Scosche Already Designing New Dock Connector Accessories

iLounge reports on images from an anonymous tipster showing off the first photos of accessories for the new Apple Dock connector.

The products appear to come from Scosche and incorporate both a micro USB plug, as well as an adapter for the new iPhone dock connector.

The charger will presumably charge devices that use either the micro USB plug or Apple's new dock connector. The new smaller dock connector has been rumored to be replacing the current 30-pin connector. Photos of the new dock cable have already been leaked. 3rd party accessory makers appear to already be working on compatible devices to be able to provide accessories at or near launch.

Still don't like how they have the earphone jack at the bottom. It just seems so... wrong.

To each his own, but I prefer it.

But if you have the jack at the bottom you have to have your phone upside down in your pocket. I don't like that.

Think about how easy it will be to pull the phone out of your pocket to use it. After you pull it out, you're naturally holding it in it's portrait position. This was something Apple should have done long ago, like the iPod Touch.
