iPad Camera Connection Kit Provides Limited USB Keyboard, Headset SupportS

iPad users looking to get a little extra mileage out of the $30 Camera Connection kit will be pleased to know that the USB dongle provides some limited support for certain USB keyboards and headsets.

According to a report out of TUAW, typing was possible on the iPad via a USB keyboard, as was USB audio. A Skype call was also completed successfully using a USB headset, but an external hard drive couldn't connect.

Sounds like it's hit-or-miss, trial and error for now, although you'll have to wait to try it out: Most shipments are apparently still two to three weeks away. [TUAW via Engadget]
