One of our readers, Todd M., pointed out that an iHome iW2 has shown up on Amazon.com. The listing was removed, but now it’s back! To add to that it’s available for preorder at Future Shop with an expected ship date of December 16, 2011. We might see these in time for Christmas.
To refresh your memories, the iW2 was iHome’s second AirPlay enabled speaker. As you can see from the picture it’s a similar form factor to the iW1, but it lacks the portability since it’s an AC only unit. It also uses regular buttons instead of the capacitive touch panel.
