Going head-to-head with Apple is a dicey situation, but apparently AZiO thinks they've found a niche for their Bluetooth keyboard. Now that you can use BT keyboards with all iOS 4.x devices, you should consider adding one. AZiO says on their website that the virtual keyboard may be fine for travel, but when you're using your iOS device at work or home you may want a full keyboard. However, I could really use a portable keyboard when I travel. Perhaps it's because when I'm at home, I do most of my typing on a MacBook Pro with a full-size wired USB keyboard. But on the road, lately with just an iPad, an external keyboard would be great for typing articles and long emails.
Here is another unique case that I wanted to try out. I contacted Zerochroma and they were kind enough to send me an evaluation unit. If you are not in the market for an iPad case. You still may also find this interesting as they have the same type of case for other devices. Those include iPhone, iPod Touch and Nano, and Kindle.
With Christmas right around the corner, you may still be looking for that perfect gift for that someone who has all the gadgets, including an iPad. It may be cliche to say that what they need is something to carry them in, but here is something I bet yoiu never thought of......clothing that will carry all your gadgets at once....including an iPad. Yea, I know!
Well ScotteVest sells clothing for the gadget geek in your life. Even the Woz wears one.
HandStands sent me over their iPad Case with Keyboard for review. In the package you get the brown case, instruction sheet and the mini USB cable for charging. The product looked pretty decent as I removed it from the package and opened it up. I noted the nice looking stitching around the edges. As I examined the case/keyboard, I then realized it was almost an exact copy of the Kensington Folio case.
Zagg recently introduced and has available for Pre-Order, two cases called the ZAGGmate. The main difference between the two is one has a Bluetooth keyboard built in and the other does not. I was fortunate to receive a sample for review today of the ZAGGmate with Keyboard, and I am pretty excited about it. As I have been doing on the larger reviews, I have been splitting them up into two. It makes it easier on me. So I wanted to share the unboxing pics and some of the general product specs with you.
I had contacted a company called Pinlo because I saw they had an iPad case called the Xyber Pro. I thought it was different and unique and was very interested in trying it out. I have been using it for a few days now and it’s a really nice case. As you can see, the case comes in a plastic container. It’s re-sealable, so for the sake of recycling, keep it and you can store the Xyber Pro back in it if you switch to a different case (depending on your task).
Not too long ago, I was reading the accessories Forums on Macrumors and I spotted a post where a few people were wanted to review a Powis iPad case. The Powis iPad cases were released not too long ago. In this particular instance though, the requestor was iCasesOnline.com, who is a company who provides iPhone and iPad cases. They were recently selected to be an authorized Powis seller. I was waiting to see how many people pounced on an opportunity like that. As you know, I love trying out new accessories, so I imagined there would have been a lot of requests. I stopped by the forums the next day and there were no takers yet, so I decided to put my name in the hat and got the opportunity to test drive it.
I just received this review sample yesterday, so I wanted to add some unboxing pics of it. I have been using this since then but not enough to give a full review on. I will report back with part two at a later date with my usage thoughts.

New audio accessories are constantly evolving for all iOS devices, and starting earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), there were some great ones in action. Most prefer something compact, with good quality sound, and affordability. An integrated app is nice, but not crucial.
The Bose MIE2i wired mobile headset
are perfect examples of earbuds that are compact, have great sound quailty and are affordable. They are highly rated for both sound quality and comfort. They come with three sizes of StayHear silicon tips and an answer/end button on the inline microphone. The reviews say the quality of sound is tops. Note that these are standard earbuds - no noise-isolating to block unwanted sound.
A comparison of these earbuds and other great accessories are in the 2011 Best Gear article.
