Apple iPad 2 Smart Cover

Apple’s own Smart Cover makes the iPad do things no other cover can. The price ranges from $39 to $69 (depending on material, either polyurethane or Italian leather) and comes in a variety of colors. This stylish cover is very thin, and also has safe magnetization, so it can be taken off and reapplied with ease. It can also be converted into a stand, allowing you to sit back and watch movies or browse through apps with ease.

Digital AV Adapter

Put your slides, movies, photos, and everything else that fills your iPad 2 screen on an even bigger screen — your HDTV. The Apple Digital AV Adapter mirrors exactly what you see on iPad 2 so that everyone in the room can enjoy it on your widescreen TV, video projection screen, or other HDMI-compatible display.The Apple Digital AV Adapter also supports video out for iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch.

iPad Keyboard Dock

The iPad keyboard dock combines a dock for charging your iPad 2 with a full-size keyboard, which includes special keys that activate iPad features. The dock has a rear 30-pin connector, which lets you connect to an electrical outlet using the USB Power Adapter, sync to your computer, and use accessories like the iPad Camera Connection Kit.

Piel Frama Case

If style is your top priority, the Piel Frama iPad case is the case for you. Handmade using natural Spanish leather, the Piel Frama case provides protection and professional looks for your iPad. Heels not included.

CoulVue iPad 2 Car Mount

Last but definitely not least, if you’re one of those on-the-go folks that absolutely need to keep someone entertained with the iPad 2 while traveling, TouCoul’s CoulVue iPad 2 car mount is a must. It easily mounts to the back of any standard car headrest, allowing back seat travelers to watch movies or browse through apps while conveniently keeping the tablet in place. That’ll keep kids from screaming, “Are we there yet?” over and over, right? TouCoul will be taking pre-orders for the Car Mount in April, and they should be available for the original iPad as well, starting later this month.
