    Whoa: Audiovox Now Owns Klipsch

    Audiovox is massing an impressive horde of consumer electronics companies with Klipsch the latest addition.

    UTStarcom offloads its handset division

    We don’t really hear much about Audiovox UTStarcom these days. In all the time I’ve spent staring at other peoples phones, I’ve come across but a handful of UTStarcom handsets.

    Jensen debuts XP-running Internet tablet thing

    We like it when companies introduce products that just might start up a whole new market, like this Anyware (geddit!?) PC from Audiovox/Jensen.

Think of it in the category of devices like Nokia’s N810, but a little… Read More

  • Audiovox Buys Thomson's CE Accessories, RCA Brand

    I’ve had a pretty negative opinion of Audiovox’s products since high school when I witnessed a friend jam a piece of cardboard into his car’s Audiovox tape deck to get the player to work. It’s a silly thing I know, but still, it’s there. Another company I have similar feelings about is RCA, a once-great brand reduced to being slapped on seemingly bargain… Read More
