Apple has updated their Web site to include everything you would want to know about the iPad, the specs, the design, the Apps, and especially the accessories.
When you go out to Verizon or AT&T to get a new phone you don’t just get a phone, you get accessories such as car chargers, cases and covers, screen protectors, micro SD cards, and etc.
Although limited, the iPad has a few accessories as well, such as the 10W USB Power Adapter, the Camera Connection Kit, and the iPad Case.
All of these accessories are intended for the mobile user, however the iPad Dock, and the Keyboard Dock are targeted to those more stationary users.
David Klein, a writer for The Apple Blog, described the iPad as a Peripheral Display. Mimicking that of a laptop, these accessories allow you to sit at your desk, table or couch without holding it like an iPhone or iTouch.
Klein says that with the iPad Apps and the stationary function of the Keyboard Dock you can retrieve “glanceable information” without being distracted from your main task at hand. (i.e. watching television, doing work on your companies computer, cooking dinner, etc.)
What other accessories would you (if you are an iPad fan) like to see in the future?
My list is this
- Web camera
- Speaker dock
- Skin color preference
- Car charger for users on the go
Now, let’s look at the keyboard a bit closer.
Do you see anything out of the ordinary?
According to The Mobile News Team at MobileMagazine.com, the keyboard actually has a Mystery blank key, which they highlighted in the picture below.
The blank key is right above the 6 key, where the F6 key would be on a PC.
The function of this key is a mystery, and will only be known to consumers once the product is released in The Apple Store.
There have been rumors that the iPad will be released as early as tomorrow, March 1st! If you want to be the first to own this new technology Apple has a “Notify Me” button on their Web site that allows you to sign up for a notification via email for when the iPad will be available to purchase.
