Summary: While it's missing a couple of key features found in competing models, the T612 distinguishes itself with a sleek design, decent sound, and some mobile phone anti-interference technology that makes the system particularly appealing to iPhone owners.
Pros: GSM-shielded iPod dock allows iPhone to be used without the need to switch it to airplane mode; attractive design; decent sound, with richer bass than you would expect from a speaker system that's this compact; music pauses and resumes before and after taking a call.
Cons: No radio; no video output; wireless remote offers limited functionality.
Excerpt: The Altec Lansing T612 in one of the first audio systems to adorn the new, “Works with iPhone” logo. This logo indicates that the T612 is certified to work in harmony with the iPhone in accordance with the specifications and standards established by Apple.
