Designers often like to take an old classic model and give it a twist to bring it into the present; with this in mind, the folks at MicGadget have brought out the Apple iStation, which can be used to dock your iPhone or iPad.
The design recreates the look of the original Apple computer (Apple I / II) that should surely appeal to those nostalgic Apple fans. The dock, currently on the market as a limited edition, is available in pearly white or with a wood grain texture.
The gadget has a retro flavour and besides a unique design is also fully functional. Apple iStation features a keyboard that connects to the iPad via Bluetooth. The dock has special dials for volume and keys for music, slideshow, home, search.
iStation works not only wih iPad and iPad 2 but with iPhone 4 and 4S also and is compatible with iOS 5. If you find the iStation desirable and you have friends who you think would like this gift for Christmas, you should be aware that MicGadget has announced that the stocks are limited which is why they only allow one purchase for each customer.
You can order the retro docking station from the MicGadget website, for the price of $85.90.
