As many of you know, my iPad was stolen on our Texas trip. Well, it has been replaced, with an iPad 2. Yeah! I am so excited! Anyway, I received this really nice, iPad keyboard case from Zagg. It is so handy. The case has the keyboard built in that connects through Bluetooth. It is a keyboard, case and stand, all in one! The Zagg Keys ProFolio Plus.
The keyboard charges by being connected to my computer by USB. The part of the case that my iPad fits in to is a polyurethane shell. Great protection for my iPad. This is also available in leather. It folds a little so that the iPad stands up in a little slot directly behind the keyboard. This is so GREAT! This will be going along with me on trips. I will just remember to carry it with me everywhere we go and not leave it in our LOCKED vehicle.
This is just like having a mini laptop. The only thing missing is a small mouse pad. There are special keys to return to the home page, adjust volume up and down, search, slideshow, mute and a few others. I like that it is small, but not so small that I hit more than one key at a time. That is one reason my children have been unable to convince me to purchase a smart phone. I need something that is large enough to read, compact enough to carry with me, and yet large enough that I can type without errors. It has a backlight for the keyboard. When you press the backlight button it will go from low, medium to high. I will be using this when we travel in the evening.
Zagg Keys Profolio Plus for the iPad 2 retails for $129.99 on the Zagg website. You can set the backlight to your choice of 7 different colors. Mine is set on purple!
The ZAGGkeys PRO and PROplus are ultra-thin Bluetooth keyboard accessories that accentuate the utility and convenience of the Apple iPad 2, 3 or 4, with the added benefit of a backlit keyboard on the PROplus model. The lightweight and durable aluminum construction of the ZAGGkeys PRO and PROplus match the look and feel of the iPad.
