Belkin Zune Accessories
Belkin revealed today that it will help the fledgling Zune accessory market by launching several new accessories for protecting and listening to the new Microsoft player. Five new cases will make their debut in time for the Zune's November 14th launch, including the Folio Kickstand (pictured, $30)), a leather case that can rest upright in landscape mode for videos. Other releases include the clear Acrylic Case ($30), the microfiber Holster Case ($30), a neoprene Sports Armband ($30), and the basic Sports Jacket ($20).
Additionally, Belkin has announced two travel accessories: the TuneBase FM is a car-mounted FM transmitter that can charge the Zune as well as play its audio through a nearby stereo, while the TunePower external battery pack adds as much as 6 hours of playback time and serves as a kickstand when watching videos. These two devices are expected to ship in late November for $80 and $60 respectively. Click through for a photo of the Acrylic Case.
