What was it about Apple’s keyboard that you didn’t like? I ask because if you like the key-action but didn’t like the lack of stability for lap typing then you might want to reconsider. The typing action of the new Apple portfolio is the same but it is far more stable. I would go so far as to say that it is essentially as stable as a standard laptop when used in the lap. I do this every day for hours a day. It’s a huge difference from the previous version in that regard.
In thinking about options for keyboards I think there are quite a few considerations based on how you use your iPad. I had the previous Brydge and liked it a lot BUT there were a few things that I did not like.
The bottom of the screen sat level with or slightly below the back of the keyboard making the flick-up gesture to activate the dock/multitasking difficult. I would often miss and have to try again. This would be more of a problem with the new iPad that does not have a home button.
The edges of the Brydge white my arms/wrists would touch felt sharp against my skin and I found that irritating.
With the Brydge you do get multiple viewing angles and stability. The upside is it feels solid like a laptop. If you primarily want a laptop form factor you’ll like the Brydge. But with the Brydge comes extra weight and a feeling that the iPad isn’t really a tablet anymore… see next point.
Pulling it out of the clips to use as a tablet was not easy. They are pretty tight by design and that’s good in terms of keeping your iPad connected. But pulling the iPad out does require effort.
I often use my iPad as a tablet mode so being able to quickly detach or put the keyboard behind the iPad is something I really want.
The Logitech looks to have a form closer to Apple’s offering but again, adds more weight and seems really clumsy when folded back to use iPad as a tablet.
The Zagg has the benefit of being able to disconnect the tablet shell from keyboard so if using as a tablet this looks great. But the Zagg design is really deep and from what I’ve seen on video reviews it’s not going to work on a lap very well or at all. But at a desk with the keyboard or away from desk as a tablet it looks like a good solution.
One last thought, we’re now just 3 weeks from WWDC. What if Apple announces support for the mouse/trackpad? No way I’d want something like the Brydge without a trackpad if support for trackpads is announced.
