Griffin is turning out to be a little Apple. The company has been churning out really cool looking items that make you want to buy them the moment you see them. They might have a little Jonathan Ive at their employ.
Anyway, one of Griffin’s cool looking gadgets will now be shipped to stores. The Evolve is an iPod dock/speaker set that is one of the best looking I’ve seen in years. As mentioned, it is both an iPod Dock and also a charging station for the two speakers. The cool thing about the Evolve is that after charging, the speakers can be detached from the, ehem, “mother unit” and it will crank up sounds from as far away as 100 feet, even through walls. Yes, my iPod faithful, these nifty speakers work wirelessly. How cool is that! A single charge of the speakers means ten hours of music goodness.
The Evolve really lives up to its name as an evolution of the basic iPod speaker/dock paradigm. Users can even buy additional speakers and use it with the same mother unit, allowing you to pepper your whole house with speakers if you are so inclined (or you have the funds).
The Griffin Evolve will be selling for $300 — and I’ve just added a new item on my Christmas list.
