Re: iPad keyboard - looks good value for the money...

Can I use it, even if I don't have an iPad, as it seems a cheap alternative?

Seems that the differentiating factor is the fact that this one has a wraparound folder that encloses both the 'pad and the keyboard...?

This was the sense of my purchase - something that my boss could bring to meetings etc.

check out this link - I haven't checked where to get in CH but you can order from the US. Loops pretty good and seems to get great reviews.
