iHome iDM5 Executive Work Station
The name iHome often conjures up iPod and iPhone docks as well as iOS-powered speaker systems for me most of the time, and I am not quite sure whether the same applies to you or not. Well, this time around, iHome’s latest release that they call the iHome iDM5 Executive Work Station has every intention to make tablets as well as Bluetooth-enabled smartphones all the more functional, where it comes with a rather compact footprint so that no additional clutter is added to your work area.
Not only that, there is also a full size QWERTY keyboard to keep company the built-in speakers, where other hardware specifications include a microphone and a couple of USB ports that allows you to juice up two power thirsty devices simultaneously. Those who have long grappled with a sense of lack of space and want to get more organized at work will definitely do well to take a closer look at the iHome iDM5 Executive Work Station.
Evan Stein, Director of Marketing, iHome, said, “In addition to using their tablets and smartphones for entertainment purposes, people are relying on them to perform more intricate office tasks as well. Whether video conferencing, typing up reports, making calls or streaming music, the iDM5 is the perfect product for the multi-tasker.”
For those of us who made it to CES 2012, chances are you would have come upon the iHome iDM5 Executive Work Station since it was a 2012 CE Innovations Honoree. This full sized, ergonomically angled QWERTY keyboard speaker system will allow you to type away on your tablet or smartphone in a comfortable manner, all the while ensuring you remain entertained by streaming your favorite music over a wireless Bluetooth connection. Less cables means less hassle and mess to the eyes, not to mention a far cleaner work area.
As for the built-in mic, it will enable you to use the unit as a speakerphone for video conferencing purposes, and if you prefer to play your choice of music from any other audio device, you can always do so via the universal 3.5mm aux line-in jack. Expect to fork out $129.95 for the iHome iDM5 Executive Work Station.
