There are a ton of iPod speaker docks out there, but at least this one has some style and huge speakers. Bang & Olufsen has unveiled the BeoSound 8 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod.

In case you want to use a source other than the aforementioned Apple trio, you can connect your computer and other MP3 players via the auxiliary line-in and USB ports. Even though the BeoSound 8 is described as light and can probably be moved easily from room to room, there is a remote control included in the box, and you can stream wirelessly over the same network thanks to integrated support for Apple Airport Express.

Outfitted in black or white, the BeoSound 8 will be available worldwide this month. Pricing hasn't been announced yet.

To see the BeoSound 8 in action, check out the slightly-overdramatic yet entertaining promo video below:

    Really amazing design but we have all come to that expect from B&O. I think I saw Madonna wearing one of these some years ago, its funny how things come back around... ;) <br>John<br><a href="http://www.wizardofipad.com" target="_blank">Wizofipad</a>
