Best iPad keyboard cases

The best keyboard cases available for Apple's new iPad

The iPad is a great media consumption device, but for those who want to input large amounts of text, the touchscreen keyboard isn't going to cut it. That's where a dedicated keyboard case comes in.

We round-up the best keyboard cases that work with Apple's new iPad. The good news is that most of them work with the iPad 2. In some cases, they even the original iPad.

Belkin Australia YourType Folio + Keyboard

We like the relatively slim design of the Belkin YourType Folio + Keyboard for iPad and the fact the keyboard can be detached is a nice touch. However, its flimsy feeling, plastic construction bows in the middle which makes typing a chore. The material case of the case also shows marks and dirt way too easily.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
