The Good Sturdy, cleanly-constructed case; keyboard is above average; the price isn't too high.
The Bad Nowhere near as thin or light as Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, and yet it's more expensive.
The Bottom Line Logitech's simple and functional Keyboard Folio offers a keyboard plus iPad protection, but it's too thick for its own good.
A husky keyboard solution for the iPad
I've reviewed more keyboard cases than I care to remember, and many of them have been made by Logitech. They've cornered the market on sensible and well-built solutions: the best of all may be the, which is well-built, has a great key layout, and is nicely compact.
Logitech keeps experimenting with form, and the Keyboard Folio ($99) is the latest iteration. It's a bigger-boned flip-open-type case, with a canvas-like exterior and plastic/rubberized interior. The Bluetooth keyboard's bonded to the inner lid, while the iPad (iPad 2, 3 or 4) attaches via a flexible bracket. The Folio comes in four colors (black, blue, yellow, and pink), and yes, there's a version for the iPad Mini ($89, but arguably less useful if you extrapolate based on the).
The Folio has an attractive look, but it's not nearly as streamlined as I'd prefer. It's lost the sexiness of the Ultrathin cover. But, it does have a little loop on the top lid for inserting the stylus of your choice. Yes, the Folio turns your iPad into a sturdy and lap-friendly portable keyboard-computer, but the total package is big, thick, and heavy: 1.38 pounds, nearly the same weight as the fourth-gen iPad. You're doubling the weight (and thickness) in your bag. Why not just bring a laptop? There's a whiff of an industrial design vibe, as if it's meant for institutional use more than consumer.
