Brydge Makes Your iPad Work Like A MacBook Air

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!

Logitech Intros Ultrathin Keyboard Cover For iPad 2 & iPad 3rd Gen

Looking for a keyboard case that's slim and attractive? Logitech has got you covered, literally! Logitech's latest keyboard offering is called the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, and only compatible with the iPad 2 and iPad 3rd Gen for a good enough reason. This is one of the more impressive keyboard offerings to come out of Logitech as well as other competing brands alike. The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover works like like a true Smart Cover in that it magnetically clings to the iPad and covers the front screen entirely when stored away for protection is ease of use while retaining the magnetic sleep/wake functionality. It's essentially an aluminum Smart Cover with a built-in, ultra-slim wireless Bluetooth keyboard that features a built-in stand for landscape or portrait viewing angles, function keys and a rechargeable battery that promises to last for 6 months on a single charge.

The ultra-sleek Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is made to look and fit the iPad for a seamless match with a contoured aluminum shell, a piano-black finish and matte chiclet style keyboard keys that should feel great to type on knowing Logitech keyboards are one of the best. Logitch's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is available to pre-order now for $99.99, and ships later this month. See it in action after the jump!
