Sold from the United Kingdom, Woodford Design's new FridgePad (£35/$57) is an oversized refrigerator magnet attached to an iPad-specific frame, designed to attach to flat steel surfaces and securely hold the original iPad in place. It works with unencased iPads and comes in five colors; the current version does not work with the iPad 2, and won't until the company releases "replaceable corner clips," which will be "free" and are "coming soon." Unclear: the impact of the large magnet on the first iPad's magnetometer. We'll run some tests and provide an answer soon. The company also sells PowerLine (£10/$16) as a 9-foot long charging and sync cable for iPads, iPhones, and iPods as a separate accessory.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
