When will tablets like the iPad finally take over the laptop universe once and for all? It may not happen this year--or that year, for that matter--but convertible keyboard covers like the Logitech Keyboard Case will certainly accelerate the process.
We've wondered many times whether a good keyboard case could be the missing link that would make an ultraportable iPad an excellent tool for writing on the go. The $99 Logitech Keyboard Case by Zagg is the best we've seen so far. It's an update of last year's Zaggmate case for the iPad, tailored to fit the iPad 2's dimensions.
Unlike some cases we've tried before, the keyboard employed here is an honest-to-goodness "real" keyboard: the keys depress fully and feel physical, with no strange rubberized or flattened feel to them. The aluminum frame is the same width and length as an iPad 2, so when you're done typing, you can fold the iPad into it screen-down for travel.
