Apple’s iPad 2, despite all of its incredible features, is not exactly an ideal device for typing. Especially if you need to type longer documents and you don’t have all day to navigate the virtual keyboard. This is precisely why you’ll want to get your hands on the new Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad, a physical wireless Bluetooth keyboard that facilitates your typing on your iPad 2 and can be stored efficiently when not in use.
The new Logitech Fold-Up keyboard for iPad 2 comes in black color and is made of a light durable plastic. It can be separated into two sections for compact storage when not in use, and easily reassembles into a single keyboard unit when you’re ready to use it. When you’re finished using the keyboard, you simply tuck the keyboard under your iPad. Think of of this wireless keyboard as a handy combination of a portable keyboard and a storage case for your iPad 2.
Even handier, the keyboard acts like a stand for your iPad so that your iPad can be tilted as you are typing. It virtually transforms your iPad into a mini laptop. An internal rechargeable battery that also includes a USB module for recharging powers the Logitech Fold-Up keyboard. And connecting to your iPad 2 couldn’t be easier using the Bluetooth wireless interface provided by the keyboard. With the convenient Bluetooth feature you won’t need any wires or cables to connect the keyboard to you iPad 2.
And this is a quality keyboard as you would expect from Logitech. Comfortable and responsive to your touch, one user reported that she was able to type 91 words per minute using the Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad 2.
The Logitech Fold-Up Wireless Keyboard for your iPad 2 may be the ultimate accessory you’ve been looking for to finally complete your iPad 2 and make an already truly wonderful device absolutely perfect!
While digital pens that enable digitally recording text as you write are not necessarily a new innovation, these devices have become popular because this is such a natural form of data input. After all, many of us might not be that good at typing and keyboards, but most of us are quite comfortable writing with a pen. A new invention however is a digital pen that is compatible with the iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, most of the existing digital pens out there are not compatible with these devices. E Fun has just introduced the new Apen A4 Wireles Digital Pen which is specifically designed to be compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iOS devices.
In fact, the Apen A4 Wireless Digital Pen also improves on what previous digital pens have lacked. That’s the ability to digitize what you are writing without needing a computer as a digital translation medium. The Apen A4 digital pen’s receiver can transfer your recorded writing directly to your iOS device. This is done through the 30-pin cable that’s included with the pen. Also, the receiver can store up to 100 pages of data if you don’t want to digitize and transfer all at one time.

The pen operates on a battery that can last up to 8 hours. It also comes with a photo sketcher feature that allows you to make annotations on computer images, and other annotations such as an e-signature on the many Microsoft Office applications and on digital pictures. Other features include sharing of photos on social media sites and sharing handwritten documents through e-mail.
This Apen A4 Wireless Digital Pen is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5, Windows XP or any newer versions, and iOS 3.0 and above. Although it is a digital pen, it works just as well on normal paper. The price is around $130 and is easily available at all national retailers.
As a proud owner of Samsung Galaxy Tab, courtesy of a gift from someone dear to me, it almost never leaves my side even for a moment (yes, I’m probably just slightly addicted). I play games, make phone calls, read, write, Skype, surf the net, blog, and all the things most normal people do these days. Unfortunately, one thing it doesn’t do all that well is to stand on its own. To use it, you have to at least hold it in your hands or put it on a flat surface. Finally, the Ringo Mounting System by Vogel solves that problem for you.
Let me give you an example. You are in the kitchen, equipped with aprons and spatulas, and you need to check whether you did the recipe right. Now imagine yourself trying to scroll up and down but it’s rather tricky since you have only one free hand. Then you tell yourself how you wish there’s someone who can just hold it up for you and stand still. Oh wait, this is no longer a problem. All you need is the RingO mounting system. It helps you mount your iPad or in my case, a Samsung Galaxy Tab anywhere you’d like.
You can use the RingO mounting system to put your device on your bedside table (just like a picture frame would stand), your kitchen wall and there is even a mounting system by RingO for your car should you want to watch videos of cute cats at the backseat (you would never watch videos while driving, of course).
RingO mounting system is compatible with the Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tabs, and the cost of the starter kit (case and wall mount) is just $70.
Price: $70 and under
Can’t seem to find a place to put your iPad for easy of view purposes? Why not get the under cabinet iPad dock? The Under Cabinet iPad Dock can be mounted anywhere that has a cabinet. The dock secures the iPad above a counter top or on a desk for easy viewing. So for example if you hook it up on your kitchen cabinet, you are able to browse for recipes while cooking without making a complete mess on the counter top, listen to music or even watch some soap opera while you prepare that casserole.
The iPad dock secures the iPad firmly while the docks tilt and swivel arms are adjusted to a desired screen position. The dock has a two 3 watts built in speakers and audio can either come out from the iPad itself or the intergraded speakers. The speakers also work as an AM/FM clock radio and it comes with a remote for the clock radio. The remote requires a CR2025 battery in order for it to work. Under the radio clock is the foldable dock for storage so when you are not using it, you can flip your iPad and it clears up the area. The dock is compatible with the iPad and iPad 2.
The measurement for the under cabinet iPad dock is 4 ¼ inches in height, 12 ¾ inches in width and 11 ¾ in depth. When the iPad is connected it is 14 ½ inches in height. It weighs at 6 ¼ pounds and retail price is at around $129.95.
The iPad 2 is by far Apple’s best innovation. It’s thinner and lighter body, faster processing speed with the dual-core A5 chip, Facetime feature or the 10-hour battery may be the reason why you would like to purchase an iPad 2 for yourself. However, there is one iPad 2’s accessory that you must get your hands on – the Angry Birds iPad2 Case.
Angry Birds is a puzzle game which was first released for Apple’s iOS in December 2009. Today, this addictive game is playable in different operating systems including the Android. If you have the thought of personalizing your own iPad2, and you are a loyal fan of this addictive game, then you should purchase the Angry Birds iPad2 Case.
They come in three ultra-cool designs, the Pig King Vs Red Bird, Family and Red Bird design. Not only do they look fancy, but also they serve the primary function to protect your iPad2. These fancy design covers also allow you to use all the iPad2 ports. And they come in an ultra-slim design making your iPad2 look as though its skin is printed with Angry Birds!
Guess what? These beautifully-designed covers only cost only £36.99! It is definitely a worthwhile purchase, especially if you’re a hard-core fan of Angry Birds. The Angry Birds iPad2 Case can be ideally given out as birthday gifts or a Children Day’s present, or to encourage your kids for their good performance in any aspects of their studies.
