First Look: ClamCase Pro for iPad Air and iPad Mini have a lot to offer

1:11 /

They bend and twist, they're sturdy, and the keyboards feel good, too: the ClamCase Pro for iPad Mini and iPad Air are multi-purpose accessories to turn your iPad into an almost-laptop.

[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Scott Stein. And these aren't laptops I have in front of me, these are iPads in keyboard cases. The ClamCase Pro for the iPad Mini and Retina and the iPad Air. This one's 129, this one's 169. And if you're a back to school person, you're gonna be using a keyboard with your iPad,. These are pretty good but expensive options. This one, both of them, have a polycarbonate backing, they have aluminum on the inside, and nice keyboards, plus they automatically turn off when you bend them back and use them in tablet mode. So you won't be accidentally typing, kind of like the Lenovo Yoga or those Windows 8 hybrids. You can bend them back like this. Or in any sort of shape you want. Now, which one would you want? This one has a really nice typing area for iPad Air, but it is more expensive, and there are other keyboard options available. On the Mini, I haven't seen a lot of great keyboards. This one is probably the best because the layout's a little bit better, but you're gonna have to be pretty crammed in when you're typing. I like the novelty on the Mini, but this one is really the laptop alternative. There are other things out there. I'm Scott Stein, and that's the ClamCase Pro for the iPad mini and the iPad Air.
