    Thanks, this is what I wanted to know. Oh well, I guess a USB extension cable will work equally as well. Definitely not worth an extra $30 IMO.

    I saw the word extension cord, and this came to mind.

    Umm... No, it does come with the iPad.

    The "iPad 10W USB Power Adapter," listed as an accessory is the exact same as the "iPad 10W USB Power Adapter," listed as being provided in the box. The accessory bares no differentiation in name than the included part.

    I'm sure it will be the same length as the iPhone cable.

    Just because it's called the same thing doesn't mean it will come with the cable. The 10W USB Power Adapter is referring to the little brick, and does not mention the extension cable. Who knows though? I guess we'll know in three weeks...

    Did you even bother to read my original post or think about it for 2 seconds??:confused:

    I disagree. I know it lists the "iPad 10W USB Power Adapter" as included in the box and that's same name as the product with the "extension cord". However, when I look at the product details of the "iPad 10W USB Power Adapter" I see this:
    http://store.apple.com/us/product/IPAD_USB_PWR_ADP?mco=MTcyMTgwOTk

    I don't know. But I'd bet they aren't sending the "extension cord" with the iPad.

    I really hope it's not the size of the iPhones cord, that thing is so short you can barely use it while charging. From the info on the page and the keynote it sounds like it will come with the charger that they offer as an accessory. Maybe they are just wanting you to buy an extra charger.

    I really do hope the extension cord comes with the unit it really is useful. I think they will though.

    I think it will be the same size as the iPhone cable.
    If you need extra length then you can purchase the longer 6" cable one.
    Apple likes to make money ya know. :)

    Okay you got my attention, why not include the extension cord?

    I'm very interested in a 6" 30pin to USB Apple branded iP*d/iPhone cable but I can't find one. Where can I find the cable you're talking about?

    i think he means like a regular usb cable that comes with ipods and iphones and the ipad also comes with just the wall adapter where this accessory also has 6 feet extra feet.

    i feel that it will come with the six feet tho.

    Not sure what you mean by Apple branded but something like this? http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.25809 I have two in the mail right now, takes about 2 weeks to get here but you cannot beat the price

    6 inches or 6 feet?
    " means inches
    ' means feet

    It's cheaper not to include it. Plus they are selling the adapter with the extension cord as an accessory.

    Just my guess though. I hope I am wrong. :)

    I just looked at both the description of what's in the box for the iPad itself and then for the 10w USB Power Adapter accessory.....

    The way I'm interpreting this is that the extension cord thingy will ONLY come with the separate accessory package, NOT in the box with the iPad.

    WHATS IN THE BOX: IPAD

    --iPad
    --Dock connector to USB Cable
    --10W USB Power Adapter
    ---------------------------------------
    WHATS IN THE BOX: 10W USB POWER ADAPTER ACCESSORY

    --10W USB Power Adapter
    --Dock connector to USB Cable
    --APPLE POWER CORD (6 ft)

    Note: this also charges iPhone and all iPod models with dock connector.

    Apple would have gave more detail if the extension cord was to come with the iPad just like they do with Macbook..

    "In the box
    MacBook Pro
    MagSafe Power Adapter, AC wall plug, and power cord"
