The company released a new line of dock speakers compatible with all Android devices. The new docking systems launched by the company include the AS851, the AS351 and the AS111.
In the past owners of Android smartphones had to stream music to speakers using Bluetooth or the line-in port.
The new Phillips uses Bluetooth to play music, which is not ideal, but enables you to charge your mobile while its playing using a microSD port. Philips have made the connection adjustable so it doesn’t matter whether the port on your smartphone is on the side or the bottom.
It has a claimed output of 30 watts alongside Philips Digital sound processing, which is designed to reduce distortion. You also get a remote control for a unit that shares the same body as the Fidelio DS8500 iPod dock. It was found using the device with the Samsung Galaxy Note the Flexidock worked well.
The company said that it was difficult to create a universal docking system for Android devices but in the end had decided to let users play music using Bluetooth. Philips has also dished out an Android app that lets users control the music playing on the speakers via Bluetooth reports TechRadar.
