There are several good Bluetooth keyboard options for the iPad but the Brydge is simply cool. It aims to make your iPad look like a MacBook Pro, complete with aerospace-grade, anodized aluminum, and optional stereo speakers. Brydge connects to the iPad using a special hinge that "clicks-in" and provides almost 180 degrees of rotation. That means your iPad will be held securely, and at just the perfect angle for you to view it.
Logitech has just announced what may very well be the most nicely-designed Bluetooth iPad keyboard to date. While many keyboard accessories have tried turn turn the iPad into pseudo-laptop with an extended case or folio, Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover makes use of the iPad's built-in magnet mounts to securely cover the screen when not in use.
The Pad & Quill Contega case for the new iPad updates their spectacular iPad 2 case for Apple's third generation tablet. Granted, it's not a major change -- they've teased that will come soon enough -- but it does make the adjustments necessary to get an already fabulous case working on the latest iPad. That makes this review really simple: if you loved the Contega on your iPad 2, you'll love it on your new iPad. If you didn't try it on your previous iPad, or this is your first iPad, and you're a fan of the moleskin look and feel, then you're in for a real treat.
The Converge USB charging hub from Think Geek is a fun, futon-inspired stand for your iPhone, iPod tour or iPad. Working on an Apple mobile blog like iMore means you start to amass a lot of Apple mobile devices and even if I'm only using an iPhone and an iPad every day, keeping them both charged in an easy, elegant way has proven to be more of a challenge than I originally imagined. Converge looks like a great way to do just that.
SGP Kuel H10 is a compact, convenient, capacitive stylus for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. It's made from a special silicon with high polymer abrasion-resistant coating, which SGP says allows for smooth touch and incredible control. In my experience it's the multitouch sensors in iOS devices themselves that are the limiting factor when it comes to any stylus, but SGP has certainly made a pen to be proud of.
Are the instruments in GarageBand for iPad just not good enough for you? Amidio is in the process of making a universal iPad/iPhone case with Bluetooth connectivity and... wait for it... a dedicated ukele synthesizer app. Futulele will support 12 chords for each song, with the ability to switch chord sets easily. Sharing, recording, and effects from their previous app, OMGuitar, will be ported over to the app.

"The OverBoard waterproof case for iPad is a must-have for everything from the bath to the beach, but can be a little tough to close if your hands are covered in suds or tanning lotion."
I absolutely love waterproof cases like the OverBoard for when I'm traveling. They work exceptionally well to keep your iPad or iPad 2 clean and dry, and can double as a handy place to store some cash and credit cards as well. They also work great at home, letting you enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub while reading, surfing the web, or playing your favorite iPad game.
"The Incipio Hive Honeycomb dermaSHOT Silicone Case for iPad 2 looks interesting and feels great but it doesn't fit exceptionally well around the edges, ruining the overall affect."
The first thing you'll notice about the The Incipio Hive Honeycomb dermaSHOT Silicone Case for iPad 2 is the look. It's covered in more hexagons that a Dungeons & Dragons map. This honeycomb texture isn't superficial either -- it's thick and structural and designed to absorb shock and keep your precious iPad from being hurt by accidental bumps or drops.
