Through the Japanese blog comes this curious Macotakara cover that perfectly reproduces the keyboard and the carcass of a MacBook Air. Thus, we can fit our iPad 2 or even the new iPhone in the appropriate place in order to have a device that is externally very much like an ultralight laptop.
This keyboard includes an integrated lithium battery that will extend the life of your iPhone , being able to charge you or not using it. It also includes a USB port, one mini USB and a Bluetooth keyboard.
The result is quite similar to some ideas of manufacturers with Android, reaching a hybrid between tablet and netbook. The Asus Prime Transformer is the most representative of them.
The set is sold through Rakuten Japanese manufacturer, for about 6000 yen, which amounts to about 55 euros. Is supposed to arrive in the coming months the U.S. through Buy.com website, which is responsible for importing products from this manufacturer Nippon. Sooner or later, if it sells well in Europe should see even asking for it via the web.
I must say that is designed specifically for the dimensions of the iPad 2 , but given the tiny difference in thickness to the third generation iPhone, we're pretty sure that also fit perfectly. For holders of the original iPhone, we fear that may not fit your tablet in this case, keyboard, because it is too thick. In any case, there are other excellent covers and separate keyboards that play well together.
Do you like it? Do you think the tablets should approach the world of netbooks, or is an area that should not try to attack? Would you buy if you see it in a store at a good price?
