A cradle and dock for Apple's iPod digital-music player have been released.

The iPodCradle and iPodDock are from developers PhotoControl.

The iPodCradle allows the iPod to sit upright on a desk, while the dock adds audio and FireWire ports to create a docking solution for desktop or home-stereo use. Both products ship on May 6, priced at $29.95 and $44.95 respectively.

Photo Control also offers a $9.95 plastic protective cover for the iPod – the iPodWrap.

AM Micro will distribute the iPodCradle and iPodDock in the UK. Pricing has yet to be announced.
