Has anyone used or seen this thing yet?

I saw it in the Best Buy ad this weekend.

Looks interesting and I *might* be willing to give it a shot, but aren't they a little late to the party with this thing?

Suppose the size/form factor of iPad 2 changes and no longer fits it...Seems to me this pretty quickly could become an expensive paperweight.

Otherwise, I'd like to see how it works. My local Best Buy has it in stock. :)

Here's the Setup Guide if it helps give anybody a clearer idea of what this product is like...

Then read the reviews on Best Buy.com or get up off your duff and find it in one of your local stores! That's what I'm planning on doing. :D

Unfortunately, there are not many good alternatives that are actually available.


The ClamCase and Crux360 are MIA.
The Kensington, Brookstone and Sena keyboard cases use the rubbery keyboards with a non-standard key layout (no right shift key)
ZAGG/mate comes in 2 pieces but has a standard, but smaller keyboard.


For those of us who do a lot of typing on the iPad, there's not a lot of good solutions to choose from.

That's definitely a deal-killer for me as well!
