Review Part 1: ZAGG’s ZAGGmate Case with Keyboard


 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 will come back with part 2 later at another time with my actual usage thoughts.

The ZAGGmate is packaged in a plastic container with the cardboard sleeve around it. They maximized space as there is not a lot of room left. Inside the box, you get the case (with keyboard in this instance), instruction insert, USB cable (for charging), and 4 stick on rubber feet. The rubber feet can be placed on the back of the case if you want it to help prevent scratches.

When I report back, I will also try to list out as many of the features as I can.



ZAGGmate w/ keyboard Features

•Aircraft-grade aluminum with a bead-blasted, anodized finish that matches the iPad

•Military grade high-density padding for superior drop protection
