Review Part 1: Kensington KeyFolio™ Bluetooth Keyboard and Case for iPad

I just received my loaner unit for review of the new Kensington Folio for iPad. Instead of doing one large review, I decided that I would break it down between an un-boxing / sneak peak, and then my follow-up review on the actual usage next week.

You can find out more on the product here. It's not released yet but it's available for pre-order. It retails for $99.99

The Kensington KeyFolio™not only protects your iPad when on the road but also provides a handy wireless Bluetooth®keyboard and hands free stand when you reach your destination.The rubberized keys were specially designed to cushion your iPad screen from bumps and scratches when the folio is closed.

Provides full access to all iPad controls and 30-pin connector

Rubberized keys are spill-proof and also protect iPad screen from scratching when closed

Bluetooth keyboard delivers wireless operation and includes iPad specific keys

Adjustable stand securely holds your iPad in landscape mode

Magnet-free folio case ensures uninterrupted operation of the iPad's digital compass

The Folio is packaged in a cardboard box. With the Folio, you get a quick start guide as well as a mini usb cable for recharging the Bluetooth keyboard. The case itself is made with synthetic leather. The stitching adds a very nice touch to this. The keyboard is fully covered in rubber. I’m looking forward to using this and will report back the pro’s and cons next week.
