The folks over at the FCC have taken a look at the On Air Wireless dock from JBL, where this device will be different from the rest since it is the company’s first AirPlay-capable speaker dock. Basically, the On Air Wireless will enable users to either play from a docked iPhone or iPod, in addition to pushing audio over a Wi-Fi connection from the aforementioned devices, apart from playing nice with an iPad or computer. The network link will not mean it can stream Internet radio directly though as that will still require an external device. There is a fairly generous LCD display located on the dock that will show the current time, track info or current FM radio station. No idea on when this clock radio dock will hit the streets, but we shouldn’t be faulted if we expect JBL to tout this at CES next month. Shipping dates and pricing details are yet to be confirmed at press time.
