Usb And Ipad
Apple’s iPad is a pretty exciting device with many features that make it attractive to customers. However, it still lacks a few features that can be considered useful. For example, you will find no USB ports that would make it much simpler to transfer information between iPads and computers. Apparently, Apple wanted to keep the iPad similar to the other iOS devices it makes available by putting at the disposal of users only a Dock Connector. Fortunately the market that has been built around the iPad is pretty imaginative and has made available a few shortcuts that you can use in order to simulate the USB magic on your iPad.
One of these shortcuts is represented by the iPad USB Flash Drive that was just recently released on the market. It’s not a flash drive in the true meaning of the word because the iPad doesn’t come equipped with USB ports, but it acts as a USB drive. What’s designed to do is wirelessly connect to the Apple tablet and then just like a usual flash drive allow the storage and transfer of data files and multimedia content. The storage space that’s offered by this innovative flash drive for iPads varies between 8GB and 32GB. That means you will finally be able to expand the storage space of the iPad. That’s certainly good news. The bad news is that the price you will have to pay for the functionality is not affordable at all. This iPad USB Flash drive that can be found on Hammacher Schlemmer is available in exchange for $159.95.
If you are interested in a method that makes available on the iPad USB functionality that’s even closer to traditional USB features, you should consider investing in the iPad Camera Connection Kit made available by Apple. This iPad accessory was designed for making possible photo transfers between virtually any camera and the iPad. However, inquisitive minds have discovered that the kit can be hijacked and used for the purpose of connecting other USB devices to the iPad. Some of those that have launched and tested the theory have reported that you will be able to use the port made available by the Apple Camera Connection kit for hooking up to your iPad USB devices like speakers and microphones. Also on the list are included USB keyboards that represent an alternative for the Bluetooth keyboards that the iPad supports by default. This is proof that with a little imagination you can use the same investment for multiple purposes. Hopefully Apple will seriously consider developing in the future more iPad support for USB accessories. That’s a change many interested customers are waiting for more or less patiently.
