DOCKr Is The Most Complete iPad-to-Laptop Converter Yet

We’ve seen a lot of iPad-enhancing accessories over the last couple of years. Speaker cases like the Belkin Thunderstorm, bring-your-own-keyboard cases like the Incase Origami, and even iPad battery cases. But here’s a new one: DOCKr, an accessory that brings all these advantages together in one Skittle-colored package.

inNuevo, the outfit behind DOCKr, says the accessory adds a whopping six upgrades to the iPad: a clamshell case with a custom-designed enclosure (which fits Apple’s Wireless Keyboard, or inNuevo’s own keyboard) speakers and an extra battery that adds about seven hours of use. That’s three; they’re counting a flexible viewing angle, the keyboard slot itself and the ability to customize the look of your iPad through different color selections as the other three — kind of iffy.

But even if the DOCKr doesn’t provide six full features, it’s still a hefty upgrade. Additionally, the case has USB and micro-USB ports to charge your peripherals using the DOCKr’s battery. It’s also Bluetooth-enabled — though what this might be used for isn’t quite clear.

inNuevo will also sell you their keyboard, normally $50, at a discount if you buy it with the DOCKr — though how much of a discount hasn’t been revealed yet.

Actually, not much of anything else, like pricing and availability, has been revealed; the DOCKr hasn’t even been introduced yet. A  launch party is set for April 2, at which point more details will emerge and the device’s Kickstarter page will go live.

    It might be the most complete but it just may well be the most ungainly. Did Fisher-Price design this?
