Nikon has released a new affordable, fixed focal length AF-S micro lens for Nikon DX-format cameras. The new prime lens is a Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G Micro lens with an AF-S Silent Wave Motor built-in.

Transform Your iPad 2 Into Your Very Own MacBook Air

Well not really, but you get the idea. This Aluminum KeyBoard Buddy case for the iPad 2 will add a slim, black chiclet style keyboard incased inside an aluminum shell that will perfectly match your iPad 2 to create a one-of-a-kind MacBook Air-like work pad that runs iOS. Wonderful, isn't it? For $49.90, the Bluetooth enabled Aluminum KeyBoard Buddy keyboard case features a full-sized keyboard boasting a built-in, USB rechargeable battery that is said to last several weeks on a single charge. It's slim, eye catching and it won't put a dent in your bank. Too bad it doesn't have backlit keys though.

The other little drawback to this keyboard case is that it doesn't have a hinged design like other keyboard cases for the iPad 2 such as the ClamCase. Head on over to M.I.C Gadget for the full review of the Aluminum KeyBoard Buddy. Catch the video right after the jump!

White iPhone 4 Officially Out

Well, well, well. We've got some good news for those who have been waiting endlessly for Apple's white iPhone 4. Apple has officially announced that the white iPhone 4 will be available to purchase starting tomorrow at Apple retail stores and online. Looks like Apple has redesigned the proximity sensor above the earpiece to be much more sleeker and got rid of the grille it had before when Apple released the iPhone 4. I think I'll stick to me black one for now.


Atomic Diamondback, The Most Expensive Aluminum iPhone 4 Case

Oh yes, good looks are going to cost you a pretty penny these days and Atomic's new Diamondback aluminun hybrid case for the Verizon and AT&T iPhone 4 is the most expensive aluminum case for the iPhone 4 yet. The Diamondback is a full bodied case and not a bumper this time like Atomic's other offerings. The multi-dimensional back design is made using a CNC machine with a dedicated sleep/wake button which is shaped like a diamond, hence the name. It's available in 4 different colors for a whopping $200. If you've got the cash, expect the Diamondback to start shipping in about 2-4 weeks.


Hermes iPad 2 Leather Case Costs More Than Your iPad 2

You thought Vaja's luxurious leather sleeves and cases were expensive? The Hermes leather iPad 2 case costs a whopping $1,400 for the Hermes Station - a book-style case that doubles as a stand (pictured above). Oh but Hermes is a luxury leather maker in Paris so it's understandable, right? If you don't have that kind of dough for a leather case, maybe Hermes' leather sleeve, the Swift (pictured below), will be in your price range at just $820. At least it's available in 10 different colors.
