One of the accessories that is really mounted power with iOS devices is the dock speaker. Available in many models and brands, 90% of them (and I’m nice …) are mostly compatible with devices from Apple for a simple reason, a pretty 30-pin connector in the front, and so when we take a cheap dock it can be annoying to send it to the dump because you change your environment, someone who put the 500 € in a Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin will certainly stay with the iPhone until the death of the enclosure. Ok this is perhaps not the best example because there are now in Bluetooth.
All this to get where? to the Pear! This little accessory with the 30 socket pins can be adapted to any dock and so offer him the joys of Bluetooth. Not require a battery because it’s powered by the dock port, over the design is simple and it remains in the fruit, the logo is a pear. The litters are announced about 10 meters indoors and outdoors about 23 meters, the device is compatible with about any type of Bluetooth enabled device, including devices also cabbage.
HOW DOES IT WORK? By using A2DP technology, already built into your mobile device, we are able to connect via Bluetooth® to play your music through your speakers.

Regarding availability, date yet because the project is currently on Kickstarter, a platform of “crowd funding”, allowing anyone to contribute. The project is currently just over half the sum of 40,000$ needed to put into production and it remains about 2 months to reach that amount. A prototype is already functional and visible on video in kickstarter page. Regarding a possible sale price, the 40 bucks are listed.
By cons still no solution to recover your applications from one system to another, sorry.
