San Diego – Grace Digital’s Matchstick Speaker Dock for the Kindle Fire tablet has become the first audio product certified under Amazon’s Made For Kindle program, Grace Digital announced.
The $129-suggested Matchstick, already available on Amazon.com and Grace’s website, docks with the side-by-side 3.5mm audio jack and MiniUSB charging port at the bottom of the Kindle Fire, a Grace spokesman said. Power is transmitted through the USB, and audio is transmitted through the 3.5mm jack. The dock also features a button that turns the docked Kindle on and off without having to undock the tablet, he said. The Matchstick’s cradle, which rotates from portrait to landscape, is also sized just for the 7-inch Kindle Fire, he said.
“This is the only dock that was designed from the bottom up with the Kindle Fire in mind,” he noted.
