iLuv does HD radio, with or without the iPod

Two new stereo alarm clocks are released, one with a dock and one without.


Everyone knows that there are virtually no products designed to work with the iPod, so iLuv has bravely decide to step in and fill the gaping void with an HD radio that includes a built-in dock for the media player. The i169 stereo can function as an alarm clock as well as receive HD transmissions, displaying song information and other data, though it looks fairly uninspired considering all the competition out there.

iLuv has made yet another bold move and produced a version that has no iPod dock whatsoever, providing the same functions as its sibling without the media player. The i168 does include a 3.5-millimeter jack to plug one in, however, so you won't have to go cold turkey.
