Together with the announcement of the Apple iPad, CEO Steve Jobs also unveiled three accessories for the new tablet. The first is the iPad Dock that lets you dock and charge the device, allowing it to stand so it can function as a photo frame as well.

The second, and probably most useful of the three, is a keyboard dock. This gives a full QWERTY keyboard for touch typing while charging the iPad and will let users thump out long documents without having to rely on the virtual onscreen keypad.

The last one is a carrying case that can be folded to let the iPad stand on a table for watching videos.

If there's one thing you can be sure about Apple products, it's that there will be a flood of third-party accessories very soon. One of the things we hope to see soon is a foldable portable keyboard like the Stowaway model popular during Palm's heyday.
