For some reason a lot of people are very excited about the fact that the iPad Camera Connection Kit works with peripherals other than cameras. In all honesty, I am not sure I understand precisely why this is so exciting—maybe you have to have an iPad to understand.
The iPad Camera Connection Kit is an adapter that allows an iPad user to connect a camera to the iPad via USB port and import photos from the camera onto the iPad. The images are imported with the equivalent of 3-megapixel resolutions and EXIF data is preserved.
The camera adapter can be used to connect other devices to the iPad, apparently. USB keyboards, headphones, headsets, and microphones can also be connected to the iPad with the camera adapter. This opens the possibility of being able to make VoIP phone calls on the iPad.
