This adapter gives the iPad the ports you wish it had (except HDMI)

The iPad has changed the entire tablet computer industry, and according to Steve Jobs and everyone at Apple, it’s the best thing human kind has ever seen. However, one of the most common complaints about the device is that it just doesn’t have enough ports.

Here’s a new way to address that problem: the 5-in-1 Connection Kit for the iPad. It has a USB port, SD card, and microSD card slots. You can even use it with a keyboard or TV cable. This looks like a must-have kit for iPad owners though the product description notes that it’s unwise to plug in more than one external device at the same time.

Available through USB Fever for $44.99. A bit pricey? I found this one at Dealextreme and it looks almost identical, for less money. You decide.
