The iPad Mini’s form factor needs a bit of getting used to, but it doesn’t take long before your forget that it’s smaller than an iPad and that you start trying to get things done on it. In order to type quicker than with the touchscreen, you’ll want a keyboard of some kind. This folio combines a sturdy case with a diminutive keyboard, just for the iPad Mini.
The iPad Mini Leather Bluetooth Keyboard Case is made out of leather. The folio holds the iPad Mini tight and it’s quite secure. The keyboard isn’t the slimmest that I’ve seen, but it works well. It can be recharged via mini USB cable. The keyboard is waterproof, and dust and water resistant. While it’s not the thinnest, when combined with the iPad Mini, it’s still about the size of a book, which is actually a pretty nice form-factor.
You can get yours for $39.95(USD) over at iPad Mates, which is a lot cheaper than some of the name brand Bluetooth iPad keyboards out there.
