Dubbed the iDM5 Executive, this workstation's designed to make typing on one of those iPads or Tabs a whole lot easier by giving you access to a full set of physical QWERTY keys. Aside from the keyboard, the iDM5's also packing Bluetooth capabilities alongside a 3.5mm audio jack, so despite the "i" shining from the outfit's name, the add-on isn't exclusive to iOS devices.
