JBL OnBeat: New Speaker Dock for Apple iPad introduced

By Chris Cook - Mar 29, 2011

If you are looking for a nice speaker dock for your Apple devices then look no further as JBL has introduced a new device called the OnBeat speaker dock. It will dock your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

It is the company’s first dock that is compatible with the iPad and although it is designed to hold the largest of these Apple devices there is no word on whether it will also dock the iPad 2. Once device are firmly docked they can be rotated for portrait or landscape preference.

Not only does this device provide music from the Apple devices attached, but it is also capable of streaming video content such as YouTube and Netflix to your television via a video output. While the devices are docked the speaker will also charge them.

It also has a 3.5mm auxiliary jack, an infra-red remote that allows you to scroll through your devices menus from up to 4.6m away and a USB port. As for the actual speaker specs itself, it has computer optimized DSP equalization for dual Phoenix full-range transducers.

If you are interested in getting one of these it will set you back $149.95. More details about the JBL OnBeat can be found at the JBL site by clicking the link. Let us know what you think of the speaker dock in the comments below.

    This dock does not allow the iPad to rotate to the landscape position!

    Seems to me to be a non starter because of this.
