Griffin PowerJolt Plus
The PowerJolt Plus is the top-of-the-range model in Griffin’s range of car-chargers. It plugs into the car’s power-socket and provides a 2.1A current to charge up the iPad or an iPhone. As well as the dock connector for the iPad, the PowerJolt Plus also has a ‘pass-through’ socket that allows you to continue using the car power-socket to charge other devices at the same time. There’s also an ‘SE’ version that has a 60cm cable so that you – or, preferably, a passenger – can hold the iPad comfortably and watch videos in the car while it’s charging.

Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit
The Camera Connection Kit will be very useful for digital camera owners. It consists of two separate adaptors, each of which plugs into the dock connector on the base of the iPad. The SD Card Reader allows you to insert a memory card and transfer photos straight onto the iPad, where they can be viewed using the built-in Photos app.
The second adaptor is the Camera Connector, which has a USB port that allows you to connect a camera or other devices, such as a mobile phone that has a camera - and, unofficially, it also allows you to connect some USB keyboards as well.

"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.
