Altec Lansing has unveiled an iPod dock that folds up to make it easy to take with you.

The inMotion Compact (iMT320) is compatible with all generations of iPod (except the Shuffle) and iPhone. It allows users to enjoy music stored on their portable audio players through its speaker, while also charging the iPod or iPhone.

The dock's stand can be folded flat to cover the device, making it easy to transport and ensuring the dock is protected while being transported.

It can be powered by batteries or mains power and will automatically pause music playback when a call is received.

The inMotion Compact (iMT320) measures 241x46x119 and also benefits from a 3.5mm jack ensuring CD, DVD, and MP3 players can be connected to the device.

"We incorporated the latest design and technology so our users can enjoy their music on the go. In addition to looking great, the attached wrap-around cover offers a new level of travel protection for your dock. You'll be surprised by how much great sound this small form factor delivers," said Adrian Bedgood, Altec Lansing's consumer marketing manager

Priced at £59.99, the Altec Lansing inMotion Compact (iMT320) will be available imminently direct from Altec Lansing or from Amazon.
