Only days after i wrote about the update on imminent launch of the iHome iW1 following a year of waiting, information has surfaced that iHome plans to launch their much awaited iW1 AirPlay speaker on 31st August, and it is already appearing on Amazon UK.
It is Zatz not funny that is reporting that the iHome iW1 will start shipping on the 31st August through the iHome website with a price point of $300 (£300). After a quick check on Amazon UK i found the iHome iW1 listed there as well as ‘out of stock’ with a price of £299.99.
iHome was among the first to announce they were releasing an AirPlay speaker following Apple announcing the new iOS feature, but the speaker that was expected to hit markets in time for Christmas shopping a year ago has seen a lot of delays, and has been beaten to the market by amongst other the B&W Zeppelin Air and the Philips Fidelio Soundsphere.
If the information is correct it looks like iHome will be giving a free gift with the purchase of the iHome iW1 through their website when you use the promo code “iW1gift”.
