The A-Frame makes a good alternative to Apple’s own dock. It’s a sturdy aluminium easel that works well for displaying videos and photos, or simply storing the iPad while you charge it up - I’ve also found it handy for reading recipes off the screen when I’m in the kitchen. You can also lay the A-Frame flat on a table, where it tilts the screen slightly upwards to provide a more comfortable angle for typing. It’s got rubber grips that hold the iPad securely in either landscape or portrait mode, but still leave the dock connector free for charging and syncing.

Can you believe that Apple doesn’t even include a set of headphones with the iPad? The iPad does have a standard audio jack for connecting headphones, but it seems to me that the wireless Jabra Halo is the ideal complement for the elegant design of the iPad. Like the iPad, the Bluetooth-equipped Halo has touch-sensitive controls that allow you to adjust the volume simply by sliding your finger up or down on the right-hand earpiece. The headset folds flat when not in use, so it’s easy to carry, and also has a standard audio jack for use with other devices that don’t support Bluetooth.

"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.
