imageSwitchEasy Limited has announced the PivotDock docking station for the iPod shuffle. The compact dock plugs directly into a USB port and features a 180-degree pivoting design.

“The PivotDock significantly reduces the spatial footprint of any docked iPod shuffle, safely tucking it within a smaller space and minimizing the chances of accidental breakage,” says SwitchEasy.

The dock also features a green LED status light and is compatible with USB 1.0/2.0 ports on Macs and PCs. It will ship next month for $15.99, but can be pre-ordered now for $9.99.

It’s indeed a tidy solution, but I prefer the little 4-port Belkin hub I just picked up. Sure it takes up space on the desk, costs a few dollars more ($19), is made in a fairly cheezy plastic, and mimics a 4G iPod’s aesthetics in a VERY token way, but at least it allows me to easily plug my BlackBerry 7100t and Cruzer USB mem stick right ON my desk—no more reaching down to and/or behind the machine—at the same time the Shuffle’s talking with iTunes. Still, if I were looking for only a single-port solution, the PivotDock is the best one I seen so far.

Yeah, I don’t have a Shuffle. But if I did….I sure would love one of these. - Andrew

I bought one yesterday. I am not usually into gadgets like this because my shuffle will sync up without it. But just the otherday, I had my shuffle in the Front of my G5 and my 13 month old tried to grab it, due to it sticking OUT verus be more flush with G5. Hopefully this will make it a little less easier to pull on.
