Hands-on guide to keyboard/cases for iPad and iPad mini (Spring 2013)
The iPad ecosystem is thriving in third-party accessories, and for those wanting a keyboard to use with Apple's tablet, there are many to choose from. There are new keyboards released all the time, so figuring out which one might work best is almost as hard as finding a good app in the App Store.
This collection of iPad keyboards is unique in that I have used all of them. I have used lots of iPad keyboards in my work, and these are the best of the bunch. Three brand new keyboards from Logitech have made this collection.
All of the cases in this group are shown closed for thinness and open for business. With the one exception mentioned, all of the keyboards charge via micro USB, and will last for months on a charge. A micro USB to USB charging cable is included with these keyboards. They all connect to the iPad via Bluetooth.
In addition to nine good iPad keyboards, there is a bonus for iPad mini owners. Two keyboards for the iPad mini are also covered in this collection.
