Why this is the coolest case around
No other iPad case that I have tested thus far has been as reliable (zippy Bluetooth connection for the keyboard), sturdy (again, a bit heavy, but solidly constructed), and eye-catching (plenty of comments about the case). In fact, when using the case in landscape mode, I am often asked what touch screen laptop I am currently testing. I have kept the ClamCase on for over a month now, and I am that much closer to being able to use the iPad as my sole computer and not have to lug around a full sized laptop. That being said, there are times when I want to use the iPad just as a Tablet without the case entirely, and I'm been pleased with how easy it is to release the device from the case. The case has easily survived on a handful of charges over these past few months, and I've even been able to squeeze in the new iPad despite the case being sold originally for the iPad 2. ClamCase has released an updated case for the new iPad, but rest assured that if you happen to pick up the iPad 2 version, the case will be a good fit.
As mentioned above, my only major complaint is that the case adds a considerable amount of heft to the iPad. Compared to a laptop though, you'll still be clocking in at under three pounds with the iPad and a full QWERTY keyboard case. For future iterations, I'd be interested in seeing improvement in the keys (chiclet keys or some tapered edges would be welcomed), as well as backlit keys (SealShield's case gets the feaure nod here). I would also be interested in a magnetic closure or even a small latch to make it more secure when not in use.
