Accessory Makers Queue Up for iPad

Although Apple’s (AAPL) new tablet won’t be available for at least another two months, vendors are already racing to stoke demand for iPad accessories.

New York-based iLuv Creative Technology unveiled on Thursday a new line of iPad products, including hard and soft carrying cases and screen protectors. It’s also selling water-resistant sleeves that have two front cover pockets for accessories and a secure lip to keep the iPad protected while on the move. The products, which will be available next month, each cost $20 to $40.
