Creative outs ZiiSound speakers docks

At the Zii Summit in Singapore on Tuesday, Creative showed off a new range of iPod speaker docks branded as ZiiSound. Despite the name, the speakers will not have Creative's Zii stemcell processor integrated into them. The ZiiSound D5 iPod dock sports a wireless iPod connector and sends the audio to the actual speakers using Bluetooth.

The dock will also charge iPods or iPhones and has a built-in 3.5mm audio jack for incorporating other portable music devices or computers via their headphone output.

Pricing has not yet been set for the ZiiSound D5, but early estimates and indications put it in the $300 range. Shipping should start in early 2010. A version of the dock called ZiiSound D3 is also said to be coming soon, with its compatibility optimized for the Zii Egg multimedia player. [via CNET]
