Default Sonos Launches Wireless Dock for iPods and iPhones.

<p><em>"Sonos, the leading developer of wireless multi-room music systems for the home, today announced that the Sonos Wireless Dock (WD100), an accessory to the award-winning Sonos Multi-Room Music System, is now available for purchase. The Sonos Wireless Dock is available for $119 at all Sonos authorized retailers and at www.sonos.com."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1288191895.usr15670.jpg" /></p><p>This reminds me of the Creative X-Fi wireless docks for the iPods. Whatever happened to them? I just checked on Creative's websites and they're gone. These seem handy, but does anyone really use them? Integrated speaker docks are more convenient, and for quality who connects a media player to their hi-fi systems anyway? Press release after the break.</p><p><MORE /><p><strong>THE SONOS WIRELESS DOCK IS NOW AVAILABLE</strong></p><p><strong><em>New accessory wirelessly streams digital music from iPod or iPhone to every room of the home</em></strong></p><p><strong>SANTA BARBARA, CA &ndash; October 26, 2010 &ndash;&nbsp;</strong><a href="http://www.sonos.com/" target="_blank">Sonos</a>,&nbsp;<a></a><a></a>the&nbsp;<a></a><a></a>leading developer of wireless multi-room music systems for the home, today announced that the Sonos Wireless Dock (WD100), an accessory to the award-winning Sonos Multi-Room Music System, is now available for purchase.&nbsp;&nbsp;The Sonos Wireless Dock is available for $119 at all Sonos authorized retailers and at&nbsp;<a href="http://www.sonos.com/" target="_blank">www.sonos.com</a>.</p><p>With the Sonos Wireless Dock, you can now&nbsp;play all of the music from an iPod or iPhone in every room of the house while simultaneously charging your device.
