Cool new iPad case with integrated Bluetooth keyboard further threatens netbooks

With an integrated Bluetooth 2.0 Keyboard which seamlessly connects with the iPad for quicker and more comfortable typing – this innovative folio case is ideal for people who regularly use their iPad for e-mailing, making notes and writing documents.

The clever design of this multi-functional case allows it to protect the iPad, whilst it can easily convert into the laptop style postion. If you don’t need the Keyboard it simply folds behind the iPad and out of sight.

Product Features:
– Stylish & streamlined protective leather case designed for iPad.
– Built-in Bluetooth 2.0 Silicone Keyboard.
– Quiet keystrokes, dust-proof & spill-proof.
– Durable Leather Style Exterior.
– Magnetic fastening secures case closed.
– Rechargeable battery lasts for approximately 45 hours per charge.
– Bluetooth keyboard charges using standard Apple power cables.
– Auto sleep mode when idle for 10 minutes.
– Easy setup – automatically re-connects when turned on.

The KeyCase iPad Folio with Integrated Bluetooth Keyboard is available (currently sold out, “stock due shortly”) via UK retailer GearZap (£59.95, US$92.52) here.

MacDailyNews Take: The first of many, but this is “Boot Camp for iPad.” In other words, a product for people who don’t really get it, yet, but will – as soon as they actually use their Apple product and quickly ditch the crutch they so surely believed they needed.

    to scroll up through larger amounts of text, simply hold down your finger over a word until you get the magnifier, then drag up (this moving the insertion point forces the text to scroll up or down once your finger and the magnified portion scroll past the top or bottom of the field); this should work anywhere there is selectable text within any app / part of iOS

  2. Obviously designed by folks that didn’t recognize a touch screen when they saw one. The bezel makes it nearly impossible to interact with any object near the edges of the screen.
