Apple iPad Keyboard Folio Round-up

By on November 28, 2012, 9:27 PM

Earlier this year I had a look at a couple of iPad keyboard cases from the likes of Logitech and Belkin as part of an iPad accessory survival guide. The nature of that article was more of a round-up covering multiple product categories rather than an in-depth review on each item.

As I mentioned during that article, we hardly scratched the surface in the keyboard folio category, which brings us to today where we’ll be looking at the two aforementioned offerings in greater detail in addition to another popular choice, the Zagg Folio for third and fourth generation iPads.

Modern tablets were designed primarily as media consumption devices. But more recently, units like the Asus Transformer and the just-released Microsoft Surface are challenging this idea with optional keyboards built for each slate. Microsoft in particular is keen on showing consumers that Surface can serve as a legitimate productivity machine, which is one of the key reasons we wanted to revisit the iPad keyboard category.

Read the complete review.

Sure, the Belkin design doesn't look as refined as the Zagg case, but its removable keyboard tray in effect gives the user two case styles for the price of one.

I've looked at several, but as of yet not bought one; just can't convince myself there is a need for one.

After using an iPad for over a year, and getting frustrated with the on screen keyboard, the surface is a breath of fresh air. It works so much better - I'm loving it

From my point of view, the Zagg is the way to go. I use my ipad so much more than I would if I didn't have it. Some of my family members have bought them after they have seen mine in action. Thumbs up.

The Zagg and Logitech keyboards look very nearly identical. Since Zagg sells the Folio case without the keyboard, would it be possible to use the Logitech keyboard with Zagg Folio case?
