Meet the Brydge. It's the one and only true keyboard offering that's designed to the Apple-infringement max with an all-aluminum body and a black chiclet style Bluetooth keyboard that transforms your iPad 2 and iPad 3rd generation into a portable MacBook Pad that's as slim as a MacBook Air. There's no doubt that more and more people want to enjoy the full experience of a portable laptop using their iPad. We covered a few different Bluetooth keyboard case solutions for the iPad that have come close to mimicking the form factor of a full fledge iPad keyboard laptop package including the plastic unibody MacBook-like ClamCase and the thin MacBook Air-like Aluminum Keyboard Buddy.
The Brydge features a full QWERTY keyboard layout with dedicated iPad hotkeys, optional built-in stereo speakers, a rechargeable battery, reinforced click-in hinge that uses magnets and friction to secure the iPad to the keyboard body and is capable of tilting in 180 degrees. The guys behind the Brydge wanted to create the highest quality keyboard case possible, and that means matching the quality standards of Apple's aluminum gadgets. The Brydge is currently available for pre-order starting at a hefty price tag of $170. And if you'd like the Brydge with stereo speakers built in, you're going to fork out $210. We think the Brydge is going to be a great success. Catch the video after the jump!
Thanks for the tip, Sam!
