iPad with Pocket-sized keyboard?
September 20, 2010 Leave a comment
The keyboard features bluetooth connectivity, making it compatible with the latest Apple iOS mobile devices, among many others. Additionally, its keys are just 15% smaller than those of the standard desktop keyboard. This allows the device to maintain a comfortable typing experience, while significantly reducing space.
I had something almost like this for my palm pilot years ago with no bluetooth. I was wondering why someone hadn’t developed something like it for the iPad yet. I paid $80 for mine back then, I’m surprised to see the price for this is the same. Here is the first thing hit my mind when I saw the picutre: So, why not just use our existing netbook? Better specs for the money. And, the only answer I could come up with shortly after: This is Apple, meaning better interface, better design, and simplicity.
The Jorno’s unique design enables it to conveniently fold down to pocket size for easy storage and transfer. And its detachable cradle allows portable displays to be held securely in either portrait or landscape mode.
Given its unique features, the Jorno makes for a compelling alternative to products like Apple’s iPad Keyboard Dock. It will be available later this fall and is currently available at $79 on pre-sale until October 31, when it spikes to $99.
I think it’s kind of pricy, but again, this is an Apple accessory. It’s supposed to be pricy.
