Just in time for those new iPad Airs and soon-to-ship Retina iPad minis, Twelve South has introduced an all-in-one travel case for stowing your tablet along with tons of compartments for organizing your headphones, cables, and other accessories.

Keeping with the theme of the popular BookBook lineup, the Travel Journal takes the appearance of a vintage novel, both a tasteful stylistic statement and a clever security benefit. Twelve South says the dimensions are similar to that of Walter Issacson’s Steve Jobs biography and accommodates all previous models of full-sized iPads as well.

If you don’t have an iPad or just prefer to carry other accessories like for your MacBook, the BookBook Travel Journal looks great for holding your MagSafe power adapter, Magic Mouse, or other laptop accessories as well.

I’ve used Twelve South’s BookBook case back in my iPhone 4 days and found the material and build quality to be top notch. These leather cases are quite durable and tend to look better with age. Availability details and more photos below. expand full story

JBL launches first Lightning speaker docks, Belkin announces new iPad mini keyboard folio

A few new accessories launched today for Apple’s newest iOS devices. First, JBL announced new Lightning connector speaker docks for iPhone and iPad including the new $99 JBL OnBeat Micro and $199 JBL Venue LT (pictured above). The larger of the two docks supports Lightning iPads, iPhone 5, and iPod touch, while the smaller less-expensive model only supports iPhone 5 and the new iPods.

 

Belkin also announced a new accessory for the iPad mini today, an $80 folio with built-in Bluetooth keyboard. The company also claimed up to 155 hours of active battery life, and it is including a USB-to-mini-USB cable for charging. A nice touch is the ability to remove the keyboard, allowing you to comfortably position it anywhere you’d like. Earlier this month, the company also announced a new car charger kit for iOS devices with Lightning connectors.
