Sonos to Launch Wireless Dock for iPhone and iPod Touch

wd100418

Owners of Sonos’ multi-room audio system have been able to use their iPhones and iPod Touches for some time as a remote control, courtesy of a pretty awesome app, but they’ve been unable to actually play any music stores on those devices on the network.

Until now.

Sonos today announced the £99 Sonos Wireless Dock (WD100), which connects to your Sonos ZonePlayers over Wi-Fi, streaming audio to any room in the house.

The Sonos Wireless Dock is compatible with the following devices: iPod touch (1st, 2nd and 3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd, 4th and 5th generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPhone, and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards.

The new accessory comes hot on the heels of a recent agreement between Sonos and Spotify to allow premium subscribers access to their playlists and Spotify’s 8 million track  audio library on the device.

You’ll be able to pick up the Sonos Wireless Dock next month.
