Rotating iHome dock rolls over for the iPhone

Alarm clock will rotate when the unit is turned on its side to watch video on the phone or iPod Touch.

iHome

Call us shortsighted, but we'd always assumed that people would watch video on a mobile phone or portable player only while on the go, not at home or on the desktop--if at all. But if recent products are any indication, that doesn't seem to be the case.

There have been an increasing number of docks and speakers for the iPhoneand iPod Touch, for instance, that are meant to accommodate their displays in a horizontal viewing position . The latest example comes from iHome in the form of its "iH41B Rotating Alarm Clock."

Not only is this gadget designed to be turned on its side for watching video on the players in its dock, according to 7Gadgets, but its clock will also automatically rotate to match its new position. Or, if you're at home, you can just skip the portable altogether and watch a Blu-ray DVD.
