    The purpose of this thread to be a central place for all type of accessories for iPad. It’ll make it easy for people to find what they are looking including things that they never thought to look for. I would love some support from everybody here by posting the info with a pic, link, price and reviews (once it is out of course).

    What comes already in every iPad order are: a dock to usb connector and a USB to power outlet adapter. There's an extended 6' USB to power adapter available for sale to use as a second charger, for home or work.

    I really hope Griffin will do a scaled-up Elan Form case for it. Just a nice leather backing and some protective plastic around the edges and corners.

    Many thanks for this great thread! Loving the Ristretto for iPad due to its very light weight, only 11 oz...

    I love the Ristretto, however, I don't love the price :). Maybe one day, but my dollars right now are going to Jobs and company.

    The Scosche Kickback is the only case/stand combo other than Apples, and I don't understand from the iLounge pics how it can support landscape and portrait standing as the pics don't show any rotating disc. Of course there is no info on their website, and besides all that it's a bit to industro-fugly.

    Marware makes great stuff and shows an iPad and Kindle section for cases and sleeves but their site appears to be undergoing a transformation and that portion is currently down.

    marware.com no longer works and their main site has been replaced by http://staging.marware.com/
    all the top headers reveal selections below except for the iPad & Kindle section.

    I have their Sportfolio Deluxe Black for the MacBook which is a real nice case/sleeve hybrid that give you some storage room but in a nice compact form.
    Not as big as it looks.

    Someone REALLY needs to make a case that'll make your ipad look like an Etch-a-Sketch! There's already at least one Etch a Sketch app.

    I am digging this thread and thank you for all the info. I get tired of wading through all the hate and negativity towards the iPad pre-release.

    Thanks guys, I updated the thread with more products as well as crediting them to you.

    @roland.g, yea the marware site sucks. I found three iPad cases (links in first post) but two of them looks exactly the same. Too many errors on their site. I listed all I can find. As for the Scosche case, I'll update once more info is released, I just added it just in case.

    BTW, I emailed last week with the folks over at BSE - www.bestskinsever.com

    They informed me that they will have a skin for the iPad once it is released. They typically don't design their templates from specs but actually buy product to make a better template.

    They are a local company to me here in Colorado. They produce as good or better skins IMO than IS and BGz and usually at a substantially lower price. I have used them on my original iPhone (which I sold in mint condition b/c of the skin) and on my 3G. I mistakenly tried the BodyGuardz for my aluminum MacBook but that was a horrible experience and then used the less expensive BSE on it instead and the application was much much easier and it still looks fantastic and has a better coverage layout. I urge any skin users to try them first.

    These are all cases, bags and screen protectors, no actual hardware?

    Other than the dock accessories (which is listed under Docks and only Apple stuff has been announced), there has been no hardware stuff announced, just the iPad.

    Thanks a bunch to the OP for this post. I've been looking around for information about iPad accessories! Also glad to see some people in here who have some love for the device.
