Apple's iPad Keyboard Dock Reviewed

 

A week ago we did our best to demystify Apple's latest creation: the iPad. What we found was that it provided a wonderful touchscreen experience, but was very limited in ability. Particularly from the productivity standpoint. You could type on its...

The iPad Keyboard Dock is good at one thing: turning your iPad into a desktop writing station. Think typewriter but with a different sort of multitouch. If the iPad is the perfect computing device for you, the keyboard dock is going to make it that...

Apple iPad Keyboard Dock

 

If you want an iPad, but you're not ready to commit to full-time, on-screen typing, Apple's iPad Keyboard Dock is a solid solution.

Slick design. Provides a physical keyboard for the iPad. Doubles as a stand for photo or video viewing. Charges iPad when docked

No way to dock the iPad horizontally. Can't adjust the amount of space between your eyes and the iPad's screen, like you can with a desktop computer keyboard

Apple iPad Keyboard Dock Review: This Generation's Typewriter

 

If you own an iPad, one big question is how do you use it? For mostly email checking and web browsing? Perhaps light typing and work? Or moderate to heavy tasks such as picture editing, office tools and more? Thanks to over 10,000 apps available solely...

Apple iPad Keyboard Dock review

 

Apple's iPad, as we all know, comes without a keyboard but what if you want to actually do some typing, what then?

Dedicated shortcut keys, stand for iPad to sit in

Big and overly heavy, not much use for anything else, no landscape option for iPad

While the iPad Keyboard Dock makes typing on the iPad considerably easier we have to say it's not something we would recommend adding to your shopping list

Apple iPad Keyboard Dock review

 

The Apple iPad Keyboard accessory transforms the iPad from a touchscreen flat panel display to a keyboard-powered computer. But is that really what you want? And even if it is, is this the way to do it? We get our hands on the iPad Keyboard Dock.

We really wanted to like the Apple iPad Keyboard Dock, and it was top of our list of accessories to obtain. It surprised us when it didn't work out. While the quality is undeniably high (essentially it's a Apple Wireless Keyboard) we found it wobbled...

Full size keyboard, makes typing out documents on the iPad much easier, custom keys to control iPad

Slight wobble when you type due to lack of supporting crossbar, makes the iPad feel more like a MacBook (but not as capable)

1st Rate but some flaws

 

Overall this is first class. However there are some things to know before you buy. The main thing is it is unlikely to charge through the PC/Laptop USB connection. Having done Google searches it seems to be a very common problem i.e. iPads not charging...
