    The pricing seems very reasonable, but I'm sure users would have hoped for some of accessories be included with the iPad right out of the box :)

    Does anybody know how portable the keyboard dock will be?

    It doesn't look portable at all. For a small media device to surf the net, grab email, and such things I would think they would make a lot accessories very portable.

    I think this might be it:

    iPad Camera Connection Kit ($29)

    The Camera Connection Kit consists of a pair of dongles that will plug in to your dock, or into the 30-pin connector port at the base of your iPad.

    One dongle will allow you to import photos directly from your camera’s USB cable, while the other will let you pull content from an SD card. Juggling the pair of to handle such mundane tasks is disappointing, to say nothing of having to pony up $30 for the inconvenience.

    Everything is a reasonable price but the case is a bit too pricey.I was hoping for a 20-30 price value.

    @Dan: You dont think the case isnt a tad pricey?

    I already have a wireless keyboard I use with my iMac. I understand it can be used with the iPad. But, will it work when the iPad is in a dock for recharging.
    By the way, I think I paid $75 for the wireless keyboard. Got it as my iMac was set up on an old TV cart in the den next to my Barcalounge. So, that way I didn't have to get tangled up with a cord. Worked out well for that. Now, I am set up on a desk again, and I'm still using the wireless keyboard. Just got used to it, and really don't miss the tangle of wires.

    There's one thing that bothers me with the keyboard dock. I'll buy it but the angle of the iPad doesn't seem to be adjustable.

    Apple will give you for free the choice to buy or don't buy their product's .... other than this except this not so many things will be free from Apple , just the right to admire it in you're local Apple store :D
