Kindle Fire to Get Docking Station in July

Finally the Kindle Fire gets its own iPod-ish speaker dock.

An email is going around this morning from Grace Digital Audio. They're showing off their newest gadget, the FireDock, which is going to be $130 speaker dock for the Kindle Fire.

That might seem a little expensive, but it comes with 2 speakers, a remote control, and an optional li-On battery. It's also designed to charge the KF while it's in use, and you can set the dock to hold the Kindle Fire in either landscape or portrait mode.

That is a fair amount of hardware, and it looks to be a better value than similar Nook and Kindle Fire docks that showed up a few months back. I'm usually not one to invest in a dock, but this one looks pretty enough that I might get it.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
