Philips is opting out of CES this coming year and as a result they’ve already unveiled a few of their products for ’09.
Let’s start with the Philips Streamium Network Music Players NP2500 and NP2900 (pictured above):
In essence it’s an Internet radio with a relatively large and easy to read color LCD display. It includes a remote and can pull music from PCs on the network or login to pay services such as Rhapsody. The NP2900 features a 4 speaker system as oppose to 2. Price is $220 and $320 respectively.
Next up is the Philips Docking Entertainment System DC350:
You guessed it, it a dock for your iPhone or iPod. Apparently the calendar can sync with your PC and it include some sort of Bluetooth or conference call system. It also includes a remote and will cost $150.
Not last and not least is the Philips DLO iBoom JukeBox:
This one is an iPod dock plus speakers, but what’s really sweet is the included RF remote with LCD display, which is almost the size of the iPod and makes me think that Audioengine’s W2 would be a better bet. Price: $200
Last is the Philips Multimedia Speakers 2.1 SPA5300:
Magnetically shielded computer speakers with a sans grill look and wired remote. They look pretty feature void, but when it comes to speakers it’s all about sound. No word on price.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
