Product Highlights

The black ClamCase for iPad 2nd, 3rd & 4th Generation from ClamCase lets you email and message, update and organize, or search and surf with the utmost ease. It includes a Bluetooth laptop-style keyboard that folds out when you need it, and flips out of the way when you don't.

When you do pull it out to get a little work (or play) done, you'll find that the keyboard's slim scissor-action chiclet keys give you the tactile feel of a laptop. Of course, we all like to streamline our workflow -- and the ClamCase can help. In addition to the full QWERTY layout, the keyboard has several special function keys for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Generation iPads that let you copy, paste, control music and more.

The movement of the ClamCase's hinge is precise and smooth across 360 degrees. As you approach tablet or keyboard position, the ClamCase snaps securely closed. Whether you're taking to the road or just headed to the living room couch, the ClamCase provides hardshell polycarbonate/ABS protection and shock absorbing anti-scratch pads will cushion the ride for your tablet. It protects all sides of the iPad and guards against dents and dings.

An added convenience is the instant wake capability, and the soft-touch surfaces of the case allow for exceptional handling. All in all, the ClamCase offers added efficiency and sleek protection for your iPad without making you compromise the ultra-portable nature of your tablet.

          I use my iPad 3 for note taking and with the ClamCase this makes doing the task of entering my notes more efficient and makes my iPad 3 a new mini laptop! It also puts the iPad 3 in a comfortable position wherever I use it, on the desk, the table and even in my lap, I'm one very happy ClamCase user! This is built tough and works great. It's also the best thing on the planet for protecting my iPad3! I might be the only person In Canada that has one because it's not sold in Canada. Thanks to B&H for having this wonderful item in stock when I visited NYC a couple of weeks ago! The surprise was that the friendly sales clerk didn't even know about the ClamCase until I mentioned that there is 3 in stock. He was sure they did not have it so he checked it on the computer and BINGO just like the listing on the B&H website stated, 3 in stock! The ClamCase made a scene at the counter because no one has ever seen one. Lucky me and a big thank you to B&H for the accurate inventory listing on B&H's website! ClamCase and B&H made my review for this FIVE stars!! Thank you , Michel

            I've had my Clam Case for a couple of weeks now and I love it. It so easy to use. Nice and strong and easy to link to iPad for first use. I use it to take minutes at meetings. If you download Pages from the App store you can type straight into your minutes template so They're done when you leave the meeting. It's a little heavier but not as heav as a laptop. Highly recommend the Clam Case. Would love to see it come out in orther colours.

            Keyboard working but it's too heavy

                  The main idea behind ClamCase is to have a keyboard for the iPad 2. This works very well (it's easy to pair the keyboard, good typing and nice feeling).

                  The product is heavy - you need to be aware of this. So if mobility and weight is your main concern then do not buy this product.

                    I use it mostly for typing emails.
                    The keyboard is amazing!! works well with most of the apple application
                    It would be nice, if they built in Bluetooth spreakers and a track pad but I'm not really complaining.

                    great product!

                      My company was deployed over 20 of these in the last few months. Bought 2 from B&H because the manufacturer ran out.

                      The iPad 2 snaps into the top of the shell, with the bluetooth keyboard on the bottom. (It does not protect the iPad screen!) Pairing the two together is a snap. The case has three modes: closed - the ipad screen is protected as the case looks like a closed laptop. Laptop mode - just like the main picture here. And tablet mode - the ipad lid can swivel all the way around so it's on the back side of the bluetooth keyboard. You only have to remember to turn off the keyboard first!

                      I gave it 4 stars because we're experiencing about a 10% failure rate with either loose USB ports (to charge it, the battery is internal and is non-replaceable) or "battery won't hold a charge".

                      But otherwise this a great way to turn your iPad 2 into a laptop/netbook (without a touchpad mind you!)

                        This is a sweet case! Like the keyboard and the protection. Postions available let you use it like a laptop or the I-Pad.

                        Only thing I think would be nice is when the unit is completely opened to use the I-Pad without using the Clamcase keyboard if a thin cover could be flipped or slid to cover the keys versus just being able to shut-off the keyboard

                        i really like the case. The keyboard has room for improvement. keys are very close to each other making it a little uncofortable to type. Also its not 100% funcional but I really like it in general
