Since Android phones come in many sizes, shapes and operating systems, there have been few accessories. But now that Android is the top smart phone format, a lot more Android add-ons are available. Here's a sampling, plus some other new gear such as a keyboard that turns an iPad into a laptop.
The only thing separating an iPad from a laptop is the physical keyboard, but most iPad keyboards don't really create a slim/trim package – until Brydge, an intriguing KickStarter project. Made from aerospace-grade aluminum, the Brydge keyboard connects to your iPad via a patent-pending push-in hinge that creates an iPad laptop, just like Apple might have designed it. A keyboard-only version is $150, one with built-in speakers is $180.
