Sonoro has been hawking its appropriately named "cubo" clock radio in Europe for a while now, a fashionable little beast that comes in a wide variety of colors (seriously, check the gallery) and packs a bassy punch. CES 2008 marks the German firm's first official entrance into the US market, where it will be first selling the original cubo -- just your standard AM / FM / CD device -- and then following on with a series of more interesting devices later in the year. We had a chance to check out the new models, the cubo elements and cubo fusion, and we're dazzled by their glossy sheen, giant, HAL-like controls, and bright, attractive displays. The cubo elements will be available in both AM / FM and FM / internet radio versions, the latter of which is compatible with an external dock for controlling and charging the iPod of your choice (though the AM / FM model has an AUX in, so you can still pipe in your external tunes that way). The cubo fusion ups the ante with an integrated iPod dock -- no external accessory necessary -- and a CD player, but loses the internet radio which could be a deal breaker for some folks. Have a gander at the gallery here, and notice the white gloves all the Sonoro peeps are wearing -- they take that black lacquer finish pretty seriously!
