    Ever found yourself madly loving your new iPad 2 but missing the comfort of having a real live keyboard at your disposal and at the same time not wanting a big, heavy thing to carry around? Well long for such an object no more, because Hatch&Co introduces the SKINNY, a wonderful thin and light solution that not only protects the iPad 2 but also adds an external slim wireless keyboard. The keys are a mix between a real keyboard and a virtual iPad display and is only 0,07 inches thin.

    The case’s physical keyboard connects to the iPad using Bluetooth and has it fitted with a special raised surface over the keys adding textures and making it spill-proof, dust-proof and durable. A nice feature of SKINNY’s involves the magnets in the case that activate the iPad 2’s automatic locking feature. The raised surface of the keyboard provides a more responsive feedback solution if you need to write out larger text documents on the iPad, and can last until 68 hours of continuous use. When the battery runs out the keyboard can be charged via a USB connection to full power in just 2 hours. SKINNY comes in two colors: black and white, each with a stylish gradation-colored keyboard. The case has pre-cut holes for cameras, and you can use the two cameras without taking off the case. The case offers 2 different viewing angels, one for typing and another for using a tablet. Another excellent feature is that the iPad and the keyboard electronics will go to sleep mode when the case is close, therefore preserving power.

    Hi epb

    When you get it, it would be great to get a review. For me living in the EU, I would like to know if accented characters e.g é û ç for example can be input. Also if there is a DEL and a Backspace key.

    Thanks

    There is what appears to be the same item for sale on Ebay for $39.95 + free shipping. I just ordered one. For $40 bucks, even if it is crap I can have some fun with it and maybe type a little better. I use a Stylus because I just hate a creasy glass.

    If this will set up nice on my lap while watching TV in bed, this could be sweet. Will let you all know.

    Would you beleive greasy...... not creasy. See what I mean about the stylus? Could be operator error, but I doubt it.

    Looks just like the one I ordered, so a good deal. I just haven't had much luck with eBay lately for computer stuff so I'll stick with my Amazon order...
