If you're not one for cute and cuddly audio systems, read on at your own peril.
Speakal, which not long ago brought us the iPig speaker dock system, is expanding its grip on animal-themed audio devices with the iPanda, a similar product in a less pink skin.
As its name suggests, the gadget broadcasts audio and charges iPods via a precious panda bear. Specifically, it has five speakers, including a 4-inch subwoofer, that deliver 25 watts of sound in 360 degrees. The compact iPanda connects to all iPods, plus other MP3 players, gaming consoles, mobile gaming devices, cell phones, desktop PCs, and laptops.
The product sells for $139.99, which doesn't seem like too much bamboo to fork over for a new electronic pet. The best part, of course, is that you control the volume by touching the ears. Fun, right?
