Another Apple iPad accessory released weeks before the actual tablet's public debut

The Apple iPad is still weeks away from release, yet more companies announce iPad accessories.  The latest company to unveil an iPad product was Booq, which recently introduced the Boa Skin XS iPad protector.

The case uses Twylon to help increase impact protection, and the interior of the Boa Skin XS has a simple non-scratch interior that helps protect the iPad while its inside another case.

"With our proven track record for creating stylish, functional laptop bags and backpacks, and considering the limited cosmetic protection hard shell or silicone cases offer, it's only fitting that we are leading the charge with iPad accessories," said Thorsten Trotzenberg, Booq CEO, in a statement.

The Boa Skin XS is available now for $29.95.

I guess an iPad protector is ideal if you don't have a notebook bag or backpack designed with a notebook pouch or divider.  

Booq bags are designed by Jake Orak, young man who spends his days relaxing, surfing and designing custom laptop bags.  Orak and Trotzenberg have created a very strong working duo, but I'm curious to hear what you guys think about the latest Booq product.  I'm still not convinced consumers are willing to spend money on it, but we'll see how the Booq Boa Skin XS does.

I think it's unbelievable how Apple continues to create products that accessory makers absolutely flock to.  Each time a new Apple iPod, for example, is announced to the public, dozens of products are immediately announced and launched.  The iPad has dozens of accessories ranging from cases and covers to custom bags and speakers -- but it still hasn't been released.

Are you willing to spend an extra $30 for an iPad protector?

No... And I wouldn't spend $30 on an iPad either.

$30 for an ipad would make the perfect car PC if you can fit it on the dashboard, Ferrari already does this with the ipod touch, but its screen is a little too small to use in the car, whereas ipad is perfect.

Does the $30.00 liner boost the absorbancy of the pad even further? It is the only reason I can see for it.

We need to know!

Now that's a sweet resume!

And his boss - what a name! Thorsten Trotzenberg was probably one of the original inspirations for the upper-class-twit of the year competitions (for old Python fans...)

Those huge pockets finally come in handy for their gold plated iPads.
