iHeart: A Heart-Shaped iPod & iPhone Box Dock

For some reason, this dock makes us think of that Nirvana song that we like so much, "Heart Shaped Box". Therefore, this heart-shaped box is made for anyone who enjoys hearts and Nirvana!

There's no denying it: this is a cute heart-shaped iPod dock that is certainly different from anything else that we've seen on the market. That doesn't mean that it beats everything else, but it sure is special. That's not all. This dock has a mirror that pops out when you open it. Kind of neat.

It's named the iHeart and has been touted as the "Jewelry Box Speaker" and is made by the Japanese company Marubeni Infotec. This dock is compatible with the 4th generation iPods. There are some small 2W speakers as well as a whole lot of heart-shaped buttons to play with.

While its audio qualities might be dubious, we're sure that this dock will please some people who are into the whole glam-kitsch-cute stuff. The iHeart will be available in Japan at the end of February for $110. If you want to purchase it, we suggest that you go through the usual export/import specialists, such as Japan Trend Shop, Geek Stuff 4 U or Rinkya.
