The ClamCase Transforms Your iPad Into A MacBook

One of the most common complaints about the iPad is that it's a sort of in-between device that can't really replace a notebook. Well, that might be so for now, but it looks like an add-on will be released next fall which will rectify the situation. It's called the ClamCase.

The ClamCase has been advertised as an all-in-one keyboard, case, as well as a stand for the iPad. They might say that it transforms your iPad into a notebook, but we think that it's probably more of a netbook than anything else.

The keyboard connects to your iPad via Bluetooth. It will be interesting to find out if there will be any additional tech installed under this keyboard, like say an extra hard drive. Now that would be really cool! Our guess would be no, but it's still an interesting addition to your iPad.

It will cost around $70 and currently the ClamCase website is getting a surge of traffic, so we couldn't find out much more. Needless to say that people will be buying this keyboard/case, even if there isn't any extra storage available. However, we do think that a solid state hard drive would be a perfect addition to the iPad. It's a bit ridiculous to turn a tablet into a netbook, but in essence, the ClamCase replaces three devices in a single and sleek package: a keyboard, a sleeve and a stand.
