Mic Gadget 3-in-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit Adds SD Card and USB to Your Tablet
December 15th, 2010
I really like my iPad but I have no illusions that the thing is perfect. There are many details I would change about the tablet if I could. One of those things is support for a memory card if for nothing other than putting photos onto my iPad and other things like music. It would be great if the memory card could be used for storage too.
Apple has the iPad Camera Connection Kit that adds USB to the iPad for directly connecting your camera. A company called MIC Gadget has unveiled its own accessory that is similar to that official Apple camera kit and the MIC Gadget offering is called the 3-in-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit. The thing adds a USB port for your camera like the official Apple accessory.
However, it also adds a microSD card reader also with a normal SD card reader for your memory card needs. This is about as close as we are likely to an integrated memory card reader on the iPad.
You can pre-order in black or white colors for $29.90 and the thing is set to ship sometime after Christmas.
