New iHome AirPlay Speakers: iW2 and iW3 Join the iW1
iHome just released two new models to it’s AirPlay speaker lineup ahead of CES. The iW2 and iW3 join the iW1 as the latest iHome AirPlay speakers.
The iW1 is the flagship with the iW2 and iW3 featuring the same minimal design, but instead of a capacitive touch panel they use good old fashioned buttons. The iW2 and iW3 do not feature a rechargeable battery and instead plug into an AC outlet.
The iW2 looks like a smaller version of the iW1 while the iW3 has a square, tall design. Wi-Fi, Ethernet ports, USB inputs and auxiliary inputs are shared between the two units.
Pricing is expected to be around $200US with a launch in summer or fall of 2011.
Variety is good. I’m very anxious to try these out!
Summer or Fall? Pre-annoucing new products when they haven’t even shipped the original yet?
Getting tired of AirVaporWare. Want to buy.
Agreed! iHome you string me along too long and my eyes start to wander. That Zepplins catchin’ my eye. Ohhhh lookie at that JBL!
where are the outdoor AirPlay speakers?! i want to pump music to my backyard during bbqs n stuff..
Yea, and a waterproof model for the bathroom.
Does anybody know any new information about these products?
Release date etc.
I was expecting it to arrive months ago and I haven’t heard any new info since.
The only change/update I’ve noticed is iHome moving the iW1 to their homepage… is this a sign?
Only one problem with these attractive machines… YOU CANT BUY THEM ANYWHERE. (i live in denmark)
Hi Morten, that’s too bad but you can get yourself the Philips AD7000W at the Denmark Apple Store.
@Morten : Sure you can, got two iw1s from computersalg.dk. Even cheaper than Amazon and free delivery for 2k. Awesome product that most of my friends arealso getting now 🙂
