Apple iPad camera connection kit review

by 874 comments

Typically Apple, the iPad camera connection kit was posted in their online store with only the bare minimum of information. I went ahead and bought one anyway and now that I’ve been using it for a week now, I’m ready to pass on everything you may need to know about this little bit of hardware (plus some things you may never need).

The BlackPad, is still just hearsay but the rumors keep coming. Reportedly, Quanta will be manufacturing the BlackBerry tablet and some of the specs have changed since we last heard about it (i.e. a bigger screen), there’s a release date and a price (all unofficial of course)…

So, the screen has grown to 9.7” from the 8.9” we originally heard, and that makes it exactly the same size as the iPad screen (no info on the resolution yet). It will feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth plus some sort of tethering, as you can use 3G connection through a BlackBerry smartphone. Read more »
