While it is not quite a replica of the Tron Legacy Light Suits, it does look like it comes from the future. The Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad 1, iPad 2 and iPad 3 is here to ring in the new millennium with its standalone Bluetooth keyboard. Fully customized with Apple media control keys, it is sure to make using the iPad even easier and more enjoyable. Also, apparently in the future everything will be more comfortable – the tablet keyboard case doubles as an iPad stand , so kick back and have fun.

Maybe it’s from another planet? Did it arrive here via one of those UFOs I’ve been spotting every night this week? Whatever it is, Logitech’s design of the Tablet Keyboard will definitely impress you with its black and turquoise design and multiple features.

Firstly the compact keyboard integrates the best of traditional keyboards and laptop keyboards – a definite trendsetter for a new breed of typing devices. This means you get all the special media controls for the iPad 2 and iPad 3 (play, pause, forward track, volume). Also, the keys aren’t as crunched together like other keyboards because of Logitech’s island style keys layout. Pairing the keyboard to the tablet is very easy too and I was ready to start typing right way. To test out the Bluetooth capability, I stood on the other side of the room and I was still able to control the tablet via Bluetooth.

When you're out and about, the keyboard and stand folds up into a handy carrying case that helps protect your keyboard. The two sides of the carrying case automatically attach through a small magnet, which seems like a pretty strong connection. When you are ready to use, the case converts into a pretty sturdy stand to prop up the iPad in two viewing angles.

Pros

    • Sleek design
    • Various shortcut buttons
    • Adjustable stand

                Overall: OKAY

                Logitech’s futuristic Tablet keyboard for the iPad will leave you typing away with a satisfied grin on your face. Excellent brand quality and a handy stand feature makes this one a solid choice for the iPad owner in need of functional keyboard accessory.
