Creative Technology subsidiary Cambridge Soundworks on Tuesday introduced the PlayDock i, a portable “boombox”-style stereo for the iPod, complete with iPod dock. It’s coming in January 2007 for $199.99.
The PlayDock i features a built-in powered subwoofer with separate bass control, along with two full-range speakers. It can run on eight C-cell batteries or on AC power. A line-in connector lets you hook up other devices, and a headphone jack is built in as well.
The PlayDock i also sports its own FM tuner, with telescoping antenna, and has a built-in handle to make it easier to carry. A wireless remote control is also included. The PlayDock i can also connect to a television to display photos or video stored on the iPod.
Cambridge Soundworks’ Web site hadn’t been updated with specific details about the PlayDock i as

had been posted along with its companion product aimed at Creative MP3 players, the PlayDock Zen.
