iPad keyboard case

folio03

I enjoy my iPad mini, but I worry about dropping it or otherwise damaging the unit when I travel.  Also, it serves most of my needs, but there are still occasions where I need to set up a laptop to write a review or extended emails.  Now, with the rugged folio from Zagg, I have converted [...]

I've reviewed a lot of keyboard cases for iPads and iPad minis in my day, but I'm always game to try another.  I find that some are pretty uncomfortable to type on and some do very well for an undersized keyboard.  Then there's the Belkin Qode Thin Type Keyboard Case for iPad Air, which is [...]

Just a few months ago, I got the chance to review the Belkin Ultimate Keyboard case for my old iPad. Now that I have the new iPad Air, my favorite keyboard case is no longer compatible. There is good news though, as Belkin has released a newer version of their Ultimate Keyboard Case to fit [...]

In the past few months, I have been fortunate enough to be able to test out three different Bluetooth keyboards for my iPad. The first one was a snap on/off keyboard cover for the iPad, the second was a folding keyboard, and the this most recent one is the Ultimate Keyboard Case for the iPad [...]

One thing iPad keyboard cases have in common is undersized keyboards and keys, and they often have non-standard arrangements of those keys.  The FlipKase Keyboard Folio for iPad (2nd-4th gen), a project currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, solves the undersized keyboard problem by letting you use Apple's full-sized Bluetooth keyboard.  The KeyKase reminds me of [...]

Bluetooth keyboard cases for iPads are everywhere.  It seems almost everybody sells one, and they're all pretty much the same except for how the exterior of the case looks.  The Cooper Kai Skel case for iPad is a bit different from the rest.  It has a polycarbonate case with a brushed aluminum look instead of [...]

I've reviewed a lot of Bluetooth keyboard cases for iPads, and most of them have the keyboard permanently attached inside the case.  You're stuck with carrying the extra weight of the keyboard, even when you know you won't be using it, and you're also stuck with always using the keyboard and the iPad within inches [...]

I've looked at a lot of Bluetooth keyboards and keyboard cases for the three versions of the iPad I've owned.  Usually I find the on-screen keyboard is okay for a quick email, but I can't type well enough with it to enter anything longer than that.  I don't often need to enter large amounts of [...]

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover

I hate hiding my slim and sleek gadgets in big bulky covers, and while I don't (and probably never will :)) own an iPad, the new Ultrathin Keyboard Cover which was announced today by Logitech looks the goods. The cover has an ultrathin alumium screen aligned with iPad's built in frame magnets and makes use of the iPad's [...]

I've tried a lot of Bluetooth keyboard cases for the iPad, and they all suffer from the same complaint.  Regardless of any other features they may offer, all keyboard cases have undersized keyboards.  If you're a true touch-typist, like I am, you'll find it very hard to type on these small keyboards because your finger [...]

The one thing I dislike about using my iPad is the on-screen keyboard, and it seems many people agree with me - evidenced by the sheer number of Bluetooth keyboards and keyboard cases on the iPad accessories market.  Typing a quick email on an iPad is fine, but typing anything longer is slow and error-filled.  [...]
