As a geek and lover of all cool gadgets, I’m filing this one under the “hell yeah, that’s what I’m talking about” category. For some reason Sony chose to quietly announce this little tidbit at CES 2014 this year dubbed the XSP-N1BT.

The product would have been missed entirely by the tech blogosphere if it wasn’t for the folks over at @evleaks tweeting about it. Being called the world’s first double-DIN handset cradle receiver, the XSP-N1BT (this thing needs a cooler and shorter name) allows you to place your device on it, adjusting the slider for a firm fit. With NFC/Bluetooth functionality you can pair the devices instantly, allowing you to play audio through your speakers, make hands free calls and charge your phone via the USB port.

In addition, the company is further reporting that future Xperia devices may be able to charge wirelessly. To wrap up the cool device, the company has also added a little remote for easier functionality and access to all of the devices features. With a Sony remote application, you can even use an AM/FM radio app for those who have not jumped on the Pandora/Slacker bandwagon.
