There are plenty of speaker systems for the iPod and iPhone, but the QDOS SoundFrame is specifically designed for the widescreen iPhone and iPod touch. This compact flat-panel speaker can be rotated, allowing you to keep the device upright when flicking through your music menu, or to turn it on its side when you want to watch widescreen video. It’s light enough to put into your suitcase when you’re on a business trip, and the rechargeable battery will last for up to 12 hours.
