iPad gets a keyboard dock

Just like the iPhone in all its iterations as well as the family of iPods, it is fitting that the iPad gets a dock of its own – although you can tell that such a dock would definitely be relatively much larger in size. This $69 keyboard dock boasts a full-size mechanical keyboard that slides in the iPad in portrait mode, where it comes with a carrying case similar to that of the Amazon Kindle while featuring a stand. Guess that more or less answers our question on who would use the iPad as a work device with plenty of typing to be done. No word on mouse support, as that might be contrary to the way the entire interface was designed. Expect to see future iterations with built-in speakers, subwoofers and perhaps a webcam.
