If you haven’t already blown your extra spending cash on the must-have iPod beanie (insert sarcasm here), perhaps a more worthwhile investment would be a cool new gadget from Dexim.

Although many iPhone and iPod users have a Dexim dock for charging their mobile devices, the accessory makers recently unveiled a new device that puts the iPhone/iPod front and center in your home entertainment setup. Best of all, the Dexim DRA022 is not only an entertainment dock, it also incorporates the familiar battery extender we’ve come to know and love from Dexim.

From TechNewsWorld:

Using the WiFi capabilities of the iPhone or iPod touch, an operator can surf the Net, showcase photos, and display video on a high-definition television at a resolution of 720i, as well as listen to music on a home stereo system

The dock. which retails for about eighty bucks, arrives with a component AV cable, mini HDMI cable, and a USB AC adapter. So no matter what your need is in the moment – connecting to a TV, charging your handset, or synchronizing with a computer – the dock has you covered. The dock also comes with a nifty little remote control with a 30-foot range for selecting content, adjusting volume and controlling selections.
