Android users tend to snear at iPhone owners.  But it’s not superiority, it’s jealously, right?  After all, those with an iOS device are not only entitled to AirPlay tech as a defualt feature on their device, a more vast and robust app selection, but all the awesome speaker docks.  So why can’t Bose, iHome and Philips get on board with a compatible Android dock?  Probably because products such as the dockBoss+ already exist.

The the dockBoss+ connects not only Android phones, but any phone to any 30-pin dock.  A mini-USB port draws and transmits power to your device while a headphone jack transmits the audio.

Now you’re probably wondering why anyone would own a 30-pin dock if they have an Android device.  Aside from the greater likelihood of a family member or friend owning an Apple specific speaker dock, there is the possiblity that you might have owned an iOS device in a previous life.  No sense in throwing away a perfectly good speaker, right?

The dockBoss+ will go on sale on September 28th for $30.

This is the second iteration of the cable.  The dockBoss is currently on sale, but doesn’t include a mini-usb plug.
