Belkin YourType Album + Keyboard
Can a "regular" album iPad case and a keyboard co-exist? It's a boxy combination, as I've noticed time and again, because the attendance of one tends to beggarly accommodation in the other. Best keyboard case solutions I've apparent that action a "real" case tend to be imperfect, and wouldn't address to best people. A attenuate barring was the Belkin Keyboard Album for iPad 2, a able little foldable case that tucked a ample keyboard beneath its body. The Keyboard Album could acclimatize itself as bare to fit your needs.
Belkin's second-generation redesign, the YourType Album + Keyboard for the new iPad and iPad 2, has a simplified album case architecture but takes a altered attitude with the keyboard: instead of folding underneath, it stays on the central cover, but can be removed with Velcro.
Simpler? Yes. However, the new architecture isn't such a absurd album case. It's not terrible, but it's far from stand-out. It can act as its own iPad angle for landscape-mode cine viewing, but the YourType Album isn't a architecture that rises up to accommodated the iPad like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover. Some may like it added for its all-embracing protection, but there's annihilation that advocate about the YourType that isn't in abounding added keyboarded cases already. Yes, it works. But, clashing the aftermost version, this new case adopts no new ideas.
The YourType's keys are mushier than the ones on the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, but they are adequate and assignment well. While the keys are a bit abate than on your boilerplate laptop, the Enter, Backspace, Shift, and arrow keys are all analogously proportioned. Nothing's ever squished. Once I adapted to the keyboard's blueprint over a half-hour, accounting was fast and functional. The YourType is alluringly acclimated on a board or collapsed surface; on my lap it acquainted a little billowing and unstable. A row of committed buttons aloft the cardinal keys actuate iPad-specific functions like cut, paste, volume/play/pause control, and abecedarian text-selecting shortcuts. The YourType keyboard accuse via Micro-USB cable and has a congenital rechargeable battery; it pairs with the iPad the aforementioned way all Bluetooth keyboards do.
