Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

If you find yourself needing to do a lot of typing, there are a couple of different hard covers available that include a hardware keyboard. The case pops off the screen, slides underneath the screen and turns it into a "laptop" formfactor.

All that's missing is to include an extra battery in the keyboard part, so that it charges the iPad while connected. ;)

thanks, i did consider one of the hard cases with the built in keyboard but so far the virtual keyboard is doing the job. Although i have been hankering for an iPad case with built in notepad and stationary holder, a complete mobile office ;)
