We've seen iPod docks and we've seen cases but we ain't seen anything like this before.Looking unfathomably like Samsung's new Q1 Ultra UMPC – it even sports the same 7in size display – the i1055 is in fact an add-on for the video iPod.With the Apple player nestled safely in the back it'll screen movies on the Archos 704 sized screen while piping audio through the built-in speakers.Run out of content to watch? Not a problem, because iLuv's also shoehorned in a DVD player for just such emergencies.Naturally little iPod can't be expected to keep all that spinning and glowing on its own so the dock has it's own three-hour battery. Back home it'll plug into the mains and the TV for easy viewing on your main screen.It's slated for imminent UK release – in black or white to match your 'Pod.
