Most keyboard cases for iPad 2 are hard-to-hold book-style cases or have the keyboard in a separate piece that snaps over the iPad 2. The new Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad 2 from Logitech fits over your iPad 2 like a silicone case would (top image), though it will add more thickness and weight than silicone covers. The keyboard case is even compatible with the Smart Cover. When you need it, fold out the keyboard hidden underneath the iPad 2. Unlike the book-style cases, this keyboard is full-sized. When the keyboard is in use, the iPad 2 will be supported at a comfortable viewing angle in the horizontal orientation. The keyboard is powered by a USB-rechargeable battery. It automatically wakes and connects via Bluetooth when opened; it turns itself off when folded. There are shortcut keys for frequently used functions, like copy, paste, undo, and more. The Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad 2 is $129.99 at Logitech.
