Surprised that such products (Sony Dash Alarm Clocks) were discontinued in the early 2010s, and I can't seem to find any matching products from competitors that weren't discontinued as well. What's I'm talking about: http://dash.dash.sel.sony.com/
Thought about buying a cheap tablet with dock, but that would be relatively expensive. 
Are there any recent alternatives?

Still available from amazon dealers. Looks like it wasn't cheap and tablets with a dock was what killed the device to begin with. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00375MPA8/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

I wasn't able to find any decent non tablet based, multi function alternatives either.

" you are offline" and when i click on button more for detail information. Get the information given below:


The server at www.bleepingcomputer.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.
Check your DNS settings.
Contact your network administrator if you're not sure what this means.
