The company that brought the bedside iPod/iPhone dock to the masses has a few new and exciting offerings up its sleeve for next week’s CES show. We got a sneak peek at three new docks that iHome will be offering for viewing at CES and for purchase later in the year: the Airplay-capable iW4, the bright and colorful iP18, and the Bluetooth-enhanced iD50. The most exciting offering here is definitely the integration of Airplay into the consumer-friendly line of docks, but each design looks refreshed and enhanced in other ways as well.

The brand new iW4 dock ($270, above) comes with built in WiFi and even an Ethernet port, allowing users to easily stream music from their entire iTunes library to the dock thanks to Airplay technology. Besides the host of usual iHome dock features (dual alarms, etc.), the iW4, which is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, features a new swiveling dock connector, 20W of power, and a “Reson8” speaker chamber. 

The iHome iP18 is on the more affordable side ($70) and features a funky cube design and party-ready flashing LED lights in different colors. The dockwill have four different color light options, use the company’s Reson8 speaker chamber technology, and come with basic features like one-touch clock sync.

Stay tuned as we’ll be going hands-on with these docks and more iHome offerings next week at CES.
