Altec Lansing Orbit MP3 iM237


Introduction: We are family...

"MOM! iM600 won't stop touching me!"

"If you two don't stop it immediately I'm going unplug you both and put you back in your boxes!"

It's just another day in the Altec Lansing family. Like many of our own families, they're loud, powerful and talented in many different ways. There are struggles among siblings, trying to fit in and impress their parents and show them what they're capable of. Some of their kids are decent at doing a lot of things, while the others seem to be prodigies in one, and only one field. Through all the squabbles, they are related and they must stick together. This is the story of the tiniest Altec Lansing, she's small and unassuming, but get her worked up and she'll give you a piece of her mind.

My brother and my sister and me...

Of course I'm talking about the Orbit MP3 iM237 by Altec Lansing, the youngest, and smallest of the inMotion line of speakers and accessories for portable music players. Making its way out from under the shadow of its siblings, the iM237 hopes to distinguish itself as a truly portable alternative to earbuds. Unlike the rest of the inMotion line, the Orbit wasn't designed to be a docking station or standalone player. It will never be a music-playing, time-telling fixture in your bedroom or kitchen like the moondance HOME or the inMotion MAX. Like your unmarried, chain-smoking aunt who can sing like an angel and would have been the next superstar diva if she hadn't, as a teenager, broke her parent's hearts by dropping out of High School and running off with the guy who worked at the guitar store, the Orbit is a little "different" from the rest of the family.

The Altec-Lansing family tree: The Orbit MP3 may not do as much as its big brothers and sisters, but it holds its own by doing what it supposed to do, play music, and doing it well.
