Logitech Fabricskin Keyboard Folio for iPad Air a pricey way to add a spill-resistant keyboard

Peripherals
Hi, I'm Scott Stein and maybe you just bought an iPad, maybe you wanna outfit it with a keyboard because you want it to be kinda like a laptop. Well the Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio's one of several options that you have out there. How do you know which one to buy? Well, we just reviewed the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, which is also made by Logitech and it just acts as a cover for your iPad but had a really great keyboard. Now what is this one? This is a full case. And the idea behind the FabricSkin is that it's splash-resistant, this whole thing here is covered in a-- a fabric material that can resist splashes. It almost feels like a rubberized cover but that's the way the keyboard is actually designed. And this whole rubberized design wraps around your iPad so you could drop it, maybe you don't wanna do that too many times, and it feels pretty sturdy. It's expensive though, it's $150. The advantage to this keyboard case, besides its splash-resistant design, is that it auto-connects too. If you snap it right here magnetically, it actually knows that it's connected and turns on and pairs. That's a great because if you wanna close this and turn it off, it won't keep Bluetooth on and drain the battery of the keyboard or if you flip it like this in a Tablet mode which you can do, it keeps these keys non-connected so you won't accidentally press anything. And now you can work on your iPad as you normally would. There are a few cases out there that can already do that like the Belkin Ultimate Keyboard Case that I've also looked at. This keyboard layout here, I'm not as big fan of. It's big. It's a little weird, the keys are compressed, you have to share Tab, you share Caps Lock with the A key and the Tab with the Q key. There's some keys missing and the keys are big but they're almost too widely-spaced. I prefer the Logitech Keyboard Cover but you know, take a look at it and see how you feel. If you want one, however, that feels kid-proof, that feels compact, pretty sturdy and don't mind paying up, maybe you wanna get the FabricSkin. I feel like, for myself as a traveller, it's not the one I'd gravitate to. Oh, and it's got a little Styus loop, if like a [unk]. I'm Scott Stein and that's a look at the Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Cover for the iPad Air.
