ZAGGMate iPad case combines Bluetooth QWERTY keyboard

The Apple iPad is one of the best media consumption devices out there, allowing you to read e-books, watch videos, and play games. However, the on-screen keyboard can leave something to be desired. At the same time, the tablet device needs a little bit of protection too. The ZAGGMate iPad case does both. Unlike so many other cases that wrap the entirety of the iPad, this one clips on to the front. It’s kind of like some of the cases you may have encountered for the iPhone where they clip onto the back, except this one only protects the front (where the touchscreen is).

When you remove the iPad from the case, you’ll find that the ZAGGMate can also act as a stand, providing a little wedge to prop it up and allow for handsfree video-watching. The kicker is that the inside of the case also rocks a full QWERTY keyboard. It connects to the iPad via Bluetooth and lets you type up your blog posts to your heart’s content.

In addition to the QWERTYness, the keyboard also has dedicated media controls, a home button, brightness controls, and so on. The 510mAh battery inside is rechargeable via USB and should last a couple of weeks at a time.

The keyboard-touting ZAGGMate iPad case isn’t especially cheap at $100, but it’s not way out there either. If all you want is the case and not the keyboard, the $70 version may be more your cup of tea. Either way, you can be reasonably assured of the quality. After all, these are the same folks that make the Invisible Shield.
