Having difficulty in typing using your iPad or iPad 2? If you’re in trouble crafting your next big story on your iPad, just buy this Japanese product and convert iPad into laptop mimicing the MacBook Pro. Though wireless keyboards were still an option, I think that this iPad accessory is well fitted for your typing needs. Also wireless keyboards could be an extra bulk in your already crowded bag in addition to the rechargeable batteries and battery charger that you have to bring.
Introdcing the NoteBookCase from Rakuten. This product works like your traditional iPad case that has an Apple-style keyboard attached to it. By attaching your iPad into this clamshell-like case you can now utilized your iPad as a laptop. Apart from the keyboard that you can use, the NoteBookCase also features a Lithium-polymer battery that can charge your iPad. By using this product you no longer have to worry about bringing extra rechargeable batteries that you experienced with wireless keyboards.
Additionally the NoteBookCase was included with two USB ports. But this is not intended for attaching any USB devices. Those ports were included to serve as charging ports for other devices that turns your iPad case into a charging station that can be juiced up almost any device using either standard USB cable or mini-USB cable. Want to buy one? Visit the Rakuten site to purchase the NoteBookCase that is priced at $75.
For the new iPad/iPad 3/iPad HD and iPad 1 users, I’m not really sure if it will fit in because according to the site it was designed for the iPad 2. But if you are successful in fitting your new iPad or iPad 1 in the NoteBookCase, please share the experience by posting it as comments below.
