      #29460 - 01/18/08 07:11 AM

Griffin Technology, maker of all things iPod, has announced its 2008 line-up for Macworld Expo, with this year marking the 16th year the company has delivered products to the Apple community.

Griffin is proud to announce the following new products at Macworld Expo 2008:?
For households with multiple iPhone(TM) and iPod(R) models, PowerDock is a charging base where the whole family can get together to charge its batteries. PowerDock incorporates four Apple Universal Docks built into a single charging base, and a collection of Universal Dock insert adapters. Four can charge at once, and every iPod gets a place at the table.

RoadTrip(R) with SmartScan(TM)
RoadTrip is the original do-it-all charge and play solution for iPod. Fully redesigned for 2008, the new RoadTrip features a strong, flexible yet stable stem that holds an iPod within easy reach. RoadTrip now incorporates Griffin's exclusive SmartScanTM technology that automatically finds and saves the three best frequencies for sending the music from the user's iPod to the car's FM stereo system.

2008 rings in a redesign of iTrip, the FM transmitter for iPod that started it all. iTrip broadcasts the music to a FM radio so the user can listen through stereo speakers. The updated design works with new and old?iPod models and can be even be used with cases.

iTrip(R) for iPod nano
iTrip nano plays a user's iPod through a stereo without hassles and without wires, all in a fresh, new design that draws cues from Apple's 3rd generation iPod nano. It's iTrip quality, reliability and ease of use in a compact package that matches Apple's iPod nano.

TuneFlex(R) AUX
TuneFlex holds a user's iPod in the car, and charges the player's battery while it plays. TuneFlex AUX greets 2008 with a new, universal design that includes a set of snap-on adapters to custom-fit full-size iPod and iPod nano models. Tuneflex plugs securely into the 12V accessory port or cigarette lighter, and features a flexible steel neck, adjustable for maximum access to screen and controls. The included 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo mini cable connects TuneFlex to AUX-In-equipped stereos for clear, interference-free sound through the car stereo.

Elan(TM) Form Cork for iPhone
Griffin introduces its unique cork-covered hard-shell case, for those times when all you need is stylish protection. The shell's snap-together design combines the warmth and durability of natural cork with hard-shell polycarbonate, for two layers of protection.

Updated Power Solutions for iPod and iPhone(TM)

The number-one-selling car charger for iPod gets a fresh look and charging indicators for 2008. PowerJolt charges the user's iPod or iPhone from the car's 12V power outlet during use. New low-profile design for all charge-by-USB iPod models. Ships with a detachable USB 30-pin dock connector cable, which can also double as a charge/sync cable for use with a computer. Also works with many other devices that charge via USB, using the device's USB cable.

A new, slimmed-down design for Griffin's popular AC wall charger features blades that fold flat for traveling, and non-polarized for ease of use with international adapters. Handles 100 to 240 volt AC, and charges iPhone and dock connector iPod models, as well as 1st generation iPod shuffle or any other USB-chargeable device. Included detachable cable can be used as an extra sync cable for iPod.
