference on your countertop. PowerDock Dual features flexible dock connectors with low-profile backrests to support your devices while minimizing wear and tear on the connectors. An included AC adapter provides the 10 watts needed to charge your iPad, and 5 watts of fast charging for iPhone or iPod.
PowerDock Dual puts your iPad and your iPhone or iPod there at a glance and ready to go; all your most important stuff, right where you need it. And it even keeps track of your car keys.
Pricing and Availability
AirCurve Play, $19.99, is now available at major retailers everywhere. PowerDock Dual, $59.99, is now available at Apple Retail Stores. Both are available online at www.griffintechnology.com.
