The last time we were discussing Logitech, it was in regards to the unveiling of nine new webcams. Now the company has shifted our focus to their new iPod speaker docks, as they have two new ones that we want to let you in on. The S325i (pictured above) is iPhone-compatible, and powered by a rechargeable battery good for 20 hours. The S125i is powered by 4 AA batteries, but doesn’t seem to support the iPhone. Both of these will be available later this month, with the S325i retailing for $129, and the S125i for $69.

Acura is looking to upgrade the experience for customers by adding a few oft-requested features as standard, starting with their 2010 lineup. Look forward to Bluetooth, XM Radio, and even iPod connectivity to all be included. This is definitely a sign of the times, as just about even mobile phone sold today supports Bluetooth, and that can only result in a bit more safety on the road.

Here’s an interesting stereo from JVC known as NX-TC5, which includes the usual such as an AM/FM tuner, iPod dock, and a CD player to “rip audio to MD or USB stick at 4x speeds.”
Some of the more unusual features include the movable front-panel and a motion-activated 4.3-inch display. There is 512MB on board for photos, but the video playback uses a built-in 1 Seg digital TV tuner or WMV video stored on USB media. The TC5 should launch in Japan late next month for ¥62,000 (about $655) or ¥52,000 (about $549) if you want the NX-TC3, which lacks MD support.

Bowers and Wilkins has long been known for their stunning audiophile loudspeaker and home theater equipment so it’s no surprise that their foray into the iPod/iPhone speaker dock territory is an impressive one. The new Zeppelin dock features a subwoofer and two midrange/tweeters all in a single compact unit. The odd football shape does indeed bring to mind it’s airship namesake with a look that is sure to draw a second look for passers by. The downside - it’s $600; or $200 more than you spent on the iPhone that goes in it.
In the video we show off the product, and even demonstrate how it handles an iPhone taking a call while in use. Amazingly, there is no GSM interference to be found. Definitely a plus.
