The iPad will be here in just a couple days — you made sure to preorder it, right? As you might be aware, the device supports Bluetooth keyboards for typing out those long e-mails, but it needs something to stand on while doing so. Apple’s selling a keyboard that has a built-in support, but what if you already own a wireless Apple keyboard?

That’s where TwelveSouth’s BookArc comes in. The aluminum-constructed device acts as a sturdy stand for your iPad that allows you to use whatever Bluetooth keyboard you want. Its design allows easy access to the iPad’s home button. Sounds pretty darn useful to me.

The BookArc’s will cost $40, but availability is stil unknown at this time.

UPDATE: TwelveSouth just reached out. The BookArc will be shipping in 2-3 weeks.
