Apple iPad accessories dated; available for pre-order now


Alongside pre-orders of the iPad, Apple has begun accepting pre-orders for its initial range of iPad accessories. Apple’s iPad Case, priced at $39, the iPad Dock, which is priced at $29, and the iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter, also priced at $29, are expected to ship April 3, the same day as the first Wi-Fi-only iPads. The iPad Keyboard Dock, which sells for $69, is expected to ship in mid-April, while the iPad 10W USB Power Adapter, priced at $29, is scheduled to ship in late April. In addition, the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPad was also available, extending the warranty and complimentary telephone support coverage to two years for $99. Curiously, no pre-orders are yet being taken for the iPad Camera Connection Kit, as it was not listed anywhere in the store, and while the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard is listed alongside these other accessories, no pre-order is necessary, as it is already widely available.

You can pre-order accessories, but you can’t reserve them as I found out this morning.  I’m hoping my local Apple store will have a case available when I pick up my 64GB iPad April 3rd. 

As far as Apple Care, it’s a no-brainer but I’ll hold off until whenever the warranty period is about to expire.

So, where is the iPad Camera Connection Kit?  It is listed as an accessory that can be used with the keyboard/dock,but it nowhere to be found for sale. I wonder.

Hey, my comment above got spotlighted on iLounge’s home page!

I only wish I had said something more intelligent, LOL.
