However, it's not just for tablets  - the new Boombox and headset can be used for iPhone and and iPod touch also.

Here's the lowdown:

Wireless Boombox

Boombox is pretty cool. It lets you use iPad or iPhone as a touch screen player and remote control to wirelessly stream audio via Bluetooth.

The wireless the speaker to be placed anywhere - up to 33 feet or 10m away and tunes will flow for up to six hours straight via eight custom-designed drivers delivering separate sound frequencies.

Sound wise, it promises a rich, full mid range and deep powerful bass and at $199.95 its not a bad price, from Big W and WOW.

Tablet Speaker

Logitech tablet speaker is an on-the- go compact, clip-on device  which attaches to your iPad but is compatible with other tablets also, meaning this is one for the Androids.

The speaker has  up to eight hours of battery life depending on usage, says Logitech, and charges from iPad via USB. It costs $49.95.

Keyboard Case for iPad 2

Created in collaboration with ZAGG, the case is a sleek aluminum cover with "military-grade" padding. Its protective case wraps around the iPad 2 to cover the screen and sides, and uses Bluetooth connectivity to pair the keyboard quickly and has an intuitive keyboard layout and improved keystrokes.

It also has a recess just behind the keyboard that props up the iPad 2 in portrait or landscape mode.The case costs $129.95 from Big W, Dick Smith, Myer and Officeworks.

Speaker Stand for iPad

This made-for-iPad Apple certified stand turns the iPad into a hands-free music, movies, and charging station. Costing $99.99, the speaker stand is ultra portable, meaning the user can listen to music while cooking in the kitchen or to watch movies in bed.

It also comes with in-built charging dock and can be angled however the user wishes. Volume and control buttons are right on the front and it also comes with a 3.5mm aux input jack.

Wireless Headset

The Logitech Headset for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and other Bluetooth devices lets the user roam freely without the hassle of cords, becoming immersed in music, videos, games and calls.

The headset's laser-tuned drivers produce rich stereo sound while minimising distortion. thanks to the noise-canceling microphone that reduces background noise. A six-hour rechargeable battery (depending on conditions and usage) means the device can be used longer, at home or on the go and will set you back $99.99.

The Logitech line up are available now from various outlets including Big W, Dick Smith, Myer, WOW and Officeworks. Check local stockists for info.

"We know people love their tablets. One of the things they do most is use them to enjoy entertainment content - whether that's watching a movie, sharing music, or listening to an audio book on the go," said Annabelle Woods, Logitech Australia, General Manager.

"Our lineup of accessories has an option for everyone that can make entertainment even more enjoyable."
