Sometime ago, Iâ€™d reviewed a keyboard/case combo from ZAGG â€“ the ZAGGmate â€“ for my iPad 1. Thanks to its slick and slim design, along with the capable bluetooth keyboard, it became a constant companion whenever I traveled with the iPad. The one downside was that the tabletâ€™s back was left exposed to potential drops and falls – a trade-off for its sexy form factor. So as an alternative, ZAGG introduced the ZAGGfolio, a folio-styled case that not only houses a much improved keyboard, but also offers front and rear protection for the iPad when closed.
Seeing how Iâ€™d become quite reliant on the ZAGGmate, I was eager to pick up a case with similar functionality for my new iPad. And now that Iâ€™ve had 3 weeks of hands-on time with the ZAGGfolio, Iâ€™ve once again found myself growing very fond of this combo case, thanks in large part to the drastically improved typing experience offered over its predecessor.
