Apple Flubs iPad Keyboard Dock?

Tue, Apr 20, 2010

iPad, Mobile

According to MediaBistro, someone really wasn’t thinking correctly at Apple when they designed the iPad’s shiny new keyboard dock. The dock starts at $69 and mimics the styling of the current bluetooth keyboard Apple sells.  The keyboard dock adds some additional iPad specific keys and an audio-out jack for easy listening while using it. Despite these great features of the dock, the gripes are as follows:

  • Portability – The dock is one solid piece, nothing is bendable or foldable about it. This makes it not so portable if you wanted to throw it in a purse or compact backpack.
  • No A/C adapter included
  • An iPad in the official Apple case will not fit in the dock.

Sounds like some issues that could be resolved in a new revision but certainly shows some interesting oversights.
