Are you stuck trying to decide whether to buy an iPad or just opt for a small sized netbook instead? Well, worry no more. The ClamCase iPad accessory is a protective case and keyboard that instantly warps your iPad into a netbook looking tablet.
In a case of (no pun intended) “why didn’t anyone else think of that – and sooner”; the ClamCase iPad accessory combines three very important iPad accessories into one and turns your iPad into a transgendered – post op – netbook. After buying an iPad, the first accessories you’ll probably fork over your hard earned cash for is a protective cover, an external keyboard, and some sort of iPad docking accessory – all of which are taken care of with the ClamCase iPad accessory.
Perfectly named, the ClamCase iPad protective case allows an iPad to be docked horizontally (unlike the iPad dock with keyboard accessory) and closed in clam-like fashion – providing a much needed hard iPad touchscreen protective case and wireless Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad. Although, the ClamCase iPad accessory makes your iPad look exactly like a netbook, there are still a few differences that’ll make your iPad less netbook-like. The ClamCase lacks a touch pad (duh), USB ports (double duh), and isn’t connected internally to an iPad so it’s likely that you’ll have to charge both the iPad and ClamCase with two different adapters.
Although the ClamCase lacks a few features of an actual netbook, all isn’t loss. The ClamCase accessory provides a perfect solution for typing on the go without using the iPad’s annoying inbuilt QWERTY keyboard, is a solid (literally) iPad dock that won’t topple your iPad on its face unlike the iPad Case accessory, and the hard casing of the iPad’s ClamCase accessory seems to be the best way to protect your iPad’s screen yet.
If your mouth is watering in anticipation of rushing to the store and nabbing this netbook transforming accessory for the Apple iPad; you’ll be forced to put a stop on your breaks. As of yet, the iPad ClamCase accessory is still in its render stage and pricing and release date are still unknown. Until the ClamCase becomes available for purchase, you can whet your iPad/netbook appetite by watching this video or visiting ClamCase.com.
