iPad 2 Accessories Surge: Explore the Latest Add-Ons

Immediately after Steve Jobs concluded his presentation at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, our team at TUAW started receiving updates about new iPad 2 accessories. Although these accessories may not be as eye-catching as the bath tub lid-inspired Smart Covers, they are certainly worth a look.

Booq has introduced an attractive folio case for the iPad 2 that cleverly incorporates a traditional paper notepad. The Booqpad for iPad 2 is priced starting at $49.95, with a premium version available for $99.95. The notepad is designed to match the size of the iPad screen and features perforated pages for easy removal.

Dave Caolo, known for his love of cool notebooks, has been humorously warned by his wife Mia to steer clear of purchasing one.

Scosche has also embraced the iPad 2 release with an array of new products. The foldIO P2, available for $44.99, is a folio case offered in either black or white leather, or a carbon fiber texture, featuring a suede interior and adjustable viewing angles. The glosSEE P2 series, priced at $39.99, offers a rubbery texture in five vibrant colors. The snapSHIELD P2, also $29.99, features a hard polycarbonate shell available in the same range of colors.

Notably, the $59.99 Scosche freeKEY water-resistant roll-up Bluetooth keyboard is particularly intriguing.

Targus has not been left behind, launching its own line of iPad 2 accessories. Their new 360° Rotating Stand / Case for iPad 2 is priced at $59.99, and the Protective Cover / Stand for iPad 2 for $39.99, and the Protective TPU Skin for $24.99.
