The PlayStation Vita may not have the electric longevity to replace your portable music player, but Nyko figures there's no good reason it can't take up the role of rocking your bedroom. The accessory outfit's stereo speaker charging dock for the Sony's fledgling handheld hasn't changed much since we saw it at CES, save for the fact that it's available now. $30 turns your Vita into the most overpowered alarm clock (assuming you download the upcoming app from the PSN store) your nightstand has ever seen. What of the PS Vita Power Grip? A Nyko representative tell us it's on the way, but doesn't have anything to announce at this time. Read on for the charging dock's official press release.

Stereo Charging Dock for Vita In GameStop Stores Now
LOS ANGELES – April 24, 2012 – Nyko Technologies®, the leading videogame peripherals manufacturer, is now shipping the Speaker Stand for PS Vita, the latest in its line of accessories for the handheld console. The stand is
a charging dock featuring stereo speakers that keep your Vita ready for action while offering dynamic sound for music and movies. Unveiled at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Speaker Stand for PS Vita
