Altec-Lansing Zune Dock

With notable exceptions, most speaker docks are built explicitly for the iPod. Few music players beyond Apple's models have enough clout to justify the support. Microsoft's impending Zune is one of those influential players, according to Zune team member Bill Wittress. One of the first accessories set to arrive with the player will be an Altec-Lansing speaker dock named the M604, pictured at right. The dock is largely a reworking of the existing M602 made for iPods, but gains a darker shade to suit the black and brown colors of some Zune models. Notably, this demonstrates that the Zune has been designed to work with accessories in much the same way as the iPod, playing music through its data port while charging at the same time. Accessories such as these are expected to closely follow the Zune's arrival on November 14th and may give Microsoft's jukebox an early advantage over lesser-known rivals.
