Hmm I know the iPhone is not exactly a small phone anyway adding another 2" in length may not be super popular. Who knows maybe as a use when needed or convenient.
The Zoomies seem to have embraced the Apple-Tax way of doing business,...$59.00 for a card reader??
The only problem is that Apple can shut them down anytime by killing their app in the store if they see that the idea is taking off and decide that THEY want the money instead. Then you'll be left with a $59.00 mini-brick.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
wow a third party ipad camera adapter kit, I smell an apple lawsuit coming.
Maybe the main use won't be for people to keep it attached all the time, carrying it around like a parasitic unborn conjoined twin on their iPhones, but for docks. I have one which was cheap ($10, if the rebate ever arrives) and has some decent speakers; my battery-dead 4G iPod lives there, with the Griffin AirClick remote control on top. Now I could sync it by running the usual USB-to-whateverApple'sconnectoriscalled cable to my computer. But I could also pop this baby there and just let it stay in place.
In fact, if I had a dock that connected my iPod to a TV set for stored videos and slide shows, this would make a pretty good addition to that. The price is a little dear (4 GB cards run under $10, so it works out to $40, assuming you need yet another SD card) but I can see a modest number of people paying to have the convenience of putting pictures from their cameras directly onto their iPhones without having to copy them to a computer in between.
And, you know, someone else is bound to come out with a cheaper model now that the ice has been broken.
"I didn't cry when Bambi's mother was shot... but I cried when HAL was turned off."
This is one of those things that should be part of the iPhone. Especially now that the iPhone 4 has a decent camera.
