Before I joined the world of Android, I used to own an iPhone 3GS. I’d had it for nearly a year and had bought a really expensive dock for it.
One thing that can be a barrier for entry when it comes to Android is losing those expensive accessories that blast out your portable sound into Home Cinema Centre epic-ness.
Enter the dockBoss+ from CableJive
The dockBoss+ is an elegant little cable that connects to the micro USB port and to the headphone jack of your Android device, it will then output that sound through a modified iPhone/iPod connector to play it through your iDock or even car stereo.
The micro USB connector part is where your Android device will draw it’s much needed power from and charge your phone while it’s pumping out sound from whatever iDock or iCompatible car stereo you own.
The connector will not start shipping until 28th September and is currently retailing for $29.95(USD) + $9.46 (USD) for standard postage.
There’s no news on whether this will be hitting Australian stores at the moment, but considering some of the ridiculous markups we see from our retailers, purchasing online is a preferable option.
I myself have already pre-ordered one and will give a follow up review of how well it works once it’s arrived.
So I recommend checking out the CableJive’s website and getting yourself the cheap solution to an expensive problem.
