My E3 travel test: iLuv's leather iPad 2 keyboard case
iLuv's $129 leather iPad 2 folio has its own Bluetooth keyboard. Ours just arrived in time for a little travel testing.
The Professional Case with Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad 2 doesn't have a catchy name, but this type of case isn't about looking sleek or sexy. The leather case bears a solid, professional look, but its real draw is the Bluetooth keyboard and leather palmrest tucked into the lid. Much like cases like and before, the addition of a physical Bluetooth keyboard theoretically should make fast-paced typing an easier process than using the iPad's serviceable virtual keyboard.
The keyboard detaches from the case via velcro, and can be used separately from the folio case--a nice touch we haven't seen to date.
Instant impressions: the keyboard's flat keys feel solid, and the palmrest is as comfortable as can be for the size, but some keys are too compressed for my taste.
Why am I really doing this? Well, because I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone while I was out there, and because I was curious. Check back after E3 for my review. In the meantime, click above for some up-close picks and a side-by-side comparison with the
