TwelveSouth previews BookArc for iPad


TwelveSouth has provided iLounge with an exclusive sneak peek at its upcoming BookArc stand for iPad. Drawing on the design of its current BookArc for Apple’s MacBooks, the BookArc for iPad will be made out of aluminum and feature a slit lined with a silicone pad to hold the iPad in place without scratching the screen, sides, or rear surface. In addition, the design incorporates a small indention to allow for access to the Home button while the iPad is in the stand. TwelveSouth’s BookArc for iPad is coming soon; exact release and pricing information has yet to be announced.

You can’t really use it with a wireless keyboard this way cos it’s only the special made for iPad dock by apple that allows bluetooth connectivity to the keyboard…

Actually, that’s incorrect. The Bluetooth functionality is built into the iPad itself, not the dock.

The iPad Keyboard Dock that Apple is selling connects via the Dock Connector rather than Bluetooth, but the iPad itself is compatible with other Bluetooth keyboards (including Apple’s own), and does not require any Dock to facilitate this.

Thanks for clarifying that Jesse, guess I still have a lot to learn about this device, don’t we all? Makes me feel like a noob now, oh well! :)

Will you get a giant soft keyboard on the screen even when paired to a bt one? Seriously hope not.

In the guided tours on Apple’s website a user is typing in Pages and using the keyboard dock, there is no on screen keyboard.  My guess is that this is just a mocked up model to show it off.  Not the actual device/keyboard in use.

Doesn’t the Bookark use interchangeable inserts to support different sized devices?  Is this a new iPad insert for use with the current Bookark?  Or a completely new Bookark built especially for the iPad?
