The iPad's a joy for reading, but you're screwed for writing anything longer than: "rad man, I'll see u ther. Excuse my brevity and any typos but touchscreens suck for typing, ok?" That's why I want a ClamCase. Star Wars-style.
The ClamCase concept is advertised as an "all-in-one keyboard, case and stand for the iPad," but what really matters is that it lets you turn your iPad into a decent-looking pretend laptop.
