    I just some might be interested in seeing an actual photo of the Lightning to Micro USB Adapter since mine turned up this morning and I haven't seen them posted anywhere else.

    It's really small but seems to clip on to the end of a micro usb cable pretty securely.

    Can you post a link to where I can buy that? I can't find it on the apple store website.

    Edit: Ah, never mind. I googled and realized this was meant for Europeans. No wonder I can't find it on the US apple store.

    does this support charging and sync or just charging?

    seems to be both after reading.. wonder if its just smarter to buy these vs the USA adapters.

    I want one of these! they seem incredibly useful, especially when you tend to hang out with people who have Micro-USB phones.

    Any idea why they're not for sale in the US store? Apple seems to be missing out on a profit opportunity here. Are there any US vendors selling these (imported I guess) at non-obscene prices?

    They only exist because the EU made them have Micro USB compatibility.

    I think apple wants you to buy more lightning cables for the places you need them instead of a single adapter that could be more readily carried around so your spending more money. Just a guess I don't really know. Id definitely like to have one of these though.
