You know what’s strange? While the world is all crazy about tablets at the moment, don’t you think it is rather weird for a keyboard accessory to accompany whatever tablet that is in the market? Sure, if you would like to do plenty of typing and yet do not want to work those shoulder muscles unnecessarily, then why not carry around a netbook or a MacBook Air instead? The tablet keyboard accessory is somewhat an oxymoron, but it is reality for companies including RIM and their BlackBerry PlayBook. RIM has just confirmed previous leaks of the keyboard, where it will be connected to the PlayBook via Bluetooth as it arrives in the market later this summer.
It is touted to feature a similar footprint as the tablet, complete with a mouse trackpad that is located at where one would normally find trackpads on a laptop or netbook. Heck, this accessory will also double up as a dock so that you can just fold both of them together when done. Just how much are you willing to pay for this though?
