Incipio’s ClamCase keyboard cases transform your iPad into a MacBook

Following its acquisition of ClamCase last summer, Incipio has just unveiled a new range of keyboard cases designed especially for iPads at CES in Vegas. There are seven new ClamCase keyboard cases for the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad Mini 4. Crafted from aluminum, with a polycarbonate shell, each one features the patented 360-degree smart hinge with soft-touch finish, which allows users to transform their iPads into mini laptops or fold the keyboard back to find the perfect angle for viewing.

First up is the ClamCase Pro for the iPad Mini 4, which includes a full QWERTY keyboard, a rechargeable battery that lasts for months between charges, and real protection from dings and drops. It will be available in the next couple of months and will cost $130.

Coming in the summer, we have the ClamCase + for the iPad Pro ($170) and iPad Air 2 ($150) which offers a full QWERTY backlit keyboard with adjustable brightness. It supports the sleep/wake function, automatically turning on when you open the case and turning off when you close it. There’s a handy integrated slot for storing the Apple Pencil, and the case comes in gray, gold or silver.

Incipio also announced the ClamCase + Power for the iPad Air 2. It has the same 360-degree hinge and adjustable backlit QWERTY keyboard, but it also packs an extra 6,000mAh backup battery and a 2.1A USB port, so that you can use it to charge your iPhone, or another smartphone or tablet, while you’re on the go. It will cost $200 when it goes on sale this summer.

Finally, there’s the ClamCase Prompt for the iPad Air 2. It sports a small OLED display on the top of the case which pairs wirelessly with your smartphone. The idea is that notifications will come in and be silently displayed on the case, so you won’t have to check your phone during meetings. It also has the full QWERTY backlit keyboard with adjustable brightness, supports the automatic sleep/wake function, and sports that handy 360 degree hinge. It will be available for $200 this summer and comes in silver or white.
