Amazon iPad 2 Summary
At the same time that the new iPad 2 is revealed to the public, new Amazon Ipad 2 accessories have appeared on the populare retailer site. Here is a summary or short guide of the more distinctive iPad accessories to be announced.
The Amazon Ipad 2 Digital AV Adapter
The new Digital AV Adapter is a cable that is used to connect the iPad 2 to users’ TV monitors or other HDMI-ready display units. Unlike other iPad accessories it has video mirroring support which means that whatever is displayed on the device can also be seen on the screen, be it movies playing, presentations being shown, websites displayed or even games played. This iPad accessory has an HDMI port that connects to the 30-pin port on the iPad. When plugged in, it works with both video and audio without need for any other configuration.
The Digital AV Adapter is not exclusive to the iPad2 and will work with the original iPad, the iPhone4 as well as the 4th generation iPod Touch. It retails for $39 from Apple.
The Amazon iPad 2 Smart Cover
Amongst the new iPad accessories, this new iPad 2 accessory has created the most buzz due to the way it works completely in sync with the iPad 2 over and above its primary purpose of protecting the device. It automatically sends the iPad to sleep when the device is placed on it and through the magnetic connection adheres to the iPad securely. The iPad wakes up ready to be used as soon as you remove the smart cover.
Apple is lauding the smart cover as a better alternative to the conventional bulky iPad case with its new sleek and slim design. With its design and the way the magnets function, it can be folded over and adheres to the back of the iPad and serves as a stand for the device making activities like movie watching, video calling and typing easier to do. The smart cover sells for $39.
Amazon iPad 2 Dock
With the new smaller Amazon iPad 2, Apple also released the new Dock to fit the device. Like many of the other iPad accessories, the dock is designed for convenience and accessibility to ports for charging, synching and connecting to external speakers. It works with other IPad accessories too.
Conventional iPad Accessories
Those who are upgrading to the Amazon iPad 2 need not worry if they need to buy all the new iPad 2 accessories. Conventional accessories for the original iPad 2 like the camera connection kit, AVG Adapter, wireless keyboard and other items will still be available for the Amazon iPad 2
