When iPhone was first released to the market a few years ago, many experts did not take it that seriously. Those who did knew what a transformational of a device it could become. The iPhone has caused disruptions across many industries. Its latest victim is the Flip camera family. Flip camcorders are portable devices that can be used to capture video “on the go.” These devices are cheap and pretty decent in quality. The trouble is, iPhone’s camera has been getting even better in the past couple of years. The news that iPhone 5 could get a 8 MP camera with even better recording capabilities seems to have put the final nail in the Flip’s coffin.
To be fair, iPhone is not the only device that contributed to the Flip’s demise. Many other smart-phones are powerful devices for capturing video and photos on the go. The emergence of devices such as iPhone has led to the death of many one trick pony devices though. That is expected to continue.The iPhone won’t be killing speakers though. People will still need a decent set of speakers to listen to the content on their smart-phones. If you want something different, maybe the above trumpet speaker for iPhone could be for you. Its sound switch goes through the pipes. Christopher Lock’s Analog Tele-Phonographer is up for grabs for $400:
This device was made from a salvaged trumpet and assorted machine parts. The base is steel, the legs that hold everything up are stainless steel, and the cradle that holds the telephone is also steel.Top iPhone & iPad cases & accessories
The sound quality may not be HD but is not bad at all. It is truly a one of a kind speaker for iPhone. Any takers?
