iLuv shows desktop-style iPad dock

Make your tablet look like an old PC

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

We've seen tablet cases that make a fondleslab operate as a laptop screen, but you'll soon be able to go for that desktop look too.

Accessory maker iLuv is working on the WorkStation series, a set of docks for Apple iPads and Samsung Galaxy Tabs that incorporate a speaker unit and a wired keyboard.

iLuv iMM737 WorkStation iPad 2 desktop dock

OK, so it lacks a hard drive, serial ports and a floppy disk, but you could be forgiven for thinking the tablet has morphed into an old-style PC, complete with tiny monitor.

This is the iMM737 WorkStation - iLuv will also offer the iMM517, which is the same thing but with a Bluetooth keyboard rather than a wireless one. The iMM737 will go on sale in November, the 517 sooner. UK prices are TBC. ®
