19 December 2011, Singapore – As a writer, I sometimes find it tiring to type on my iPad 2. At times, after filing a few of my stories on my iPad 2, my wrists ache because the keyboard’s too small until I recently discovered bluetooth keyboards.
One such keyboard that I think should be a must for all writers or business people on the go is Logitech’s Keyboard Case for iPad 2 which was created in partnership with ZAGG. The keyboard case is functional yet looks sleek and stylo in its aircraft-grade aluminium casing. The Bluetooth paired keyboard has a high density padding, a recess behind the keyboard so that your iPad 2 can fit nicely horizontally or vertically. The only thing you need to do is to probably protect the back of your iPad 2 as this casing does not protect the back. Having used the review product for a few weeks during my work travels, I’ll probably be getting one myself. By the way, the keyboard and iPad fits nicely on the tray tables in economy class of most airlines.
Once the keyboard is paired with your iPad 2, you can lock and unlock your iPad 2 from the keyboard. It was built specifically for the iPad 2 with the keyboard functions working as a perpetual extension of the iPad 2′s on screen keyboard.
- High Density Padding – Inside base and corners are lined with high-density padding to help cushion and protect your iPad 2 from scratches and damages if accidentally dropped. The case design wraps around the iPad 2 so there’s no worry of scratching the surface or sides.
- Keyboard connection - The embedded, Logitech-designed wireless keyboard pairs quickly over Bluetooth and is charged via USB. No replacement of batteries are required.
- Built-In Stand - The built-in recess behind the keyboard allows the iPad 2 in portrait or landscape mode and ensures stability.
- Dimensions (LxWxH) : 24.5 x 19 x 1.2cm
- Weight 340 grammes
