For those wanting the ultimate typing experience on the iPad the ClamCase Pro certainly delivers. It is a full keyboard dock for the iPad that turns it into a MacBook Air clone. It is constructed out of aluminum like the MacBook Air and looks just like a laptop with the iPad inserted.
It's not cheap but operates much like a laptop with a standard laptop keyboard. According to the web site it will be available in March 2013.
Another laptop dock for the iPad is the Brydge which began as a Kickstarter project. The Brydge is now shipping and like the ClamCase in the previous slide it turns the iPad into a full laptop clone.
It has several model available, including two made of aluminum (with and without Bluetooth speakers) and a polycarbonate that is lighter and cheaper.
ZAGG Mini 9
Owners of the iPad mini needn't feel left out of the keyboard/case world as ZAGG has introduced a couple of them for the littlest iPad.
The Mini 9 case shown uses the same keyboard used in the cases for the larger iPad. The iPad mini snaps securely in the case which completely protects the tablet. The case has a built-in stand for use with the keyboard.
There is also a Mini 7 case from ZAGG that is only slightly bigger than the little iPad mini. Making it that size forces a compromise on the keyboard which is smaller than the Mini 9. The Mini 9 keyboard is comfortable for fast touch typing but the Mini 7 keyboard is likely too small for that purpose.
