Kickstarter iPad keyboard "The Brydge"

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My first tablet was the Asus Transformer. As a product is sucked horribly, but the keyboard dock integration was done very well.

 

iPad has crappy clamshells and some other blah solutions, but from the looks of it, The Brydge seems to have nailed it.

 

Sorta pricey, but the hinge, locking system, and stereo audio are all winners. I was considering the Logitech Ultrathin, but this looks like it might be the better solution.

Ugghghghghhhhhgghhh… Makes me shudder. Who touches their possessions with paint-covered hands?! You have to take care of your stuff, man.

It looks really nice but doubling the weight of the iPad is not that great. While they might not be as nice quality, I'd buy something like the following sooner:

The ones merged with the leather cases are a bit clumsy. I like the hinge idea of the Brydge but I see the keyboard being more of an occasional use.

If that is what you wanted you should have just bought an air.

I can see why someone would be interested in this. When I had to go and visit my customers and take care of consignment orders an iPad would have been nice. Take the order using the iPad then go back to the car and hook up the keyboard to add notes and catch up on emails and what not. Would have been darn nice to have.
