Harman, aka Harman and Kardon, has just dropped its new JBL speaker dock that fashions such wonderful features as AirPlay support and an LCD display. While some may question the color LCD due to the iPhone or iPod docked just above it, do note that the JBL On Air Wireless also packs in an FM radio (what, no AM? ) with RDS and an alarm clock. See, you do need the display.
JBL also relies on the HALO for this new dock sound blaster. HALO, or horizontal acoustic level optimization, “delivers clean, powerful sound that JBL products are known for,” per the press release below.
If you didn’t catch the wireless in the product name, yes, that does mean it has built in Wi-Fi and can connect to your PC or Mac’s iTunes library and stream audio to the JBL directly without the need of your iPhone or iPod, hence the AirPlay.
Grab yours for your Apple beloved device from Best Buy or Apple for a mere $349.99 and fill your bedroom with tunes from your iTunes or iDevice attached player today.
HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE: HAR), today announced the new JBL On Air™ Wireless AirPlay® speaker dock, the newest in the JBL® lineup to provide music lovers an even more seamless music experience within the home. With AirPlay technology built in, the JBL On Air Wireless lets you play music from your iTunes® library on a Mac or a PC, and from an iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® device over your existing Wi-Fi® network. Users will enjoy album artwork and song information on the bright color display, and can use the included remote control to play and pause music, as well as navigate to next and previous tracks. AirPlay requires iTunes 10.1 or later and iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 4.2 or later.
Three advanced JBL transducers deliver rich, full-spectrum sound uniformly across a wide-listening area. Distinct stereo imaging is often less than ideal with desktop sound systems, but the JBL On Air Wireless dock’s unique HALO (horizontal acoustic level optimization) design delivers clean, powerful sound that JBL products are known for. It also employs proprietary JBL technology – digital signal processing – to maximize sound quality and output under any listening conditions.
“Since the unveiling of our very first iPod dock, HARMAN has always been at the forefront of creating the most cutting-edge products for consumers,” said David Slump, president, HARMAN Consumer Division. “With the new JBL On Air Wireless speaker dock, JBL will set the standard again by introducing a solution for music lovers to store, access and listen to their music content for an even greater seamless music experience within the home.”
Pricing and Availability
The JBL On Air Wireless speaker dock will be available in April 2011 for $349 MSRP at Best Buy and Apple online and retail store locations throughout the U.S. To learn more, visit http://www.onair.jbl.com.

Fulton Innovation, the creator and exclusive licensor of eCoupled intelligent wireless power, will be giving visitors to CES a glimpse into the future of wireless power with new and intriguing applications of the technology. The company will be showing wireless power demonstrations in automotive, retail packaging, and consumer devices. A taste of what’s in store for CES attendees can be seen in a video at http://bit.ly/ecoupledCES and more details will be available on December 27th online at www.ecoupled.com/ces.
While full details of the demonstrations will not be released until January, the key draw to the booth will be an ultra-high power application of wireless power charging an electric vehicle (EV). The retail packaging demonstration will show a very low cost version of wireless power where the coils and electronics can be printed directly onto the packaging and can drive a number of package features that benefit both manufacturers and consumers alike .
All low-powered demonstrations at the Fulton booth meet the new Qi wireless power standard from the Wireless Power Consortium which was launched in July 2010.
As more and more mobile devices become Internet savvy, the demand for true wireless broadband has become great. All the cellular carriers have been making noise of how fast its network are, with the latest horn tooting coming from Verizon with the release of LTE, the so-called 4G broadband, last week. Yet, while Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, have all been trying to make old phone equipment provide data connectivity at fast speeds, one company has been rolling out a massive wireless broadband campaign of itself for 2010. Clear, the new wireless broadband brand of Clearwire, has been pushing its WiMax, 802.16, technology all over the country. Finishing up a year long expansion here in Sacramento just recently near SvenOnTech headquarters, Clear has already signed up over 2 million customers to it’s 4G offering nationwide. To insure those in California’s state capitol have a good amount of high-speed Internet where ever they may be within the area, Clear has put up 177 towers, like the one pictured here, throughout Sacramento with 300 to be activated in the near future, Amir P. Khorram, General Manager at Clear, told me on a chilly Tuesday morning at Clear’s Sacramento office just blocks from Cal Expo. “Finally something else than Comcast and Surewest,” Khorram told me with smile indicating that customers now can go beyond the local broadband giants. By the end of Clear, “Will have turned up 45 cities in 2010,” Debra Havins, PR Manager at Clearwire, told me over an email. With just a few weeks left in the year, Havins refined, “We have three more to go: SF, Denver & Bridgeport, CT,” making the 45 cities for the year. Besides Sacramento, some of the largest cities lit up this year consisted of: Washington DC, Boston, LA, Minneapolis, Miami, NYC, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Nashville and Houston. Clearly, a large array of geography of 4G.
