A new UK-based online retailer primarily focused on iPods has launched in the UK, iPod: Essentials.

The online shop offers a full complement of iPod peripheral devices from multiple manufacturers, including MacAlly, Lili, iSkin, Marware, Dr. Bott, ten Technologies, Griffin Technologies, PodGear and more. The company also supplies FireWire cards for iPod owners attempting to link up with older Macs and many Windows PCs, which lack FireWire connectivity.

Also available for sale are a number of storage options, iBook and PowerBook cases.

Additionally, the Web site provides a variety of useful information and FAQs that could be handy to novice iPod owners.
