Apple reveals new iPad accessories
Apple today announced a new range of accessories for its iPad tablet computer. Among the offerings are a new VGA to Dock Connector Adapter ($29) for attaching the iPad to a projector or monitor, a Camera Accessory Kit ($29) that comes with a USB adapter and a SD card reader in one package, two separate pieces, to let the iPad import photos from a camera or card, and a Keyboard Dock ($69) with a normal keyboard grafted on to the front of a plastic dock. A standard Dock ($29) with audio and dock connector ports on the back will also be available, as will an Apple case ($39) made from plastic and microfiber, with a front flap that folds backwards to serve as a stand. Finally, there’s a new 10W power adapter that is included with the iPad or sold separately for $29; it uses a Dock Connector but obviously supplies more power than a typical USB port. Notably, Apple’s iPad design page also notes that it will be compatible with Bluetooth keyboards such as the Apple Wireless Keyboard via its Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR connection. All of these accessories are expected to be available on or around the time of the iPad’s launch. Several more photos of the new iPad accessories appear below; for more, check out our Flickr photostream.