Khorram invited me to the top of Clear’s building on Howe to take a firsthand look at what makes Clear work. Overlooking the Arden section of Sacramento with Downtown easily in eyes reach, Clear’s Ric Karau, Lead Field Technician, showed off the directional antennas mounted on three separate panels across the four-story buildings roof. Khorram explained that these antennas, linked to a nearby wire cabinet, can literally be set up in hours expanding Clear’s 4G network much quicker than a cellular carrier could ever hope to produce. When Karau showed off the wire cabinet (pictured below,) I was impressed by the set up. Packed with a couple of batteries for about 4 hours of power – more than enough time to set up temporary generators – both Ethernet and fiber switches, and a log book, Clear isn’t skimming on the equipment. While simple in words, the technology is nothing short of top-notch and powerful. Unlike the cellular networks, Clear’s 4G network never succumbs to user overload slowing the users bandwidth. In other words, it doesn’t matter if one or one hundred people are on the 4G network, everyone connected will enjoy the same quick speed between 3 to 6 Mbps (on average) with bursts beyond 10 Mbps. Clear is able to one-up Verizon and its LTE operating on the, “2.5 GHz band and we have more than 120 megahertz of spectrum per market in that band, more than any other wireless carrier,” Havins explained. While Verizon has just announced and started its 4G roll-out, Clear will, again, finish the year with 45 cities already streaming Netflix, Hulu, and the Pittsburgh Steelers game from NFL.com. (What, not everyone is a Steelers fan like me? )
I had an opportunity to test the 4G network with Sierra Wireless’ USB multi-band modem. The modem changes seamlessly to 3G if a 4G signal can not be found. Through partnership with Sprint, Clear can diversify its reach to areas that yet have to become bathed in real broadband coverage. As I drove south on California Highway 99 from Cal Expo, the signal was spotty at times. Once I crossed US 50, however, I had 75% or more 4G signal all the way to Elk Grove’s first exit south of Elk Grove Blvd. In my tests (SpeedTest.net result) in strong 4G areas, I easily neared 10 Mbps time after time. When I was at 75% or less, the speeds were closer to 2 Mbps. Uploads never topped 1 Mbps which is the only area Verizon’s LTE trumps Clear with 3 – 5 Mbps upload speeds.
I spoke to Khorram about Clearwire’s earlier issues with blocking VoIP and other ports related to bandwidth leeching such as bittorrent to which he responded that Clear does not block any ports. Users both mobile and home can enjoy true broadband speeds without a wires. Sadly, the cellular industry finds the new market of mobile broadband as an opportunity to make gobs of money with tricks of monthly caps and high prices for exceeding the ceiling. Thankfully, Clear is taking a different route with charging only $45 per month for unlimited bandwidth. While this is at about the cost of cable or DSL, there is no one offering such rates for wireless at these speeds. You can’t take your cable or DSL box on the road on your family vacation and continue to enjoy quick Internet surfing in the hotel, avoiding costly and slow connections there, as you can with one of Clear’s many portable modem offerings. To me, Clear really is really the only choice for your mobile and home user outside of cable and DSL reach. I’m not the only one that thinks Clear has a big future as Clearwire was named “The Top 10 Richest Venture-Backed Companies Of All Time” by the Wall Street Journal in June of this year raising $1,299.50 million dollars since 2003. That’s more than double the worlds most popular web destination Facebook and nearly twice that of economy cellular carrier MetroPCS Communications. It seems there are many in the financial world that believe Clearwire is a hot ticket. Those of us in the in tech field love the added competition since the cellular world acts much like airline industry coping each others rates thus creating an oligopoly. I know that I am very excited about Clear and feel that there finally is a real wireless broadband answer. Clearly, Clear has made it’s mark.
