"As schools and districts throughout the country continue to introduce mobile computing devices in the classroom, its important to plan for the technology infrastructure to support these new teaching tools.Califone International, Inc., a leader in the design, development and manufacturing of audiovisual and supplemental curriculum products for use in education, today announces the launch of its first speaker developed exclusively for iPad® and iPhone®.
The new PA-MBiOS speaker is designed with students in mind, projecting a clear, crisp, classroom-filling sound for improved listening. It enables whole class and group learning activities, and supports tablet and mobile learning initiatives. Educators can use the speaker to enhance iPad® audio from a Google Hangout®, iTunes Radio®, a virtual field trip or a streaming podcast from iTunes U®, to cite a few examples.
The Califone speaker easily connects with all 30-pin iPad, iPhone or iPod models when sitting in the cradle of the docking station (iPad 1-3 models, iPhone models through the 4S and up to third generation iPod models). Current models (iPad 4, iPhone 5 as well as fourth and fifth generation iPods) can be used with a Lightning® connection adaptor (not included). The speaker also connects with Android-based devices and computers through its 3.5mm aux input."
