    HyperDrive

    Unfortunately it's not available yet...But the ones with a screen and card slots are.
    Now, that's very nice!

    There's one thing nagging me though. How come these guys have managed to make the iPad see the drive and no one has in almost a year? Is what they say it can do legitimate? Does it need an app to run?...
    Not white, not black just passionate shades of grey...

    By coincidence I just purchased a 250 Gig HyperDrive COLORSPACE UDMA from Amazon.com to do exactly the same thing you suggest. There's a special 120 Gig version design specifically to transfer photos to your iPad. I have scheduled a 9 day Green Tortoise bus tour of the Canyons of the West for July. The hyperdrive is the fastest backup device on the market, is rechargeable & will allow you to copy the full 250 Gigs on a single charge. It has the two most common memory card readers onboard. Another alternative I have coming in an Eye-Fi memory card with built-in wi-fi that uploads your photos to your computer or online storage site when you are within range of a wi-fi hotspot, ie, Starbucks, McDonalds, any motel, etc.

    Hey, there are free phone apps now (Whistle) and a GPS unit that plugs into the iPad. There's an Eye-Fi SD memory card with a built in wi-fi network transmitter that uploads a camera's photos to your computer or online storage site. Stuff has come a long way to a point where you have to start questioning the need for a laptop anymore.

    ...or, just buy more memory cards, they are the cheapest storage. We dumped 4500 pics ( mostly 8 to 15 MP jpg's ) on our 32 last year. Along with a few movies and a bunch of books. No prob. In fact still have the images on the cards. Plus if you are vacationing in civilization, you can always get them burned to a disc at a Walgreens!

    Hi why don't you use an online back up service like dropbox iDisk or even piccassa to upload your pictures on to. That's what I do when I'm away. From my dslr to my iPad keep some that I like on the iPad and upload the rest to dropbox and then when I get home they are automatically synced to my desktop.

    What type of phone do you have? It turns out I already have a solution for myself and I didn't even realize it

    I have a Nokia N8 phone. It has USB host capabilities. I can connect USB hubs, thumb drives, card reader or an external HD with included cables.
