The Keyspan A/V Dock for iPod conforms to Apple's "universal dock" design. Simply pop in a dock adapter to perfectly fit any iPod with a dock connector, including click wheel iPods, the iPod mini, the iPod nano and the iPod with video.
The package includes a USB power adapter, USB cable, audio cable (3.5mm stereo to dual RCA) and three dock adapters. Priced at an MSRP of $49, the A/V Dock for iPod will be available in both white and black versions and will be released in February.
