3-in-1 Camera Connection Kit for the iPad

When Apple designed the iPad, they opted for simplicity and omitted things like a USB port or memory card slots. This made it more tedious for photographers to transfer a large number of photographs onto their iPads, since the Camera Connection Kit needed for USB and SD Card support comes in two separate dongles. Luckily, there’s a made-in-China knockoff that can ease a little of the pain — the 3-in-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit combines the two dongles into one nicely designed apparatus. Available in both black and white, it comes with a USB port, a SD Card slot, and a Micro SD Card slot. Pick one up over at the M.I.C Gadget store for $29.90.

Apple Releases Overpriced Camera Connection Kit for the iPad

Over the weekend Apple finally made the iPad Camera Connection Kit available for pre-order. The kit, which will ship “late April”, includes two connectors: a USB connector and a SD Card reader. If you use some other memory card, you’ll need to plug your existing card reader into the USB connector. So how much do these connectors cost? A mere $29 plus tax.

Any guesses as to how much it costs to manufacture these little connectors?
