AS-iP70: Kenwood's iPhone/iPod-compatibe 7-inch "multimedia system"

Kenwood Japan has announced [JP] the AS-iP70 today, a swiss army knife of sorts for various media. The device serves as a dock for your iPhone or iPod but can also be used as an AM/FM radio, music player, alarm clock, and a digital picture frame – thanks to its 7-inch LCD screen.

Kenwood says the 800g-device supports the iPod touch/classic/nano and the iPhone 3G and 3GS. It features speakers (1.5W×2ch at 8Ω), a TFT display with 800×480 resolution and 15:9 (not 16:9) aspect ratio, a USB 2.0 port and an SD/SDHC card slot. It’s compatible with JPEG/MP3/WMA/WAV formats (meaning it won’t display videos).

The AS-iP70 will go on sale in Japan at the end of next month (price: $275). Kenwood hasn’t said anything about international sales plans yet.
