Today, at IFA, Philips announced the first (nearly universal) audio docks for Android devices.  If you have ever taken a trip into a big box retailer, an online retailer, or gone to an electronics trade show you have seen the vast expanse of  iPRODUCTS.  This product designed to work with Apple iDEVICES blah blah blah.  For the past two years I have been waiting for a product similar to this.


Philips addresses the issue that has been holding OEMs from designing for Android – the lack of uniformity.  Android comes in all shapes and sizes and very rarely has a manufacturer maintained a design that is uniform even across their own product line.  Only recently, has Motorola begun to do so with the Photon, Droid 3, Atrix, etc – they should all theoretically be capable of sharing the same docks and accessories.


Philips has designed a unique connector which can be adjusted in three dimensions to offer the ability to hold your phone (or tablet) in either landscape or portrait mode.  “This means you can dock and charge most Android phones and your phone will always be positioned at the centre of the speaker for the best sound experience.”

Three models were introduced.

Fidelio for Android (AS851) – The clean lines of the curved back on the Fidelio for Android (AS851) not only looks remarkable, but also creates a more effective structure for acoustics and precisely tuned bass pipes for deep, tight bass reproduction so you’ll experience a superb crystal-clear sound. This model comes with Philips Digital sound processing for lifelike, distortion-less music and 30W RMS total output power.

Fidelio for Android (AS351) – This slightly smaller Fidelio for Android (AS351) will give you the right sound at home and on the go. With the option to choose between battery and AC power, you can enjoy your music anywhere. This model offers Dynamic Bass Boost to preserve low tones for deep bass at any volume level and comes with 10W RMS total output power. A special shielding technology blocks mobile phone interference whilst the AUX-in at the back side of the device means you can connect almost any electronic device.

Fidelio for Android (AS111) – The third model in the range, the Fidelio for Android (AS111) comes in an elegant and compact design that looks gorgeous from every angle and fits onto every bedside table. Its 360-degree design gives a rich omni-directional sound to fill your bedroom, whilst neodymium speakers deliver a pure balanced sound so you can wake up to a great sound from your Android phone
