ZAGGfolio for iPad 2
So you own an iPad 2, or still planning to own one? Why? What is your purpose? For a lot of people, it is really because they need a laptop, but the tablet is way more convenient and easy to use than an actual laptop so they replace their trusty laptop with an iPad 2. However, let’s face it. A tablet is not a laptop, and this simple fact of life is presented to many when encountering the iPad’s touchscreen keyboard for the first time.
Some make a decision that they’re not going to use the keyboard often anyway so that’s okay, but then realize, after a few emails that indeed this part of the iPad 2 is very vital, and that the keyboard is really a part of everyday use. There’s no use avoiding it, because you’re really going to encounter it again and again, whether you like it or not.
Not every hand is meant to type on a touchscreen. If you have small stylus-sized fingers, then good for you. If you don’t, then Zaggfolio is here for you. Some portable keyboards could be very inconvenient, which actually defeats the purpose of purchasing the iPad 2 because it’s more convenient to bring than a laptop right? Don’t worry, Zaggfolio is not one of them. This keyboard is very thin and not bulky. It weighs 19 ounces. On the other hand, it still has island-style keys, and it also included all the keyboard shortcuts. It also has special shortcuts for you to use on your iPad, which is not included on a regular computer keyboard. It mimics the exact feel of using a laptop keyboard, which is quite understandable because the main reason why you’re purchasing it is because you want to enjoy the keyboard experience of the laptop while still enjoying the portability and lightweight of the iPad.
Talking about convenience, this keyboard also has a really strong battery. It has a rechargeable battery which could last up to several weeks, even without charging them.
Aside from the convenience that it provides in solving all your keyboard problems, the Zaggfolio also offers your iPad protection. It has an outer covering – enough to provide security for both your iPad and your keyboard. It’s very flexible, kinda like a skin, and it covers everything except your iPad’s ports. It is manufactured and designed like this as to ensure each user that indeed this is really safe to use on an iPad and would not create harsh scratches on it. Don’t get this keyboard and covering wrong though. The truth is that they’re very durable and shock-proof up to a certain point.
Finally, it’s best feature is that it’s connected to your iPad via bluetooth. Yes, it requires no cables and it’s absolutely wireless. there are no cables to get twisted and tangled. No strings that could break with mishandling. Also, it would be really easy to assemble, disassemble, as well as to attach and detach.
The only down part of this product is that it could be pretty pricey for some people. The Zaggfolio is available for purchase via the Zagg website for $99.99 with free shipping.
