    KeyCase iPad Folio packs a Bluetooth keyboard, scores FCC approval -- Engadget




    It's not the laptop-style ClamCase iPad case that we saw renders of way back in May, but this so-called KeyCase iPad Folio does manage to do a similar trick, and it's thankfully very much real -- it's just landed FCC approval and is already listed at one online retailer (though it's out of stock). The big selling point here, of course, is a Bluetooth keyboard that fits in the case and props up your iPad while in use, which can also be removed whenever you're looking to lighten the load a little. Unfortunately, there's still no official word on a widespread release for the case, but UK retailer GearZap has it listed at 60, or just over $90.

    Would hope to see something like that for any webOS tablet that hits the market.

    It's for dinosaurs. The mammals have already figured out how to live without their keyboards.

    What Palm innovation are we talking about? Do you mean a capacitive touchscreen device that someone would actually want to buy, a bluetooth keyboard, an iPad case that can hold the iPad and a bluetooth keyboard, what?

    As for Apple getting the credit, don't you think they deserve the credit for the iPad, and the ecosystem that encourages and welcomes creative people to make interesting things? Could it be that Apple's "closed" system still allows people to have more options than any other mobile computing system on the planet? Of course not. That's all just crazy talk, right? After all, Apple stole iTunes from Palm and... Oh, wait a minute.

    yeah, those dinosaurs who prefer touch typing on real keyboards instead of hunt-n-pecking at a virtual one on the screen.

    HP would have to force palm to use a standard BT stack before that can happen. Sadly, BT on WebOS is still severely crippled. No BT input devices work right now.
