iHome Starts Shipping iW3 AirPlay Streaming Speaker

iHome, known for producing a range of different audio accessories for the iPad and the iPhone has a brand new AirPlay wireless stereo speaker system, the iW3 that comes equipped with a rechargeable battery.

The iW3 is able to stream wireless music from iTunes on any PC or Mac, or from an iDevice like an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, so it can be placed anywhere in the home.

This speaker connects to your home WiFi network, allowing it to control your iTunes library. It has a lithium-ion battery and a small, compact size, which means it is both portable and affordable. It comes in three different colors, including red, black, and gray.

A remote control is included with the speaker, which will allow you to pause/play, select music tracks, and control volume without having to access your device.

You can use AirPlay to play your music over the speakers, but it also supports USB docking, for both playback and charging.

This speaker works with the accompanying iHome app, iHome Set, which can be downloaded for free from the App Store.

You can currently pre-order your own iW3 AirPlay wireless speaker for $199.99 from the iHome website.
