By Posted 19 Apr 2010, 20:05

We have some good news for those of you planning to pick up the official camera connector kit for the Apple iPad now, as the company has today confirmed that pre-orders for the accessory are now shipping.

As reported from Apple Insider, customers who pre-ordered the item with their iPad orders, are now getting notifications from Apple that you should receive the connector kit within days.

The package contains both a Dock Connector-to-USB adapter along with a Dock Connector-based SD Card reader. It costs $29 and will enable you to connect your devices up to the iPad to transfer pictures and other media.

Have you ordered the kit from Apple? More importantly – did you get the notification from Apple yet? Do you think the kit is value for money or not?

    Yes, ordered camera connection kit when I ordered my 3G iPad. Status now shows "prepared for shipping." No email yet although did get email telling me my iPad will ship by end of April. Is it a value? Well, yes it is a good value. However, this is clearly a feature that should have been built into the iPad. Who wants to carry around a small, easy to lose adapter? I would gladly have paid twice the amount to have the feature built into my iPad.
