I don't fancy the idea of the smart cover. Let's consider, you are in a coffee shop and want to type on-screen on your iPad on their desk. You roll up the sleeve put it on the dirty table dirty with crumbs and coffee smudge (ouch), you do your typing, roll off the sleeve onto the screen and go on your way. NO! This whole thing is very un-Appple-like for me. What other alternatives are available, products you can recommend, if in general I like the idea of touch-typing on the screen on an elevated platform just not Apple's up-Apple-like offer?
