3-In-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit

For the iPad lovers out there, here's a new device that provides one basic improvement over the original that was developed and sold by Apple.  This is the 3-In-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit.  The device connects to the base of the iPad in the docking slot and provides a USB connection, SD card slot, and a microSD slot.  The advantage of the microSD is that it allows you to access the tiny cards that most of us are now carrying in our phones.  Personally, I also like the idea that it comes in black, but that's just me.
The downside?  It won't be available until after Christmas, so if you are looking for a gift for the iPad lover in your life, you'll have to wait until their birthday or something.
Cost is $30, which is the same price as the Apple version that has only USB and SD slots.
I still think that it was a mistake for the first generation of iPad to be built without a USB port, a situation that rumors say will be fixed this spring when the next version hits the streets.  However, for those of us steadfastly ensconced in the Early Adopter Camp,  this is as good as it gets.
