While we're sure there are more accessories to come, two add-ons that will be readily available when the Motorola Droidlaunches on November 6 are the Multimedia Station and Phone Holder for Droid. Verizon announced their official pricing on Thursday with each device costing $29.99.

The multimedia dock turns the Droid into a hub where you can easily access your music, photos, and videos and use it as a bedside alarm clock and weather station. It also serves as a charger.

Meanwhile, when the smartphone is placed in the Phone Holder, it will automatically bring up a navigation menu where you can view maps, search for points of interest, or get voice-guided turn-by-turn directions with the new Google Maps Navigation app.

The only accessories packaged with the Motorola Droid include an AC adapter, a USB cable, and a 16GB microSD card.
