iHome to Showcase Lightning-Equipped Docks at CES

Nathan Ingraham, writing for The Verge:

Another year, another lineup of iHome docks for your iOS devices - but this year's are a bit more exciting, as they're compatible with Apple's new Lightning connector found on the latest iPods, iPads, and iPhone. The headlining item in the lineup is probably the $149.99 iDL100 alarm clock dock, which features three separate connections - two Lightning ports as well as one standard USB port for legacy devices. There's also an auxiliary jack for standard 3.5mm audio cables, and the alarm clock syncs itself to whatever the time set on your iOS devices is.

I really like my iP90 that I use with my 4S, due in no small part to the fact I bought it last year at Radio Shack for $30. It normally goes for $100, but the tag said $30 even though the store computer listed the real price. The sales guy confirmed the discrepancy, and gave me the thing for the steeply-discounted price. Best deal of 2012 right there.

I'll be upgrading to the 5S/6 this year, but I don't want to give up my perfectly usable iHome. A Lightning-native kit like the ones described in the article would be awesome, but I guess I'll just have to settle for one of Apple's Lightning-to-30-pin adapters. Not ideal, but it'll do.
