London – For the first time, owners of Android phones and devices can join their Apple counterparts to enjoy exceptional Philips Fidelio quality sound, plus ‘dock, charge and play’ simplicity, with an exclusive UK launch of a new range of docks initially available at selected Currys and PC World stores*.
The new Philips Android docking range offers a choice of three different models - the ‘room-filling’ sound from the AS851, sounds for home or on the go with the smaller mains or battery powered AS351, and a stylish alarm clock dock, the AS111.
Due to an innovative micro USB connector that can be adjusted to different positions and orientations to suit each variable Android device, alongside a dedicated Philips App, all of the docks will offer a similar ‘dock and play’ functionality to that of the Apple range.
In addition to docking and charging, sound transfer has also been made simple thanks to Philips dedicated Fidelio app for Android. When the phone is docked, the App automatically starts – if necessary automatically starting Bluetooth – and pairs the phone to the dock. So the minute you press play the sound is unleashed.
As the docks are part of the Fidelio range, the sound is guaranteed to be of the highest quality. The Fidelio for Android range consists of the following devices:
