New iPod Peripherals? [Updated]

Apple last updated the iPod line in April, 2003 with the introduction of the "3rd Generation" iPods at sizes of 10GB, 15GB and 30GB. The newest iPods sport a redesigned case as well as a new bottom connector, allowing the use of a Dock.

Reliable reports now indicate that Apple is poised to launch two new peripherals (not accessories) specifically for the 3rd Generation iPod owners. Unfortunately, details of the items are unavailable at this time.

Update: Appleinsider provides some independent confirmation of iPod peripherals coming. One "suggestion" is an input dictation device, but this information appears to be speculative.

The only additional information MacRumors can provide at this time is that the upcoming peripherals will require an iPod software update to utilize the new hardware.
