Third party accessory companies have profited immensely from Apple’s iPod and iPhone lines of products, and now they are preparing for next month’s launch of the iPad with an assortment of products, including cases, chargers and more.


With 1-5 million iPads sold the first year, this could generate a lot of revenue for these companies. iPods and iPhones already create a market for accessories that is almost $4 billion a year.

And the profit margins are 70-90%! Not bad at all.
