    Wow, the current version is 1.5 lbs which is I insane. Both the Logitech and Belkin keyboard cases are much, much lighter.

    That'd be heavier than an 11" MacBook Air :D

    The new case they are coming out with for the iPad Air looks awesome. Supposed to be much lighter and thinner as well.

    It looks awesome if it ever comes out. I signed up for the notification list last year for the mini on their website and still haven't gotten an email notification of its release.

    The model for iPad air shouldn't have much of a difference than the current one, except for the clamshell that holds the iPad. So it shouldn't be too far away.

    FYI, My ClamCase Pro for the rMini just came in, so the Air should be close behind. It's kind of cool!

    I'll post some photos in a new thread today. It is a pretty slick case!
    By the way, I did not get a shipping notice--it just showed up. . . .

    This company is annoying

    No facebook or twitter posts and no explanations.

    The website now says "coming in March 2014"

    After waiting so long I am seriously considering another keyboard case.

    Got an email from a customer rep says it should be able to pre-order in April and will ship in late April.

    Uggh... basically May.

    Meanwhile I'm still using my Brookstone keyboard case that's for the previous gen, and while the iPad Air is floating around in the case a bit, I'm not sure it's worth $150 to fix.

    Yeah, and potentially even later. No question, the ClamCase Pro is unique with it's hinge design and looks very MBP-like. But at $169, it's roughly one third the cost of an iPad Air! :eek:

    The cover does not offer any protection for the iPad, and build for the folio is too flimsy. I've come across the Crux Encore recently, seems like a good alternative, but it look too geeky and it won't ship until may. So still have to wait for ClamCase Pro...

    I wish Zagg would purchase ClamCase (or vice versa). I want the backlit keys in ClamCase package!

    And the companies merging would accomplish this how?

    Lighting keys isn't proprietary and if Clamcase wanted to do it, they could.

    One thing at a time. They can't even get their own product out the door, let alone adding features.
