Product Description

Need a big boost to your iPad 2 productivity on the go or at home? Welcome to Typi, the all-in-one wonder. Typi combines a premium case, convenient stand, and detachable QWERTY Bluetooth wireless keyboard. The result is a sleek and portable iPad 2 companion that will maximize work time as well as fun time. Typi starts with an extremely handsome folio case in handcrafted leather and felt. Typi's quality and professional look will definitely turn heads, but the case also makes your iPad 2 travel ready, providing necessary protection against the usual dents, dings, and wear and tear. And because Typi is custom-designed for Apple's second-generation iPad, all ports and buttons are accessible through the case - even the camera! - so you'll never have to take Typi on and off. Typi is much more than a carrying case, however. The same strap that fastens the case can serve as a stand to prop up the iPad 2 into one of three viewing angles, depending on personal preference. The secret is a clever and intuitive buttonhole design - in just two snaps and a few seconds, you can stand the device up to watch video clips, play games, share a presentation with a colleague, and much more. But perhaps the true star of the show is Typi's versatile keyboard. Courtesy of Bluetooth 2.0, Typi's full QWERTY keyboard can communicate wirelessly with your iPad 2 in a few simple steps. From there, you'll enjoy not only the increased speed of a dedicated physical keyboard, but the convenience of a complete set of custom hotkeys for common iPad functions. Playback functions, volume control, copy & paste, search, screenshot capture, and more are all at your fingertips. And amazingly, the full keyboard is compact enough to travel in the case right along with you - it's kept firmly in place with magnets. The keyboard offers 12 hours of operation on a full charge, and can recharge in a few hours with the included USB cable.

The three viewing angles work fine for me.

Keys are small for my medium size fingers, but I suspect that will be true for all keyboards this size.

Overall, a very bad experience, buyers, beware.

This is a well made, expensive looking keyboard for iPad 2, even the iPad pairs and fits in somewhat snuggly. Bluetooth connection is easy with the keyboard in suede case, which is a little bulky. Keys are small for my medium size fingers, but I suspect that will be true for all keyboards this size. Other than size, keyboard works well. There are dedicated keys for search, home, volume, play/pause etc. Magnet to keep keyboard in position is nice.

Here are the downsides:

1. The stand has only 3 reclines, and for me only one of them works. Sometimes even that is difficult, especially on slippery glass or shiny polished wood like surfaces. It does not stay in position because there is no grip for the surface.
2. Suede is high maintainence.
3. It is relatively high priced and less expensive keyboard options include Kensington Apple iPad 2 KeyFolio Pro Performance Case with wireless Bluetooth keyboard for Apple iPad 2 3G Tablet, WIFI Model, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB with different adjustable angles and Trent IMP38B Airbender iPad 2 Case with Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard for Apple iPad 2 3G Tablet, WIFI Model and others.
4. Sometimes the Bluetooth connection does not establish automatically on restarting the keyboard and you have to go into settings and manually reconnect iPad to the keyboard.
5. You must realize that this does not work like a laptop/notebook keyboard because there is no trackpad; you still have to use fingers on iPad, which takes time to get used to.

This is for buyers who like the luxury look but if you are looking for value, there are equally well working wireless keyboard/case combos for iPad, although they lack the magnetic holder for keyboard.

Here's a list of pro's and con's for those of you considering purchasing this for your iPad 2:

Pro's:
- high quality leather case that makes carrying the iPad easy and well-protected
- easy to pair the keyboard with the iPad 2
- case also functions as a stand
- keyboard is removable and can be used up to 33 feet away from the iPad
- iPad sleeps when the case is closed
- controls basic iPad functions from the case, such as next track, volume up/down, mute, locking the iPad

Con's:
- has an unusual keyboard layout with especially small shift keys that seem to be too small and out of place; also the page up/down keys don't seem to work when scrolling web pages
- find that there is a keyboard lag when typing fast (I type over 100 wpm)

They keyboard is a bit of a deal breaker for me. If you want a keyboard that is more traditional, I would suggest the Zagg keyboards. Otherwise I like the case and will probably use it more to transport the iPad without the case.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is an extremely nice product for the serious iPad user. It combines a very attractive and functional case with an outboard bluetooth keyboard that actually works well. (My wife said that she liked everything about it except for the tan color. Me, I like the color.) The case itself has all of the attributes I demand: it looks professional, it has a magnet that tells the iPad to turn off when it is closed, and it enables the user to prop up the iPad laptop-style for serious work. The closing strap doubles as a prop on the back to enable the iPad to stand up, and while I was initially skeptical, in practice this works out fine.

The keyboard is very nicely made, and attaches to the folio via magnets, which is a very nice arrangement that holds it securely in place, while allowing for instant hassle-free removal for whatever reason, including charging. The keyboard charges via a supplied micro USB cable which can attach to a powered USB port or any charger that is designed to power a USB device. In a bit of serendipity, it happens that the Kindle Fire and latest Kindle chargers (which are the same; also using a micro USB connector) will work fine to charge this keyboard.

The only quibble I have with this device is the unavoidable fact that the keyboard is smaller than most touch typists (such as myself) are used to, and that means that the keyboard takes some getting used to for touch typing. On the plus side of the ledger the keys have a decent tactile feel, a good build quality, and when you press a key you always get the character, which is more than can be said for at least one bluetooth keyboard that I have tried.

The design on this is slick. Very classy brown on brown, and the leather strap is a touch of elegance. The little pull tab to actually stick in the iPad in there is a little bit of a hassle to deal with, but you won't be doing it all that much.

As nice as this is, it just can't be my everyday case because of the keyboard (though it being removable is a nice idea). I just hate the keyboard itself. Should have emulated the Apple bluetooth keyboard to achieve a full keyboard like feel. It's constricted, small, and unintended mashing of buttons is rampant.
