Apple’s iPad Accessories

iPad Keyboard Dock

I’m sure we’re going to see a huge array of iPad accessories from lots of third party manufacturers leading up to and following the release of the iPad.  Apple also has a few of their own that should be on offer as soon as the iPad is available.

At least a couple of them were shown off during the iPad launch event this past Wednesday – the iPad Keyboard Dock and the iPad Case.

Hit the jump for a little more details on these and the rest of the Apple iPad accessories …

iPad Keyboard Dock
The Keyboard Dock combines a dock for charging your iPad with a full-size keyboard. The dock has a rear 30-pin connector, which lets you connect to an electrical outlet using the USB Power Adapter, sync to your computer, and use accessories like the Camera Connection Kit. An audio jack lets you connect to a stereo or powered speakers.

Apple iPad Case

iPad Case
The iPad Case not only protects the iPad, it can be used in various positions. So it’s easy to type, look at photos and slideshows, or watch movies.

The three other Apple accessories for the iPad are an iPad Dock, the iPad Camera Connection Kit, and an iPad 10W USB Power Adapter.



I was kind of hoping that the iPad Case might be included with the iPad.  Silly me.  I know that I will want to grab an iPad Keyboard Dock and some sort of case for it very quickly.  I may well look at third party cases more than Apple’s own at the outset.

  1. I definitely want the Apple case, because of the kickstand feature, although I'm sure eventually a third party case will offer that functionality. But I'll probably also get a third party case for when I want to use the iPad but don't need the kickstand. I'm undecided about the keyboard dock. I'll probably wait on that to see how I like the soft keyboard and how often I actually type on the iPad. Besides, I have an Apple bluetooth keyboard, which I could use with the iPad anyway. And while it's in landscape mode, which I think, sight unseen, I'd prefer.

    1. I think I might prefer just getting the dock and using it with a BT keyboard as well, but I'll likely try out on-screen and full keyboard dock as well.
