CES: iPad case with built-in keyboard (podcast)

Larry Magid speaks with Robert Lutz of Accessory Workshop, who was showing an iPad case with a built-in wireless Bluetooth keyboard.

Accessory Workshop used CES to debut a new version of the tyPad, an innovative iPad case with a built-in rubberized keyboard that connects to the iPad via Bluetooth.

The $114.95 case, which is not much thicker than many other iPad cases, also serves as a stand, putting the iPad into an excellent position for typing. Although some touch typists may have a bit of trouble using the keyboard, which is smaller than a standard desktop or laptop keyboard, I found it easier to type on than the virtual keyboard on the iPad screen. 

For more on the first version of the product, see Josh Lowenohn's hands-on post.
