This is the 5-in-1 connection kit by USB Fever that I saw on Gizmodo today. It allows for USB connections (including USB keyboards), SD/SDHC cards, micro SD, TV-out, and mini-USB.
For $45, it looks like a nice, nearly universal connector for the iPad. It does state that only one device at a time can be plugged in, so no dreams of turning the iPad into a mini-desktop with this thing. It's also very difficult to tell from the pictures how large the attachment is, but it looks like it should still be very portable.
It can be purchased from USB Fever directly here.
