iHome iW4 brings AirPlay to the bedroom

iHome iW4 Airplay alarm clock speaker dock

iHome is a regular contributor of new iPod speaker docks and audio solutions at CES and this year will be no different as they are set to bring 3 new alarm clock docks to market, including their first Airplay enabled alarm speaker dock for the bedroom with the iHome iW4.

Last year it was all about their first AirPlay speaker in the iHome iW1 and this year it could end up being all about the iW4, bringing wireless AirPlay streaming to our bedrooms. With built in WiFi and ethernet connection, 20W of power output, and SRS TruBass sound enhancement, this could just be the companion that enhances the presence of your iOS device in the bedroom.

Whilst AirPlay streaming might be the key new feature in the iHome iW4, it also brings all the basics for an alarm clock dock, with a docking station that supports iPod, iPhone and iPad, dual programmable alarms, FM radio, gradual wake feature, and wake/sleep to AirPlay.

There is no word on UK price and release date of the iHome iW4, which in the U.S is set to $269.99. Hopefully iHome will be able to get the iW4 out a big quicker than the iW1, which took a good 8-9 months before it was available in store shelves.

By the way, at CES last year iHome also showed off two other AirPlay speakers in the iHome iW2 and iW3, which are yet to materialize. Perhaps they have chosen to just skip to number 4 instead.
