The consumer tech industry will probably continue its very long legacy of constant “borrowing” this week as a former Apple employee, Jamie Ryan has mentioned that the company is looking into making a keyboard cover for the iPad. Taking cues from the Touch Cover for the Microsoft Surface, the keyboard cover would be designed to enable the standard iPad to double as a business and professional friendly platform.
While it looks like Apple might be considering a new role for the top-selling tablet, Ryan emphasized caution before buying into this rumor completely. "Apple regularly mocks up all sorts of accessories and products and ditches them. 1000 no's for every yes etc."
