    Sell a $149 'keyboard cover', and you can essentially use your iPad like a laptop for typing long documents or spreadsheets.

    Hi Gladoscc,

    There are many products like you describe already on the market. I use the ZaggFolio, which is a case/cover with BT keyboard.

    I think I read somewhere that MS even pay license fee to Apple for this one ... Maybe only for the cover part of it

    Why do you think Apple needs to make this? As stated previously, there are plenty of options out there. Apple doesn't need to make every single option possible for all of its products.
