    Hi all,

    I'm new! I just got an iPad 2 and am hoping to get recommendations on the coolest accessories. I am looking at stands, cases, gadgets. Things that I can plug in and extend functionality. Cool stuff.

    Thanks in advance!

    I recommend using a third party case, as the apple one only protects the screen

    the apple camera connection kit, if you have use for it

    a stylus to help keep the screen clean

    Definitely a Bluetooth keyboard - I have a folding one that's great for taking 'out and about' with the iPad. It's essential if you have a lot of typing to do and you're a touch typist.

    ah yes, if your a touch typist, get a keyboard, if you don't, after a while of 2 finger prodding typing, you will forget how to touch type :( or at least type much slower and keep making mistakes... or at least that is the case for me

    Wow, these are some great ideas, thanks everyone!! My son in law told me about that camera connection kit. He said it gives your iPad a USB connection.

    Be careful - USB, but not as your PC knows it. You can connect to a digital camera and download photos or videos only. No general file downloading - unless you jail break your iPad.

    I just got my Bluetooth keyboard - not an official Apple one but it's great and I don't know how I survived without it! I can quickly change to using it on my iPhone (reply to lengthy SMS) then back again. I also have the camera connection kit, which is essentially two connections, which I use for photos and videos. I want a leather case which works as a stand and allows me to set different positions, if that is possible.

    As a long-time PC fanatic, I really love my iPad!
