iPadDock Turns Your iPad into a Laptop

iPadDock

The iPad was designed to become the mother of all tablet PCs, but I bet not even Steve Jobs himself imagined it could make the laptop absolete.

But not by its own, mind you, but with the help of a device called the iPadDock. This innovative accessory is designed to turn your iPad into a touchscreen laptop. All you need is an Apple iPad, of course, and a Bluetooth keyboard. You can use iPadDock at school, as a business tool or simly as a hard-case to protect your iPad.

There are those that might say such a device is absolutely pointless, with the iPad beeing so responsive and all, but just like with touchsreen mobile phones, you sometimes feel the need for a hard keyboard. The iPadDock oficial site says pricing and availability will be announced shortly.

See the iPadDock in action, after the break. (more…)
