STAMFORD, CONN. —
Industries unveiled its first JBL iPaddocking/
charging tabletop speaker, due in
March for $149.
The OnBeat loudspeaker docking station,
which can be used with any iPad, iPhone or
iPod device, enables users to stream Netflix,
watch YouTube, and Skype. However, users
cannot have Skype or Facetime audio conversations
when the iPad is docked, a Harman
spokeswoman told TWICE.
“Currently, Apple does not use the dock
connector as an option, and there is no microphone
on the OnBeat,” she added.
