Judie and I backed the first Brydge keyboard for iPad on Kickstarter, and we’ve been a fan of their keyboards ever since. Their latest, the Brydge MAX+ for iPad Pro keyboard, is, by far, their best yet. The funny thing is that it isn’t the actual keyboard (although it is excellent) or the trackpad that makes it stand out.

When Raina and I were dating, I bought her a new iPad to replace the aging one she was using. For years she used it with a keyboard case. When she got a new iPad a few months ago, she needed a new keyboard case. That case is the Brydge 10.2 MAX+ Wireless Keyboard Case with Trackpad; it’s impressive.
The iPad went on sale on April 3, 2010. A little more than a year later, Brydge launched its first Kickstarter campaign to fund a keyboard worthy of the iPad’s refined design. I was happy to back it. Now they have released the Brydge Pro+, which integrates their keyboard with a trackpad. Let’s take a look.
I was one of the original backers when Brydge first came onto the market. I was impressed with the keyboard when it finally arrived. It was constructed from beautiful aluminum, offered a good typing experience and, my backer version even had Bluetooth speakers. Years later I’ve got the Brydge Pro Keyboard for 11” iPad Pro in hand. It’s impressive.
I recently reviewed a stand-alone keyboard for use with any Bluetooth-enabled device. It is a good keyboard and a great option if you want something “universal.” If, however, you want something that is specifically designed for your primary device, and you happen to be using an iPad Pro 10.5”, look no further than the Brydge 10.5 Bluetooth keyboard.
If you have an iPad and always wanted to get a sense of what it would be like to have a MacBook with iOS, get yourself the Brydge Keyboard. I’ve been using it for the past two months, and if it weren’t for occasional needs for an actual Laptop, this would be my go-to setup.
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.
The Brydge keyboard for the iPad is a Kickstarter success story. Since releasing their first, crowdfunded keyboard, the company has continually been adding to their line-up. There’s now a Brydge keyboard for each of the current iPads. These are premium iPad accessories but, as the holiday approaches, the company has made all of the keyboards a bit more accessible.
At CES 2016, Gear Diary got a sneak peak at Brydge’s new clam shell-shaped Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad Pro, fittingly named the BrydgePro. The BrydgePro keyboard borrows much of its design aesthetic from Apple’s Macbook keyboard, even including backlit keys. The BrydgePro is now available for pre-order for $189, expected to ship in April. The BrydgePro Keyboard is made out of premium aluminum, just like Apple’s Macbook products, allows for a 180-degree tilt, and features a 3-month long (rechargeable) battery life. The keys are backlit so there’s no fear of working in the dark and it connects to your…
My 11″ iPad Pro is a fantastic tablet. It’s fast, light, and powerful. I use it for reading and games, but it doubles as a powerful productivity device. And now, thanks to new accessories, including the Nomad Modern Leather Case and the Modern Leather Folio, it’s even better.
Brydge products are a key part of my productivity. Their Brydge 11 MAX+ keyboard lets me get more from my iPad than ever, and their Stone Pro Docking Station keeps my desktop computer peripherals connected. Now they’ve released two new products- the Brydge SP+ Wireless Keyboard with Touchpad for Surface Pro 8 and the Brydge Stone Pro TB4 Universal Docking Station.
I picked up an M1 11” iPad Pro a few weeks ago. It’s not vastly different than the iPad Pro it replaces, but it does have a bit more speed along with a new battery that hasn’t already had two years to degrade. When I got my iPad Pro, I immediately placed it into the Pitaka Mag EZ Folio for safekeeping; I’m a fan.
My 11″ iPad Pro was a fantastic tablet right out of the box. The Brydge Pro+ Wireless Keyboard with Trackpad I reviewed made it even better. Now, the new Brydge 10.2 MAX+ is ready to do the same thing for the less expensive 7th and 8th Generation iPads. Available for preorder, the $129.99 accessory arrives the week of April 12.
Nomad has distinguished itself as a leader in mobile device accessories by using premium materials and top-notch craftsmanship. One of those premium materials is the Horween leather used in their cases, watch bands, and other offerings. Their new Nomad Rugged Case for iPad Pro features Horween leather, and the result is as gorgeous as it is protective.
The new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 11 and 12.9 is now available for order from Apple. This pricey keyboard/trackpad combo had been billed as coming sometime in May. As noted by Thurott, the keyboard should be arriving starting late next week.
The leaders in design-focused peripherals, Brydge announced that they are expanding their product range, starting with one of the highest requested product features for tablets.
For years we’ve heard that iPads will never replace MacBooks. They would never be as powerful, or nearly as good as carrying around your trusty laptop. And then Apple announced iPadOS. So before everyone rushes to purchase themselves the wrong keyboard cases for their iPad, let me tell you about my personal favorite, and go-to case: Logitech’s Slim Folio Pro for iPad Pro 11-inch & 12.9 Inch.
The most expensive Kickstart Project that Judie and I have backed just got funded. (Okay, “over-funded if there is such a thing”.) The Brydge is an elegant solution to the lack of quality iPad keyboards and accessories currently on the market. Brydge connects to your iPad using a patent-pending hinge which allows for close to 180 degrees of iPad positioning and holds your iPad secure. In other words, it turns your iPad into a NetMac complete with speakers and all. As the Creatives note Brydge’s aluminum body is machined and anodized so that it matches the look and feel of…
The Brydge is a Kickstarter Project that Judie came across. It is a keyboard, case, speaker in one that effectively turns the iPad into a laptop. The funding goal was $90,000 and they have thus far raised over $460,000 in pledges with 30 days to go. Here’s the rundown. Project Title: Brydge + iPad: Do more. Status: In Progress Closing Date for Funding: Monday Jun 4, 2012 URL of the Project: Find it here. From the Creatives: Is it just us, or does it feel like the options for iPad keyboards and accessories are excessive in quantity, yet lacking in…
Nomad has made a name for itself by releasing some of the best mobile accessories on the market. Whether you have an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, Nomad has something for you. Now, with their new Nomad Pen, they’ve gone in a new analog direction; sure, it’s “just” a pen, but it is all Nomad.
Zek and I had planned on being in Las Vegas to cover CES while Dan held down the fort from home until the coronavirus yet again derailed our best-laid plans. Long story short, Zek and I didn’t travel to Las Vegas. Even so, we wanted to work together, so we traveled, just to the opposite coast. Here is the CES 2022 gear that Zek, Dan, and I used.
