For those of you considering a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Honeycomb tablet over an Apple iPad 2, we have some good news and bad news.

The good news is that Samsung is offering accessories for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that match Apple's offerings. There are cases that convert into stands, tactile keyboard, and even a charging dock with multimedia connections.

The bad news is that--just like Apple--Samsung's tablet includes just one universal dock connection that requires pricey adapters for the privilege of connecting to a TV or loading images from SD cards.

If you're curious to see what these accessories look like in reality, we have a hands-on CNET photo gallery made just for you.
