During December and January, The Unofficial Apple Weblog is soliciting your nominations and votes for the best products for Mac, iPhone/iPod touch, and iPad. We'll start with nominations in a category, and then tally your votes for the top-nominated products a few days later. The winner in each category receives the highly-coveted title of TUAW Best of 2011.

In the next category for the TUAW Best of 2011 awards, we'll take a look at iPad accessories other than cases. We opened nominations for iPad cases yesterday, so if you get a chance be sure to throw your proverbial iPad case hat into the ring.

What are we talking about here? Just about anything that works with an iPad that isn't a case. Think of things like docks, adapter cables, health interfaces (like the Withings Wi-Fi Body Scale or Blood Pressure Monitor), the ION Audio Piano Apprentice or other musical instrument interfaces.

TUAW wants to hear from you -- what's your favorite iPad accessory? Leave your nomination in the comments below. Voting will start soon!

Nominations close at 11:59 PM ET on December 25, 2011.
