Chinon AVi iPod dock with built-in digital TV tuner


I’m not sure of the widespread need for a device like this…but it was too cool to not post. It’s an iPod dock with a wealth of features including a TV Tuner. Not sure why you would need it….but better to have and not need than need and not have right?!



There’s a whole lot of convergence going on with the $200 Chinon AVi. You’ve got an iPod dock, 7-inch digital TV that doubles as an iPod video screen, music player, FM radio, and alarm clock all contained within something the size of a toaster. As with all heavily converged devices there’s the risk of being a jack-of-all trades, but master of none. Does Chinon’s product break that mold or does it suffer the same fate as most others?
