ClamCase Debuts New Keyboard Case for iPad mini

Monday January 13, 2014 12:23 PM PST by Juli Clover
ClamCase, the company behind a range of keyboard cases designed for the iPad, today announced its the availability of its newest product, the ClamCase Pro iPad mini Keyboard Case.

Designed for the iPad mini and the iPad mini with Retina Display, the Bluetooth keyboard case aims to turn the iPad into a portable computer that resembles a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro, with an aluminum shell that attaches to a keyboard.

ClamCase Pro for the iPad mini weighs less than 1.5 pounds when equipped with an iPad and it includes a 360 degree hinge that allows the iPad to be used as both a laptop and tablet.

The case itself can also be used as a stand and the aluminum shell provides full protection for the iPad. The case includes a full QWERTY keyboard in a compact design, which automatically goes to sleep when shifted into tablet mode. It uses a rechargeable battery that can last up to a month without needing to recharge.

If only the iPad had a USB port.


You can get an adapter for that:

Everyone keeps saying this. iOS would need a decent file manager first. Prioritize your battles.

Anyways, I know some people that have the original clam case. It looks pretty slick, and I’m all about having the physical keyboard, but even in “tablet mode” this thing seems to defeat the purpose of having a tablet. To me, anyways.

If you only you had a trackpad/cursor.

A keyboard case with a trackpad in front of the Keyboard would mean that you could actually use this as a serious productivity tool without having to constantly touch the screen with your fingers. This would be awesome but unfortunately never going to happen since Apple thinks iOS should be controlled with and only with your fingers.

If this attachment makes sense to you, I'd wager you'd be better off with an actual laptop. I don't get trying to make the ipad something it's not.

I have a ZAGG keyboard for my iPad Air. I can't imagine using a tiny one on my iPad mini. But then again ladies with small hands may like it.
