The Altec Lansing inMotion Classic is a portable speaker system made for the Apple iPod and iPhone. Retailing for $149 and due out in fall of 2009, the inMotion Classic is a stylish solution for taking your tunes on the go.
Included with the inMotion Classic is a remote control, power adapter (not pictured), and two dock inserts made for the iPod Nano and iPod Touch or iPhone. The remote control includes buttons for volume, skip, play/pause, mute, source, power, expander effect, menu, and radio presets.
The front of the inMotion Classic includes a universal dock sandwiched between a pair of 3-inch speakers. A black-metal speaker grille covers the face, with the exception of the dock and a 2.5-inch plastic-covered LCD in the top right corner.
With the kickstand out, the inMotion Classic's dramatic lean is accentuated by its deliberately angular design. The kickstand has a sturdy feel and rotates on hinges that lock the bar securely in one of three positions (down, back, or up).
The back of the inMotion Classic includes a cubby slot where the remote control can be stored out of the way. The remote doesn't lock into the slot, however, so you'll need to keep an eye on it if you plan to toss the speaker into a backpack.
