As tablets, led by the success of the iPad, have exploded in popularity over the past few years, several companies have offered accessories to give tablets functionality that some feel are missing. The ClamCase Pro is one such case which attempts to give an iPad 2/3/4 not only keyboard functionality but also the appearance of a small MacBook Pro laptop. Made of a matte-finish aluminum exterior and polycarbonate interior casing with black plastic keys, it mimics the recognizable MacBook Pro look and feel and provides the iPad a layer of protection. It features Bluetooth connectivity between the iPad and long-life lithium-ion rechargeable keyboard, auto wake/sleep, and a patent-pending “360-degree double-hinge” design that allows three separate positions modes including laptop keyboard, touchscreen stand, and tablet case. And unlike previous ClamCase versions, it has a roomy, spaced keyboard layout. It’s available for $169.00.
