We're a tough crew to impress when it comes to iPod speaker docks. Fortunately, Altec Lansing's latest offering, the inMotion Classic ($149), has more than a few things going for it.

For starters, this thing is iPhone-certified, so there's no worrying about annoying compatibility messages each time you dock your iPhone. It's also portable, with a design that folds up and uses an internal rechargeable battery for up to five hours of unplugged music. Throw in a built-in FM radio with station presets, a remote control, aux input, and a stylish design, and now you've got us excited.

Of course, the true test of any speaker system is how it sounds. Stay tuned for some hands-on photos and first impressions later Tuesday. Those already looking to buy this angular boombox beauty will need to wait until late September to pick one up.
