I haven't used an alarm clock in years, but sometimes I miss hammering on a giant snooze button rather than gently selecting an option on my phone. Sony's upcoming alarm clock offers that, an iPod dock, and lots more.
Sony's ICF-CL75iP alarm clock has a 7-inch WVGA screen, 1GB of internal storage (and a USB port for more), a retractable iPod dock and an FM radio. It seems kind of excessive to have an extra screen when an iPod or iPhone is sitting right there, but as it plays video too (MP4, Motion JPEG and AVI), maybe you'd like to wake up to a video instead. It's available for pre-order now from SonyStyle Canada for $US200 CAD (about AU$217), shipping October 1. [Sony Insider via Engadget]
SonyStyle Canada accepts Canadian orders only (surprise!)...we'll update this post when Australian availability details are released. -EH
