    The rounded case back? How are you supposed to "type" on it when it's wobbling all over the table?

    I've been wondering that since the moment it was unveiled. What you do is don a black turtle neck and jeans, cross your legs, and stare at internet sites with a broken flash plug in icon...then you won't care if you can type on it or not. It helps if you "space out" like Peter, in Office Space.

    You're supposed to pay 70 bucks for the keyboard dock -- don't you know? :rolleyes:

    unfortunately, it does wobble. I think engadget's review stated that the typing experience was unpleasant when laying on a flat surface.

    Isn't the idea to hold it in your hand or to have it on your lap. The curve forces you to pick it up an interact with it more than a laptop.

    Using it at all while lying flat on the table seems like it would have less-than-ideal ergonomics, even just for looking at it.

    That's why you buy the fancy iPad case for it. ;)

    Exactly, I want that iPad Binder case which would certainly help with that. As well as putting it at an angle to be typed with.

    Watch the video, it shows it perfectly when he is typing on the coffee table. Besides, your not having to put lots of pressure like on a keyboard to push the buttons down and the "flat" part of it is a big enough area to where it most likely won't wobble.
