    I have a number of questions about the ClamCase that some of you may be able to answer and then maybe not:
    1. If there is an extra battery inside (and it appears there is if it can run for 90 hours!!!), how does it connect to the iPad?
    2. I assume that the keyboard can't do all the touch screen functions and there are still some functions that require the user to select icons on-screen, and if this is true does touching those icons upset the balance of the whole device (such that you have to support the back of the iPad when pressing the screen)?

    Thanks for any input on these questions.

    1.The battery is for the Bluetooth keyboard, not the iPad itself.

    One question for anyone who has one of these - is the keyboard recessed into the case? It looks like if you flip the case over and prop the ipad up that way, the keyboard ends up face down and possible in contact with whatever surface you put the case down on to. Would a rough surface scuff up or damage the keyboard?

    If they made a high gloss white or black version I would totally but it. I have the ZAGG mate which is cool and thinner. But this integrates 2 devices into one, which is how I like it.

    !!!!buyer beware!!!

    Folks, if you are considering buying a Clam Case you should read the discussions forum Clam Case on Facebook . Many people have ordered this product back in December. Most, if not all are still waiting for their product despite the fact that many have had their credit cards and debit cards charged. The "company" response to questions is always "we are starting to ship next week" and then nothing happens. Others have received emails that say their product has shipped but then when they ask for the tracking number that is not in their email they simply get another email back saying tracking numbers are in shipping emails. Folks are very upset because they really want this product but many are loosing heart with the company who doesn't seem to know how to communicate properly. BUYER BEWARE!!!

    I am someone that ordered two of these cases last week and don't expect to get mine shipped for at least a month. I would be pissed to be getting no answers from customer service on when (or if) their case will ship.

    This product passed FCC over a week ago so not shipping is straight bull if you ask me. This is either because of manufacturing issues or they found a serious hardware issue after receiving them.

    Also I checked out google realtime and it seems some people (when i say some I mean three) have received their case but some don't even power on.

    Off topic but this is the same thing that Ivy Skin are pulling with the battery for the iPad Smartcase. If you purchased the case with the battery pack you only got the case and the battery will ship at a later date. It's been months and their has been no update (still says pre-order on their website).

    This is one of the first questions I wanted to know as well

    The keyboard will be a little raised up as a result of rubber "feet" located at the corners of the (look right under the screen). There are also feet on the bottom of the case.

    Engadget posted a quick review of it on youtube.

    Got mine on Tuesday without any of the problems mentioned in previous posts. Works as advertised and I am very pleased.

    Ah but the question is, when did you place your order. How long did it take for them to ship it.
