Apple's Camera Connection Kit for iPad

I have ordered and they are on its way to SG.

From what I gathered from Macrumors, it can do more than what expected.

- USB headphone/headset will work on the iPad through the connection kit. Skype phone call was tested and "the quality was just terrific"

- USB keyboards can be used

- iLounge had some early notes which revealed that the iPad emails pictures out at 2048x1536 resolution rather than the iPhone's 800x600 resolution, but if you copy/paste the images into an email, you can get full resolution images emailed out.

- Once you connect to your Mac, iPhoto brings in full resolution images with EXIF information intact.

stanleyj,

I'll join in...once you read comics and new york times on it, you will love so much you will carry it everywhere and find a reason to use it...

After that comes the hunt for better, nicer casing, and more accessories for it.... ;p

There is "no file system". It's abstracted by the apps. Hence everything has to be transferred to the app. I have apps like goodreader to read PDF files, pages, numbers, keynotes for ms equivalent - word, excel, PowerPoint, etc. Files can be transferred wirelessly to the pad via apps or via iTunes when you connect using USB.
