Belkin Screen Overlay For iPad
I’ve been absolutely paranoid about damaging my iPad’s pristine screen since the moment it first arrived, so a screen overlay that would help to protect the screen from scratches and other types of finger-nastiness is right at the top of my list of essential accessories. The overlay includes a cleaning cloth and a little smoothing card to help get those annoying bubbles out from under the overlay – but it’s a bit annoying that the US price of $20 has been converted straight into sterling at £20.

Creative Labs ZiiSound D5
The ZiiSound D5 is the flagship model in Creative Labs’ new range of Bluetooth speaker systems - there are less expensive models starting at under £100. You can pair the iPad with the D5 by using the iPad’s built-in Bluetooth radio, but Creative also supplies the D5 with a separate dongle that plugs into the iPad’s dock connector, allowing it to use the high-quality Apt-X codec for optimum sound quality. The D5 also has a built-in dock for an ordinary iPhone or iPod, and a secondary audio input for connecting to a CD player or other audio source. And, yes, it sounds pretty good too.

"Can you believe that Apple doesn’t even include a set of headphones with the iPad?"
thank christ for that - since if they had, it would be the standard apple earphones - the sound polluting scourge of the last 10 years.
a second portable device that can show flash websites would be an essential 'extra' if i accidentally owned an ipad.
ZAGG Invisible Shield
Personally, I've put the ZAGG overlays on mine, if the price looks a bit steep it's because you get overlays for front and back, and a special solution to apply them with that makes they really easy to put on. Also the price stated doesn't just get translated into the same pound value when you order.
I'll also say what about the Apple slip case?....it doubles as a stand or puts the iPad on a slant to make typing easier, and looks very nice too.
What Brits should do first ...
Learn to read Australian before you go into the store. Knowing the Retail Strategy can save you quite a bit of money.
£500 or so quid for a device with no real purpose. And another "essential" £600 or so to make it useable for that "no real" defined purpose.
Makes my £500 laptop seem an eminently better deal.
But hey... it's not news that Apple fans have more money than sense.
