We’ve seen keyboard docks and keyboard cases in the past that have attempted to transform the iPad and Android tablets into MacBook Air-like devices. If you’re the market for such a case, the folks at ClamCase have decided to take that notion and turn it on its head with the introduction of the ClamBook. Claiming to “change the way you view smartphones”, the ClamBook basically hooks up to your smartphone or tablet which will then display its contents on a wide-screen display, which is accompanied by a full-sized QWERTY keyboard and even a multitouch trackpad!

Some of the features of the ClamBook includes dedicated Android keys for instant access to media controls and apps, a 16:9 widescreen backlit display, 3D cinema sound and a multitouch trackpad capable of performing gestures on. Essentially one could think of the ClamBook as a shell with your smartphone/tablet powering it. ClamCase has announced that the ClamBook will be available this coming holiday season although they have neglected to inform us just how much it will cost.

However given its features which is definitely more impressive compared to your run-of-the-mill keyboard case/dock, we don’t expect the ClamBook to come cheap. Additional details can be found on its website along with a sign-up feature that will notify you when it is available.
