Case that Transforms iPad into Small Notebook


A Japanese blog called Macotakara recently informed about a MacBook Pro clone that is in fact a case that turns an iPad into a mini notebook.

The case features a Lithium-polymer battery that allows the user to charge their iPad while using it. In addition, the device is equipped with a USB port, mini USB port and it makes use of Bluetooth connection for the keyboard.

So far the case can be acquired through Rakuten, a Japanese retailer, for 5,980 yen (about $75). In the near future it is possible that the case will be available through the company's United States-based

Although the case was developed specifically for the second generation iPad, it should work with iPad3, mainly because there's little difference in thickness.
