Pure-Fi Mobile speakers connect wirelessly to your iPad using A2DP
(stereo) Bluetooth. With a range of 33 feet (10 m) and dual 2-inch (5.1
cm) active drivers and 2-inch (5.1 cm) pressure drivers, the Pure-Fi
Mobile provides quality sound anywhere. Built-in batteries last 12
hours, and a 3.5 mm jack can also be used for input. The unit can even
act as a computer speaker, getting audio and power from a USB cable,
and includes two built-in microphones. Pure-Fi Mobile comes with a
padded carrying case and can be found online for $125.03 at Amazon.com.
iTrip FM Transmitter by Griffin is the leader in this technology. If
your car stereo doesn't support an auxiliary cable or an iPod
connection, an FM transmitter is your cheapest solution for getting the
iPad's music to be transmitted through your car radio. There are
cheaper FM transmitters available, but the Griffin line is solid and
dependable. Amazon features the Griffin iTrip FM for iPods, iPhones and
iPads at $31.99. (Buy here)
iPad Car Charger by OrionGadgets is dependable product. A car charger
is a must-have iPad accessory for those who want to use their iPad on
long car trips. And even if you aren't planning a lot of traveling,
this will keep the iPad charged while driving around town. If you
aren't plugging the iPad into your car radio through an FM transmitter
or direct connection, this is a great way to keep it charged. Priced at
$3.99 at Amazon it's a reasonable purchase. (Buy here)
iPad Case from Janine King Designs offers superior protection for your
Apple iPad. Special foam core provides scratch & bump protection
with minimal weight and bulk. Convenient exterior zipper compartment
givers the owner a significant amount of extra space for power cords
and/or personal items like cell phone, keys, etc. Practical and
protective yet with a slim sleek profile. Available in lots of fabrics
and patterns. Etsy is currently selling them at $39.99 - but if you
like this type of case, you might want to act fast, as it appears they
may be running out of inventory.
spending your hard-earned savings or (worse yet) going into debt as
result of purchasing a good number of these accessories, you may want
to alert your friends, family and associates, that you are now
officially broke. With an "iBroke" t-shirt, mug, tie or mouse pad, you
won't even have to tell them why? They'll figure it out pretty quick. Google Products is selling "iBroke" merchandise ranging from $13 on the mousepads to $35 on the outerwear. Enjoy.
Although, not one of the TOP TEN, I do recommend you consider Apple's software iWork.
Since the iPad’s lack of multi-tasking makes it unlikely to replace the
laptop altogether, Apple is offering a special version of iWork (iWork
'09) for the device. It's an opportunity to get some work done, when
you are away from your home or office computer, with a screen larger
than you currently have on your cellphone.
For other hotly desired accessories, I would suggest you head over to the Apple Store where you can pre-order these some of the TOP TEN accessories and others.
