iGear Intros Customizable iPad Keyboard Case
The new iPad Flip Turn Case from iGear can be customized with an institution's logo in white or full color. Images are printed directly on the case using the company's G7-certified UV presses.
The polycarbonate case rotates for use in three modes: laptop, presentation and tablet. When a user opens the case, the iPad wakes up and goes into laptop mode, with the keyboard positioned at an angle for typing. When turned 180 degrees, the keyboard base becomes a stand, turning the iPad into a presentation device. Folding the case completely flat hides the keyboard for tablet mode. The tension closure system keeps the iPad closed when not in use, with an auto wake/sleep smart-cover design to conserve battery power.
Cutouts allow easy access to all iPad buttons, controls and functions. A storage cavity holds a built-in stylus. The case's integrated Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard offers a battery life of up to 60 hours, and shortcut keys control popular iPad functions. Backlighting, available at five brightness levels, shows through each letter (as opposed to just around each key) for enhanced readability in the dark.
