If you have an Apple iPad, the chances are you'll have some kind of accessory to protect it. While a Jiffy bag would do, you'll probably be inclined to consider something more enduring. Typing on a piece of glass has a few shortcomings too – not only the lack of tactile responsiveness but the fact that the virtual keyboard …
From the photo,
It looked like the case was covering the back facing camera, this is a big big failure with all the cases I've looked at.
that's a lot for a case, but it comes with a keyboard. I find InCase Origami Workstation interesting too, link: http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/origami-workstation-cl57934
taking back my previous comment
it's for keyboard only, booooooo retard me
The smell will be the fungicide they spray the leather with.
I believe they use it to prevent it rotting on its seabound journey from the Far East. Sometimes they get a bit carried away (like the leather sofas recently that gave people chemical burns).
Still at least it keeps it from rotting though, eh!...
It looks a bit like a laptop
A touch-screen laptop, no less!
I've heard it can fall to pieces pretty easily though, best to stick to a ThinkPad.
Turn your Ipad into a laptop
And have two batteries to worry about.
While on the subject of worries: padding usually makes a good thermal insulator as does the glass screen. How does the heat from inside the iPad get out? Did you check the temperature is gets too when playing video / minting bitcoins?
The most useful accessory combination for an iPad2 is to turn it into a netbook, only more expensive and less convenient. Genius.
had the first version of this for my ipad1
and while it worked very well, as the review says the new version does, i did find it rather pointless having a bluetooth keyboard attached to my ipad.
the device is a touchscreen device, afterall, and the majority of uses involve touching the screen, which isn't overly comfortable when propped up for typing.
so in the end, i've got a much lighter and form-fitting cover and have grown to get used to typing on the on screen keyboard
^^This. There is no point getting an iPad if you have to stick all these pointless accessories to it. A keyboard may look handy, but it turns it into a laptop or netbook, which defeats the point of tablet. I have considered getting a keyboard for my ipad as i have to write short articles while commuting and I came to the conclusion that if you want the keyboard, you have to either get used to the touch screen or buy a netbook/laptop.
Oooh. It turns your iPad into an EeePad Transformer.
Without the extra batteries, SD Card port, USB ports etc of course.
No and thrice no!
No no no no ... No! If I wanted a laptop I would have bought one.
(plus if you need a case there are much better designed / quality ones out there)
Who in their right mind would buy anything from a company called iLuv?
Nasty chavy cheap crap.
Jesus wept. I got a tablet AND a keyboard/case for £80 off Amazon.
That picture looks...
Hauntingly familiar. As if I've seen something like it before. Something portable, with a keyboard... No. Damn, it's gone. It'll come to me. Wait.
Ah! A LAPTOP! Such as you can buy at your local PC Illiterates for half the price of a fondleslab.
Mind you, this doesn't look like it would actually stand up on your lap. Maybe someone can construct something with a hinge or something. Don't you LOVE innovation?
So basically you just turned your fondleslab into a laptop
easy solution then make a netbook with a touch screen , and a detachable keyboard,
Sorry Mr Jobs, my Idea, pinch it and I will sue your sorry ass
Cheap and more expensive alternatives
There's a Kensington version that is $100 and then theres a dealextreme version that's $40. Still, where's the projection keyboard?
