accessories that can be connected / added to iPad 2 & iPad 3
Posted on 2012-04-06
Can I connect an external mouse & keyboard to an iPad2
or iPad3? I can still type faster on a conventional keyboard
that touch screen (even a virtual keyboard in a touch screen
is much slower to type on compared to conventional keyboard).
can I connect a mouse to an iPad? Perhaps not a USB or is
there a 3rd party 'wireless mouse' for iPad out there somewhere?
if for some reason I wanted to connect my 3G external modem to
an iPad, is this possible? I've seen WiFi broadband router which we
can connect a few USB 3G modem and Windows laptops can connect
to the WiFi service broadcast by this broadband router which accesses
the Internet via the 3G USB modem(s) connected to it. Anyone can
suggest any specific model of such modems that are battery operated
& as small as possible (possibly palm-size or smaller, just like those
little Huawei ones). Or is there any PDA mobile phone (models & the
required apps) that can offer such WiFi service (so I can use my mobile
phone as sort of broadband router/gateway for the iPads) : does an
iPhone offer such feature? I find it not so worth it to pay US$180-200
more to have a built-in 4G modem for iPad3.
Can I have a microphone (& earphone) connected to an iPad2/3 & then
make phone calls using the iPad if the iPad has a SIM card (is this a
microSIM just like the ones needed for iPhone ?)? What app is needed
to enable the iPad work as a phone?
