Pocket-Lint: Altec Lansing recently unveiled a new array of products at the IFA 2010 tech show in Berlin, and among the goodies announced was the Octiv Dual 202 Audio Dock. We were lucky enough to be given a sneaky peek at the compact system, which is certified to work with both the iPhone and iPod.
Altec Lansing knows speakers, and some of their products can take a real beating like the Life Jacket. The BoomJacket speaker is their latest creation, and it is just as rugged as its predecessor while offering up double the battery life.
The Altec Lansing BoomJacket speaker is tough, but not just the regular kind of tough that lets you drop it from waist high. The portable speaker has a rubberized skin that helps absorb any bumps it might take, while also helping it obtain the IP67 waterproof rating. Rain, dust and dirt are no match for the BoomJacket, and its size (7.5” x 3.123” x 2.825”) makes it easy to tote around.
Pocket-Lint: When we think of Altec Lansing it's car tech that immediately comes to mind. But things are a-changin'. Having just been acquired by an investment company, Altec Lansing was showing off some concept audio devices at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.
