Japanese accessory maker Suntac has unveiled “world’s first portable waterproof case and powered speaker combo”. The player sits sheltered under a transparent plastic shield and connects to the charmingly named AQIP-262 through it’s dock connector – which, incidentally, is also iPod Mini friendly, if you own one of the older, hard disk-based machines. The speakers are a pair of 0.5W jobs fed by the Nano or Mini and powered by the iPod, an AC adaptor, or the AQIP-262’s own set of four batteries, from which you’ll get up to 25 hours’ playback time if you use alkaline cells, the company claims. The AQIP-262 weighs 730g – minus batteries and Nano – and measures 24 x 15.3 x 7.5cm.
