    Hey all

    I'm in the market for a HD tablet but want one with a keyboard (for writing those long emails, etc.). And I want a keyboard that will clip or hold on to the tablet (so I can use it like a normal laptop). The only choice I've seen is the Asus TF700 with keyboard dock. Are there any other keyboards that are designed to hold on to the tablets?

    Thanks!
    Alan

    Thanks. I saw that one but it looks like it just rests on the keyboard. So, if I have it setup on my lap and I make a few movements, I am worried that it will fall out.
    Have you used that one before?

    It doesn't just "rest" on the keyboard. The keyboard actually has a sunken slot for the tablet, with a dock connection. It sort of slots in. But not too tight. It doesn't connect to the tablet via bluetooth or whatever, there is actually a connector there that plugs into the tablet port. I've used one but for a 7inch tab. Its basically the same except for the cradle around the port to hold the 7incher is smaller.

    Here's a video
