Scosche launches waterproof, flexible keyboard
SwitchEasy has launched a new iPad 2 case, the CoverBuddy, for use with Apple's Smart Cover. The CoverBuddy offers protection for the iPad's rear casing, which the Smart Cover lacks. It is made of shock-proof polycarbonate and comes with rubber-coated colors or a clear finish with a UV-coating. It provides access to all ports in use, including the rear speaker grill. It ships in ultraclear, black, grey, blue and pink and costs $25.
Also new for the iPad 2, as well as the first iPad and other Bluetooth tablets, is the freeKEY waterproof wireless keyboard from Scosche. The new keyboard is made of silicone, allowing it complete water-resistance, and can be rolled up for storage. It supports Bluetooth 2.0 with a 30-foot range and works with iOS, Mac, Windows and Android. After an initial pairing it re-pairs automatically with a device when powered on. It ships with a Mini-USB cable for charging and costs $60.
