Look what just popped up on Amazon: A company called Nanotch is offering pre-orders for 30-pin to Lightning adapters. There had been concern when a report last month said the 9-pin adapters were only going to cost $10 each and Apple would be the sole manufacturer, but neither looks to be true.
The company listed the following features:
- Lightning cable adapter for newest generation of Apple products.
- Adapter to use your new Apple products with older accessories.
- Use your iPhone 5 with older models of accessories.
- 20cm cord.
- Small adapter for easy connection.
There was some controversy in the first few hours of the iPhone 5 pre-orders because Apple’s Store website said a 30-pin adapter was included with the iPhone 5. Apple quickly removed the error but confused some customers in the process.
The Nanotch item is currently listed for pre-order. As with most third-party Amazon sales, buyer beware.
Update: Ebay has these as well and another item, which more closely resembles Apple’s adapter, is from seller ‘iTronz” below and ships next week:
