Samsung and Apple may be at each others' throats in the courtroom, but the two will be getting along just fine with Sammy's new speaker docks. Sprinkled in with the availability details of its 2012 Smart TV lineup, the company's prepped a quartet of stereo speaker-systems affixed with dual-docks f

It's not what it looks like. We know, we know: it would seem that Engadget traveled all the way to Mobile World Congress only to get hands-on with a desktop phone, but fortunately for our pride, this device is quite the opposite. Though that earpiece would suggest otherwise, Invoxia's AudiOffice i

The options for Samsung Galaxy Tab speaker docks are a bit limited, especially if you're looking to make use of its proprietary dock port instead of a Bluetooth connection. Earlier this year, iLuv outted its iMM514 for Sammy slates, enabling you to jam some Kelly Clarkson and charge the device at t

It's been a few months since we first caught wind of Sirius XM's $250 Lynx satellite radio receiver, and today at CES we finally got to see it in person. It's a solidly-built device that's about the same size as a 5th generation iPod, has an 1150 mAh battery with a microSD slot underneath a soft to

LG wasn't very forthcoming with details when it announced its new AirPlay speaker dock back in November, so here at CES 2012 we decided we'd stop by LG's booth to dig deeper and see it for ourselves. It looks like a foot square black Rubik's cube, with glossy and matte exterior squares alternatin

If you'll recall, it was back at CES when we realized that AirPlay devices would be \"set to explode\" by this year's end -- and it's certainly proving true as a storm of new speakers have hit the market over the last few months. Of all the speakers we'd spotted on the show floor, however, a

Well, AT&T doesn't seem too keen on keeping any secrets when it comes to its SoundStream iOS speaker dock. On its way through the FCC today, the little iOS speaker station will act as both a charger and beat blaster for you iPod or iPhone and has Bluetooth baked in. It also offers FM radio, a

We've seen a number of companies put a modern spin on the venerable boombox, but nothing quite like this new iP4 speaker dock from iHome. While it's unmistakingly a boombox, it looks more like a circa-1980s attempt to create a futuristic boombox than simply a modern boombox -- an unused prop from

The comparisons between Siri and HAL 9000 were pretty tough to avoid, and the folks at ThinkGeek have now come through to do what they do best: take things to a ridiculous extreme. In this case, that comes in the form of the IRIS 9000, a familiar-looking fellow that doubles as a dock for your iPh

Not enamored by any upcoming AirPlay-enabled HiFi systems? Audyssey's curiously square Lower East Side Audio Dock Air could be worth a shot. This is the second wireless speaker from the company, which last year used its audio know-how for the South of Market Bluetooth Dock. The LESADA's light o
