Good keyboards for the iPad
The iPad is a tablet first and foremost but with a good keyboard can be used for heavy content creation. That requires a good physical keyboard and the six covered in this article are the cream of the crop.
Most of the keyboards covered here serve as a case for the iPad, while only one does not. There are also two keyboards that turn the iPad into a MacBook Air clone for those really wanting a laptop instead of the tablet that works like one.
Owners of the iPad mini aren't overlooked with the inclusion of a great keyboard/case for the littlest iPad.
Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover
This keyboard doesn't protect the entire iPad like most cases but it does protect the vulnerable screen. It is the thinnest and lightest model in this collection and adds little bulk to the gear bag.
The keyboard is nearly full-sized like all of the models included here, and is a solid accessory for the iPad. There are control keys for the iPad to make common functions a simple key tap away.
The Ultrathin attaches to the iPad via a magnetic hinge, similar to the Smart Cover by Apple.
All of the keyboards in this collection connect to the iPad via Bluetooth, and all but one of them are charged via a miniUSB cable (included).
Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover ready for work
Here's a photo of the Ultrathin with the iPad ready for work. The iPad fits snugly in the slot above the keyboard which holds it magnetically. You can even pick the assembly up by the iPad without it falling out.