Verizon showcases its new announcement with a video explaining all the bells and whistles of LTE but it is at the 2:35 mark (view) of the video that is of interest. Lindsay Notwell, Executive Director, 4G LTE Startegy and Planning, talks about “connected cars” with a video shot of an iPhone 4 running onStar’s app. Now while this could be just a still shot pulled from GMs site and nothing more than that, wouldn’t Verizon at least wish to show off one of its phones? With the ability of any phone to connect to a FordSync equipped vehicle, for example, Verizon could have easily picked up on some Ford marketing for a shot to better fit the Verizon Wireless line of handsets. Instead, the hottest smartphone on the market only available on its competitor network was shown. Mmmm.
So, is this just a mere oversight on Verizon or a hint that the iPhone 4 is just around the corner? I believe this is just another tea leave exposing that indeed, Verizon and Apple will be soon announcing the iPhone 4 coming to the largest network in the United States. My guess is we will Steve Jobs pulling his infamous One More Thing at the iPad 2G announcement and bring out on stage Verizon’s CEO Ivan Seidenberg to make the announcement this January.
Yes, the new year is looking mighty good.
Verizon Wireless announced today it is turning on the world’s first large-scale 4G LTE network on Sunday, Dec. 5. Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network will be the fastest and most advanced 4G network in America. Business users will be the first to take advantage of the 4G LTE network with speeds up to 10 times faster than the company’s 3G network.
With the launch, Verizon Wireless is also offering new value-priced 4G LTE Mobile Broadband data plans starting at $50 monthly access for 5 GB monthly allowance, as well as two new 4G LTE USB modems: the LG VL600 which will be available at launch, and the Pantech UML290, available soon.
Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer of Verizon Wireless, said, “Beginning Sunday, Verizon Wireless is making the best network even better. Our initial 4G LTE launch gives customers access to the fastest and most advanced mobile network in America and immediately reaches more than one-third of all Americans, right where they live. That’s just the start. We will quickly expand 4G LTE, and by 2013 will reach the existing Verizon Wireless 3G coverage area.”
Road warriors using laptops will immediately benefit from Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network with super-fast connectivity that’s up to 10 times faster than the company’s current 3G network. The company expects 4G LTE average data rates in real-world, loaded network environments to be 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.
Mead continued, “We are building our 4G LTE network with the same commitment to performance and reliability for which we have long been recognized. Our commitment to superior network performance, combined with broad 4G coverage areas and the strong value of our data plans make 4G LTE Mobile Broadband the best choice for laptop users.”
4G LTE Mobile Broadband Data Plans, Devices and Coverage Areas
Verizon Wireless customers can choose from two 4G LTE Mobile Broadband data plans: $50 monthly access for 5 GB monthly allowance or $80 monthly access for 10 GB monthly allowance, both with $10/GB overage. For laptop connectivity, two 4G LTE USB modems will be initially available: the LG VL600 is available at launch and the Pantech UML290 will be available soon, each $99.99 after $50 rebate with a new two-year agreement. Both USB modems provide backward-compatibility with Verizon Wireless’ 3G network. If laptop users travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, they will automatically stay connected on the company’s 3G network.
The two modems harness the power of the company’s 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network to help enterprise, business and government customers make their workforces more productive, providing super-fast laptop connectivity. Both modems will be available in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores, online at www.verizonwireless.com, by phone by calling 1-800 256-4646 and through the company’s business sales channels.
The company expects consumer-oriented handsets will be available by mid-2011.
Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network is initially launching in 38 major metropolitan areas and in more than 60 commercial airports coast to coast – at both airports within the launch areas plus airports in other key cities. Street level coverage area maps will be available online on Dec. 5. Today, customers can go to www.verizonwireless.com/4Glte to check if their addresses will be in the initial 4G LTE coverage area.
Spectrum and Network Partners
By leveraging its 700 MHz spectrum for LTE deployment in the United States, Verizon Wireless is capable of quickly deploying a high-quality wireless broadband network with excellent coverage. Verizon Wireless’ primary 4G LTE network vendors, Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent, are providing the underlying infrastructure for the 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.
