Wichita, Kan.-based QuickerTek on Monday introduced
iBook carry handles. When installed, the devices enable 12- and 14-inch iBooks to be carried without needing an external carrying case. Made of aluminum, the handles are fitted for either 12-inch or 14-inch iBooks, and double as a lift stand when the iBook is being used, which QuickerTek claims helps circulate air and improve cooling beneath the iBook, and provide users with a more optimal typing angle. The new handles are expected to be available in January 2005 for US$50.
