Apple’s USB Adapter for iPad

Yup, today was the day that Apple announced their iPad product.  The very first thing we noticed was a lack of USB ports for storage and connection; however, Job’s didn’t forget it.

Apple iPad USB adapter

The iPad camera connection kit comes with a male adapter card to connect either USB or SD cards.  Given the slim dimensions of the iPad we can understand the lack of design integration for USB, but SD or even microSD, now that makes sense.  Our only conclusion is a lack of real-estate on the PCBA used to make the iPad. Interesting side note:  Apple has the exclusive patent on the 30 pin female connector it uses and plans to NEVER license it out.  I know the USB kit has a male connector, it just reminded me of reading that info a couple weeks back.
