The more I use my iPad (1, 2 and now 4), the more I think I need a keyboard. With a decent keyboard I can essentially leave the laptop computer at home, even though the laptop is already a very lightweight one. With a decent keyboard, I can browse the web, jot notes, tweet, update Facebook / Linkedin / Google+ status and compose / reply emails easily … and that’s pretty much all the things I do day in, day out.
So it’s like a mission to find the best keyboard for iPad. First, the original Zagg Solo – it’s a good one but not that protective. Then the updated Zagg ZAGGFolio – stylish, solid but heavy. Then I found a really good one – the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard. It’s beautiful, lightweight, and with a comfortable keyboard. The only down side is that it cannot protect the iPad very well.
That is the reason why I backed the Brydge + project in Kickstarter. From the project page, the keyboard certainly looks like the perfect keyboard – rock solid, good keyboard, and come with a speaker. 9 months (!) after the project get funded, I finally received the keyboard – it’s heavy, thick, and with sticky keys. You can check out the project comment page on how upset all the other backers are, in fact many still have not received their keyboards.
Yes, the more I use my iPad, the more I think I need a keyboard.
