Creative to launch iPod speaker docks

Creative is one of Apple's competitors with their Zen digital audio players but that doesn't withhold them from making some cash from the iPod's success. Engadget writes the company has finished its first speaker dock for the iPod:
Although Creative gave us a peep at their wireless Xdock iPod accessory at CES, they've come up visibly short in delivering Made for iPod gear as agreed in their settlement with Apple back in August. Today, however, Creative is making amends by kicking out modified TravelSound and PlayDock speaker docks with real iPod docking action. There's nothing new here of course, the PlayDock i500 ("i" for you know what) and TravelSound I are just the PlayDock z500 ("z" for Zen, natch) and TravelSound ZEN V all gussied-up with a "Made for iPod" logo and iPod dock connector -- which isn't a bad thing.
