The case they sent was a brilliant red, and it definitely attracted a lot of attention and questions. The outside is made of soft leather, and seems thick enough to protect an iPad, while the inside is also soft and scratch-resistant so the screen stays nice and clean.
Included in this case is a Bluetooth keyboard that boasts a battery life of 6-8 hours and can be used up to 30 feet from the device. The keys have a good solid feel and, once you adjust to the smaller-than-standard size, it is quite easy to use, definitely faster than using the on-screen keyboard. We tested it with an iPhone and an iPad, and pairing was simple and fast. One quibble was that there is an on/off switch on the back of the keyboard which you must remember to turn off when you are done using it – having often forgotten to turn it off, it would be out of battery the next morning. Charging is accomplished using a USB adapter. The iPad can be adjusted/tilted within the case and it stands up in landscape or portrait, allowing for easy viewing by a group of people.
The hospital we used it in doesn’t provide access to the EMR via iPad/Web broswer, but if your institution allows you to write notes and enter orders using an iPad, this would be a great rounding tool with a decent price point of $99 (includes keyboard, case, and a nice stylus).
