The iPad and it’s successor the iPad 2 are marvelous devices but even as great as the touch interface is you do find yourself wanting a real keyboard from time to time. Of course, there are a lot of keyboard options out there for the iPad but none look as wonderful and as mac-ish as the new aluminum keyboard buddy case from the MIC store. This case and keyboard combo is elegant and effectively turns your iPad 2 into a MacBook Air for only $50.
The case is made out of aircraft-grade aluminum and features a keyboard that looks very similar to MacBook keyboards. It’s a wireless bluetooth keyboard, of course, and it has a rechargeable lithium polymer battery that will “last for several weeks of normal use” on a single charge.
It’s available from the MIC Store here.
