Ever since book-inspired iPad covers first appeared, there have been more and more available, including some directly from Moleskine. Personally, I like my iPad covers to do just two things: protect my iPad and double as a stand.
When I type using my iPad, I become a one-finger typer. I usually type with at least four to five fingers when I’m using a regular keyboard, so that’s saying something. Instead of being able to bang out sixty-five words a minute, I’m now limited to approximately just somewhere around the fifteen word mark.
Just like cases, people are always looking for the perfect stand, especially when it comes to the iPad 2. While some people were initially skeptical about Apple’s Smart Cover, anyone who has used it knows that it works pretty well, but it’s still a little cumbersome as a stand.
I’m not sure what the fascination is with covers that make new gadgets look like old ones, but here’s another one. Now you can make your iPad look like an original Macintosh computer from the mid 1980s.
A while back, I told you guys about a pretty cool iPad 2 case which was made out of good old duct tape. At the time, the case was only a one-off, but you can now get in on the duct tape action yourself.
Let’s be honest, transforming your iPad into a netbook with a somewhat bulky Bluetooth keyboard seems a bit like a paradox; the whole reason why the iPad 2 is so easy to carry around is that it’s extremely light and you can still use it for a variety of purposes.
…but it will make it easier to use the tablet while you’re reclining or lying down. The TyPillow isn’t the only cushioned iPad stand on the market, but it is the first one I’ve seen that omits the stand part and goes straight for the cushion.
Who wants to charge their tablet via cables or a docking connector? Not me and not you. Maxell Japan knows this and so they have announced the “Air Voltage”. The device combines a wireless charging pad with a case that will allow your iPad 2 to charge wirelessly.
I never really thought there was a huge demand for specialized docks for chefs and other folks that like to cook. My grandmother loved to cook and she didn’t need a recipe at all, she just knew what to do.
If you’ve currently got an iPad 2 and want to try something different with it, then check out this keyboard and case combo from M.I.C. It looks pretty decent, and seems to match the iPad 2 case pretty well.
The iPad 2 is quickly becoming the go-to tablet for a lot of people. While other manufacturers are struggling to come up with viable competing devices, Apple is laughing all the way to the bank. That being said, if you are trying to use your iPad 2 as a computer, you’ll most definitely need a keyboard of some sort.
There are a lot of cases floating around town for your much-coveted tablet from Apple. There are iPad 2 cases that look like visions of art like the Wasabi Wooden cases, while there are those that look more typical but have a bit more functionality like the PaletteCase.
There are many things to like about Apple’s iPad, but its rear-facing speaker isn’t one of them. I’m not talking about how they’re weak and tinny since most mobile devices have below average speakers anyway. It’s that the sound is directed away from the user’s ears.
ClamCase is one of many manufacturers that makes keyboard cases for the iPad and the iPad 2, but this summer they will be releasing a limited edition case that will make the tablet look like an Apple netbook.
