Brydge creates some of the best keyboards for use with iPads. I’ve reviewed a number of them and have always been impressed. Now Brydge is preparing a keyboard for the 10.5” iPad Pro. I love the new iPad and can see the Brydge keyboard as making it even better. And if you pre-order you can save $20.
As the company explains:
The only keyboard to truly bring a MacBook like experience to the new iPad Pro. Precision engineered out of high-grade aluminum, the Brydge 10.5 takes the style cues of the iPad Pro and forms the perfect keyboard, creating the ultimate mobile productivity device.
The Brydge 10.5 bluetooth keyboard will brings versatility and productivity to your fingertips. When combined with the NEW iPad Pro 10.5″, they’ll create the ultimate in mobile productivity. A perfect balance between tablet and laptop, giving you the power to be mobile and highly productive. Anytime, anywhere.
Everything you can do with your iPad… now do it better. Watch, learn, play, create, and type at full speed. The Brydge 10.5 will give you more from your iPad. Use as a tablet, use as a touchscreen laptop. Set the iPad Pro at the optimal angle and keep your hands free to touch, type, and work faster. Anywhere. Anytime. Make the iPad Pro an even more powerful tool.
The Brydge Keyboard means serious business. From its lightweight aluminum unibody design to its specialized hinges, to its backlit keys, this is a keyboard that is designed for people whose iPads are productive, rather than consumption, devices.
The patented hinges are central to why the Brydge keyboards are unique but it is really the typing experience that makes them stand out in a crowded market. They have just 1.2mm’s of travel on the keys which makes typing quickly a pleasure. Add in the 3-level backlighting on the keys and the top row of dedicated iOS special function keys and you have an accessory that really does let you get close to a laptop experience on Apple’s newest tablet offering.
