iPad Accessories: The ZAGGMate keyboard case

We continue to bring you all the news and of course some speculation about the Apple iPad and just recently have posted articles the upcoming iPad 2 and BlackBerry PlayBook release date clash, a review on the SlingPlayer for iPad app and news on the camera for the iPad 2.

This news today is about an accessory for the current iPad which could be really useful to you. Called the ZAGGMate iPad keyboard case this one is a bit different to most of the iPad cases that are on the market as it’s predominantly a keyboard with the added bonus of being a case as well. The ZAGGMate has just been reviewed by Mark Gurman over on 9to5Mac and was actually called “awesome.” Now that’s some praise!

The review takes a thorough look at the keyboard which has some iPad shortcuts, and also has impressive things to say about the speed of using the keyboard as opposed to Apple’s virtual iPad keyboard. Connectivity and battery life are also looked at with the battery life called “fantastic.” For use as a case though the ZAGGMate is not so impressive and a protective bag is also recommended.

Best Buy already has the ZAGGMate in stock or you can pre-order from ZAGG online for December 17 shipping. It costs $99 or $69 for a version without the Bluetooth keyboard.
