I was on the lookout for a good gadget find during our trip to Singapore. I am going to Hong Kong in a couple of weeks but the shops there are Ginormous and for me it’s a place where you can buy the equipment after doing online research. In Singapore – I was really just doing my regular shop browsing.
The result of that browsing is this new iPad Case that I bought. It’s a leather case with a built in Bluetooth Keyboard. It’s a great gadget geek’s find. One of the reasons why I have not bought the iPad Keyboard dock is mobility. The keyboard dock seems to be too chunky to bring around. In this case – you don’t really have anything extra to bring for the keyboard comfort that a lot of iPad owners are looking for.
I bought the case for 170 Singapore Dollars. That’s a fair price. The case admittedly adds a little bit of weight to carry around for the iPad. But it’s still lighter than the netbooks. I am not sure which is heavier – this ipad + case or the new Macbook Air 11’’.
The keyboard is responsive – and according to the shop – it lasts ninety hours on a single charge.
