Video: Apple iPad with Neo as keyboard

A short demo of using the Alphasmart Neo as keyboard for the iPad

I had set the text very large (36 point) so it would be seen on the video. In normal size, a *lot* of text will fit on the screen, of course. Another reason the Neo is good for this is that it supremely rugged, and despite being a full-sized keyboard is compact and light, perfect for travelling. Together these two machines make a compact and yet very flexible and powerful set for when you’re out.
(Note: should be said that at least for now, the iPad’s software (especially the lack of real file handling) does not make it a real laptop-replacement. But I think it could be one day.)
