Apple's nifty new iPad 2 cover had tech geeks drooling last week. But plenty of other companies are rolling out their own accessories for the tablet. Here are three that caught my eye this week:

ZAGGmate's new iPad 2 case includes an embedded physical keyboard that connects to the tablet over Bluetooth. The case, which adds about ¼ inch of thickness to the tablet, is made of aircraft-grade aluminum with a bead-blasted, anodized finish. It has high-density padding to protect your tablet from drops and a hinge that adjusts to provide multiple viewing angles. The case is available for pre-order on zagg.com. Cost: $99.99

When paired with a folio case, the minimalist 4iStrap lets you adjust the iPad at different angles or hang it on a wall or carseat headrest. You can arrange the strap to make a pocket that lets you hold the iPad comfortably with one hand. You can also use it to secure your iPad in a folio and tuck in other gadgets, including your smartphone. The strap comes in blue or red and is available for preorder on 4iconcepts.com. The company is developing an updated version for the iPad 2.  Cost: $19.95

The new Rickshaw Bagworks iPad 2 Bag has a padded front pocket that is perfectly sized to fit an iPad or iPad 2 naked. The 1-pound messenger bag also has a large compartment for books, folders, and other supplies, along with two front slots for pens or keys and a D-ring for keys or a water bottle. The bag, which is available for pre-order on the Rickshaw Bagworks website, comes in gray, black, or red, or in a variety of custom colors. Cost: $75
