    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- CES Booth: Central 11906 -- Maxell
 Corporation of America has expanded its iPod accessories line with newly
 designed clock radio docks that offer consumers an all-in-one solution,
 including AM/FM functionality, dual alarms, sleep modes, snooze
 capabilities, battery back-up and remote controls.
     The entire iPod Clock Radio product line not only plays flash media
 devices, but features a USB and 3.5 mm jack, enabling users to listen to
 their MP3s players and other portable music devices. Products are scheduled
 to be shipped late this year.
     Maxell's Desktop is an AM/FM clock radio that serves as a speaker
 system, iPod charging station and picture frame that allows users to
 replace the standard iPod screen with their personal photographs. The new
 Desktop also has high-quality, upscale sound features.
     Maxell's new, state-of-the-art Bedside Alarm Clock Radio delivers an
 extra large, backlit LCD screen with dimmer, shows date and time and also
 gives consumers four intense speakers and a dynamic wave chamber for
 enhanced bass.
     Maxell is also introducing a new iPod Desktop/Wall Mount Alarm Clock
 Radio that can be set on a desk, tabletop or mounted on a wall. As with the
 entire product line, the iPod Desktop/Wall Mount Alarm Clock radio features
 AM/FM capability, a flash memory card reader, charging functionality and a
 sleek time and temperature weather display.
     "Our new clock, alarm and charging stations will deliver consumers
 unmatched quality and they extend the usefulness of the iPod, which has
 become practically ubiquitous in American life. iPods are not just for
 portable use any more and people want to listen to them in all aspects of
 their life," said Gordon Tetreault, director of sales and marketing for
 Maxell's accessory products.
     Maxell's One Dock, Bedside Alarm Clock Radio and Desktop/Wall Mount
 Alarm Clock Radio retail for $99.99, $149.99 and $199.99 respectively.
