Logitech has unveiled a new line of keyboard folio cases for the iPad and iPad mini. They’re called the Keyboard Folio and the Keyboard Folio mini and, as the bit of the name would imply, they offer protection for the front and back of the iPad and iPad mini.
And as you can see in the promo photo above, they come in a range of colors. They support the iPad’s automatic sleep/wake feature and offer a ‘traditional’ typing experience backed by the solid reputation of Logitech’s keyboard cases.
Here’s the promo video for the new Keyboard Folio cases:
The Keyboard Folio goes for $99.99 and the Keyboard mini for $89.99. Both are available for pre-order now, with the Keyboard Folio expected to ship in April, and the Keyboard mini in May. I ordered a dark blue Keyboard mini this morning.
What do you all think of these new iPad keyboard cases from Logitech?
This will make a lot of iPad keyboard case fans happy. ZAGG has announced that their ZAGGKeys PROfolio+ iPad keyboard cases now come in leather. ZAGG”s keyboard cases have already proved popular with iPad users, and deservedly so – they generally offer the best keyboards in my opinion.
I’ve used ZAGG keyboard cases with my iPad 2 and iPad 3 and liked them a lot. The only thing that prevented me from getting very frequent use out of them was that I disliked the hard, rigid cases. I actually detached the keyboard on my last one, and only use it outside the case these days. I’ve noticed that quite a few other people felt the same about the ZAGG iPad keyboard cases – love the keyboard, don’t love the case.
These new leather models look like they may well change that sentiment very quickly.
Here are some of the notable features for the new ZAGGKeys PROfolio+ keyboard cases for the iPad 2/3/4:
- Backlit keys in 7 colors (PROfolio+ only)
- Full coverage protection (front & back)
- Secure magnetic closure
- Genuine leather or durable polyurethane
They go for $159 and come in a range of 3 clors – brown, red, and mocha.

Wow. I only just ordered the ZAGGKeys Mini 9 three days ago, and it’s already here.
This is ZAGG’s new keyboard case for the iPad mini. I chose the 9 model because it has the standard sized ZAGG keyboard – and I ‘m a big fan of their iPad keyboards.
I haven’t even got the ZAGGKeys Mini out of its packaging yet, but I am very much looking forward to giving it a try very soon.
ZAGG, makers of some of the very best keyboards and keyboard cases for iPad, are having a 50% off sale today. They’ve got a number of their popular iPad keyboard cases available at half price for ‘a limited time’.
Included in the sale are their ZAGGKeys Mini 7 and Mini 9 keyboard cases for the iPad mini. I’ve been debating about whether to try a keyboard case for the iPad mini – and seeing this one at just $45 today was too good to resist. I just order the Mini 9 model.
If you’re a fan of ZAGG’s iPad keyboards, or you’re just on the lookout for a good one for your iPad, today is a great day to check out this ZAGG sale.
If you manage to pick one up, let us know in the comments.
The Brydge iPad Keyboard is one of many iPad related Kickstarter projects I backed this year. As some of you may have noted two recent ones were major disappointments: the Human Toolz Mobile Stand for iPad and the Facet iPad Stand. Brydge is touted as an effective and unique iPad keyboard that will give your iPad a MacBook Air like feel.
I’ve had my Brydge for a few weeks now and have recently had a chance to put it to some heavy use. I can tell you right off the bat that it is not a huge disappointment like the two products mentioned above. It hasn’t quite lived up to my, admittedly high, expectations for it though. Read on for some of the reasons why …
Brydge is a Bluetooth wireless keyboard for the iPad, made from ‘aerospace-grade aluminum that is machined and anodized to perfectly match the look and feel of an Apple iPad’. There’s also a black polycarbonate model available now. I got the standard aluminum model. Mine is a Brydge+ with the addition of a stereo speaker that’s placed at the top center of the keyboard.
It is compatible with the iPad 2 and iPad 3rd and 4th generations. My model came with friction clamps on its hinges that are made to fit the iPad 2, with additional friction clamps included to fit an iPad 3rd or 4th gen properly. I have the iPad 3 so I switched them out and it was a fairly easy process.
One of the Brydge’s big selling points is its hinges, described like so at the Brydge website:
Brydge’s patent-pending hinge holds the iPad secure and allows you to position your iPad at nearly any angle, even allowing you to close it up entirely for easy transportation. Once closed, both your iPad and Brydge go to sleep automatically.
