Apple has already developed a number of accessories for its highly anticipated iPad tablet PC, including a protective case and, oddly enough, a clip-on keyboard.

The keyboard, which the tablet docks in to in a style similar to Lenovo’s Hybrid device, also includes ports to use an audio jack and a camera connection kit.

As a stand-alone device, it’s likely that the keyboard dock should help to quell the howls of rage at the lack of an integrated camera in the iPad, as well as complaints that the curved rear profile of the device makes typing on the touchscreen quite difficult.

Unfortunately, the camera connection kit, USB power cable and docking socket are all sold separately, but they can all be viewed at Apple’s website.
