I’ve been using a ZAGGfolio iPad 2 keyboard case for a few months now, and I like it a lot. So I was interested to see that ZAGG are now offering a range of colors for the ZAGGfolio.
You can now get the folio (the case) in a choice of 11 colors, including Dark Blue, Metallic Red, Smart Green, Smart Orange, and more. You can also choose a keyboard color – silver, black, or white.
If you choose to order Folio and Keyboard it will run you $99.99. If you want just the folio, it’s $29.99. I just ordered a blue one.
My favorite thing about the ZAGGfolio for iPad 2 is its excellent keyboard. It’s the nicest one I’ve seen yet for one of the case + keyboard combos. It has great spacing between the keys and is very comfortable to type on.
At $100 and with a range of colors to choose from, I’d say this is a good deal with a high quality iPad 2 keyboard case if you happen to be looking for one.

The ZAGGfolio is an iPad keyboard case. It’s quite a good one too, but when it was initially released there was a problem with the case’s clasp that keeps the iPad secured in it.
ZAGG were very pro-active in acknowledging and addressing the issue. They emailed everyone who had purchased a ZAGGfolio to let them know about the issue and to state that they had corrected it and would be issuing replacement cases.
My replacement case arrived yesterday, within the timeframe promised in ZAGG’s email on the subject.
Happily, the new case looks good and the clasp works like a charm. I know that my iSource colleague, James Rogers, who initially reported on the clasp issue, has also said that his replacement case is working well.
Great work by ZAGG on fixing this issue and issuing replacement cases – that’s some top-notch customer service.
I’ll be reviewing the ZAGGfolio and / or comparing it with the Clamcase keyboard case soon.
As we learned last month, the ZAGGfolio iPad keyboard case has an issue with the clasp on the case, and ZAGG was very pro-active in not just acknowledging the issue but emailing everyone who bought one and making clear that they would be replacing the cases.
It was a strong response and a very good approach to see from a leading accessories vendor.
This morning I received an email from ZAGG confirming that my replacement ZAGGfolio case shipped, and giving an expected delivery date of September 15-19. These dates are in line with the 4-6 weeks that ZAGG promised when they sent their email advising of the problem with the case.
Well done ZAGG – excellent customer service on this issue.
A few weeks back I did a post here mentioning the new ZAGGfolio iPad 2 case with integrated removable keyboard. The case + keyboard combo looked good to me and I ended up ordering one.
I’ve recently had my ZAGGfolio delivered – but I won’t be getting any use out of the case for a while, as ZAGG have announced that there is a defect in the design, as described by James Rogers in his updated review over at iSource.com:
This review has been updated as of July 29, 2011 to reflect a defect in the design of the ZAGGfolio that came to light two days after its publication. The defect kept the clasp from holding the ZAGGfolio closed unless the iPad 2 inside had an InvisibleShield or similar skin installed on the screen.
It’s not a huge, terrible issue – but it is one that had many users complaining and ZAGG has (admirably) acknowledged the issue quite quickly and informed customers that they will be shipping out replacement cases in a few weeks.
ZAGGfolio is ZAGGs new ‘all-in-one companion’ for the iPad 2 – offering a folio case and removable Bluetooth keyboard in one for the iPad 2.
ZAGG’s previous entry in this area is the ZAGGMate case and keyboard combo – and the new ZAGGfolio looks like a nice step up for the iPad 2. I really like how versatile this one looks.
The case looks good, doubles as a stand, and includes the automatic sleep/wake feature for iPad 2. The fact that the BT keyboard is removable is a great feature I think.
These are currently available for pre-order for $99.99, with an estimated ship date of July 21st. You can see more details or place a pre-order at ZAGG’s page for the ZAGGfolio.
