Now Shipping: Griffin's iTrip Mini FM Transmitter for iPod Mini
Griffin Technology announced today that they have begum shipping the iTrip mini FM transmitter for the iPod Mini, one month earlier than originally announced.
The new iTrip mini joins the iTrip line as one of the hottest iPod accessories in the world. The iTrip has received critical acclaim for its exclusive iPod-only features such as unlimited station frequencies tuned directly from the iPod and battery-free iPod mating design. The iTrip mini brings the entire list of award winning iTrip features to the iPod mini in a new, beautifully form-fitting mini design.
The iTrip mini is the FIRST and ONLY FM transmitter made exclusively for the iPod mini. Weighing less than an ounce, it connects directly to the top of the iPod mini, blending seamlessly with the mini’s sleek lines. The iTrip mini looks great with every color of iPod mini; it matches the white scroll wheel perfectly.
The iTrip mini can broadcast to any available frequency, and the station is selected directly from the iPod mini itself. It features digital tuning that completely eliminates drift and provides a powerful signal that can reach a radio over 50 feet away. The iTrip mini requires no batteries: It draws its minimal power directly from the iPod mini and is so simple to use it doesn’t even have a power switch. It automatically powers up when there is music and then shuts itself off after 60 seconds without music. The iTrip mini even remains attached and functioning perfectly while atop an iPod mini that’s docked or charging.
“Interest in the iTrip mini has been awesome since we announced it earlier this month.’ said Andrew Green, VP Marketing & Design. “I am so pleased to be able to announce that the iTrip mini is now shipping – one month ahead of our scheduled release in July. That means our customers can get it sooner and begin enjoying their iPod mini’s music in their car, on their summer vacation, even through a boombox at the beach all summer long.”
