Needs: landscape mode capability small-ish form factor decent sound price tag b/w $100 and $200 Seems that there are not a lot of alternatives currently on the market. AL Octiv Stage MP450: http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/re...v-stage-mp450-speaker-charging-dock-for-ipad/ may be alright, but looks crappy and reviews suggest it is a bit flimsy. i have personally found most Altec Lansing products to be underwhelming (to but it mildly). it is also a product released for the iPad, not the iPad2, though both work with it. so even though it meets my needs, $150 is an awful lot of $$ to drop on a product i'm not convinced is good. of the very few other options i've encountered nothing seems quite right....there's a great JBL product out there, but it does not allow landscape. most of my search yields a litany of phoney sites recycling the same 3 product reviews.... looking for anyone who has a suggestion/link/comment on the matter. Thanks in advance.
