As Apple Inc.’s iPad 2 settles into the market, more cases are appearing. Announcing on Aug. 5 is Belkin, whose case includes a Bluetooth keyboard, handy for writing and other tasks. List price is $99, which is in line with similar products in the marketplace.

I’ve long been a fan of Belkin’s products; on the whole, they’ve been very good ones at reasonable prices. While I haven’t seen this product yet — a review unit is promised — I do have confidence in the firm and what it offers.


Here’s the story:

“Belkin … unveiled the Keyboard Folio,” which the firm claims is “an all-in-one Bluetooth keyboard and protective folio solution for [Apple Inc.’s] iPad 2,” the announcement said. The product “features TruType keys for a comfortable, computer-style typing experience and … separate, adjustable modes for viewing and typing,” according to the news release

According to the firm, “a 1.7 mm key travel improves typing accuracy and speed, making it easier to edit documents or draft emails. Lightweight, slim and stylish, the Keyboard Folio sports a unique tri-fold design that tucks the keyboard away when not in use and keeps the screen protected on the go.”

Again, I’ll have to see these features in order to pass judgment. Meanwhile, details on the product can be found online here.
