Dexim: New case is not for iPad 2, despite reports

A new slim-line iPad keyboard and case combination product shown last night is not for the second-generation iPad, a representative for Dexim told iLounge today, contradicting widely circulated reports filed last night. “They just posted it to create buzz,” said Dexim’s Sam Habbar about the first-generation iPad case, saying that he has been unable to get media outlets to retract the claims, which stated that the unusually thin accessory set was for the rumored smaller version of the iPad.

The keyboard portion of the case, shown here, is claimed to be the thinnest Bluetooth keyboard available, packing wireless and battery hardware inside a leather-like shell that can be held alongside an iPad. It’s amongst many new accessories Dexim will be showing starting at the 2011 CES tomorrow.

So some guy at a trade show, hawking a pleather iPad case from a company few (if anyone) has ever heard of, now claims the biggest gadget site we’ve been reading for years is lying for page clicks?

This guy vs. Engadget? I’ll side with Josh, Nilay, Paul & Co., thank you very much.

I concur and just to add if this is for a 1st gen iPad can he please explain why it has additional and larger cutouts which do not feature on the 1st gen iPad?
