Belkin’s Ultimate Keyboard Case makes my iPad 4 that much better by giving it keyboard capability and sturdy protection. Sent to us from our good friends at the IPR Group in Toronto, I have had it just over a month and am happy to say it’s one of the better products I have received in a while.
What’s so great about this case?
Released on March 27, 2013, this case uses a revolutionary aluminum alloy and magnet construction that is just 6.4mm thin and weighs 17 ounces. It folds flat to hide the keyboard when watching movies or reading. When not in use, the keyboard automatically shuts off, to offer instant access to the iPad’s onscreen keyboard and help save battery life.
Using Belkin’s award-winning TruType™ keys, the Ultimate Keyboard Case provides a smooth, laptop-like typing experience to minimize errors and maintain typing speed. It also offers a fully protective back cover to keep your iPad safe from scratches, scuffs and everyday wear and tear when the keyboard is attached. It retails for $99.99 for the Black and $129.99 for the White case. I prefer the black case having received that one in the mail.
Bluetooth® 2.0 functionality is obviously a big selling feature of this case. Personally I love the fact that this case works so seamlessly with Bluetooth. It will last for 160 hours battery life under constant use and has 6-month standby battery life. It’s rechargeable battery uses included Micro USB cable.
