Since getting my 9.7” iPad Pro my MacBook feels neglected. The iPad Pro is so powerful, and iOS apps have matured so completely, that there are few things I CAN’T do on my iPad. It’s for that reason my MacBook HATES the new ZAGG Slim Book Pro Wireless Keyboard and Detachable Case with Stand for iPad Pro 9.7”.

I had the original iPad Pro but found the size a bit of a challenge. When the smaller 9.7″ iPad Pro was released, I jumped on it. It works with the Apple Pencil but is the same size and weight as the iPad Air 2. The $129.99 ZAGG Slim Book Ultra-Slim Tablet Keyboard makes my favorite iPad even better.
I held out before getting the Apple iPad Pro longer than I expected but finally gave in. I didn’t love the Apple keyboard case and opted for the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple iPad Pro. The company was kind enough to send a review sample and I am thrilled! I love using this keyboard.
When I first pulled the Zagg Rugged Folio Keyboard Case for the iPad Air out of its box I was unimpressed. It is thick. It is heavy. It is bulky. It takes the thin, light iPad Air and makes it totally unAiry. Then I started using it. It is thick, heavy and bulky but it is also pretty great.
I have never been a huge fan of keyboard cases for the iPad. All too often the size of the keyboard required too many sacrifices and the case portion weighed down an otherwise thin and light tablet. The iPad Air has me looking with new eyes and the $99.99 ZAGGkeys Folio with Backlit Keyboard is making me a believer.
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.
After making a huge investment on a tablet such as the iPad Pro, chances are you need a protective case for it. Initially, when the tablet was released, there were many cases that simply put did not protect it or the new magnetic Apple Pencil. Luckily Zagg has not one, but three options you might be interested in.
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.
ZAGG began as a company providing screen protectors for various devices. In recent years they have expanded their product line rather remarkably. Among their products is a line of keyboards that help make your phones and tablets even better productivity devices. The ZAGG Flex keyboard is a new keyboard from ZAGG. It is small, portable and gets the job done.
ZAGG keyboards and cases are among the best on the market. Newer one’s to rely on past successes, they have just announced a new Rugged Book Wireless Keyboard and Detachable Case for the Apple iPad, 9.7” iPad Pro, iPad Air and iPad Air 2.
Apple’s latest commercial for the iPad Pro highlights the fact that the tablet is powerful enough, and apps sophisticated enough, that it can replace a laptop. I’m not convinced I can go without a laptop, but the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro certainly moves the productivity of the iPad Pro in that direction.
In fall of 2014, I published a review of the ZAGG Rugged Folio Keyboard Case for the iPad Air. It was serious protection for a serious tablet. Now that Apple offers an affordable 9.7” iPad more people will likely be taking iPads more places. Thankfully, ZAGG has released the Rugged Messenger for the latest 9.7″ iPad in Apple’s lineup.
It should come as no surprise that ZAGG is already rolling out protection and accessories for the new Apple iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. First out of the gate is InvisibleShield Screen Protection for both devices and keyboards for the new iPad Pro. Personally, I’m most excited for the ZAGG SlimBook’s protection and typing prowess.
Several of us have said before that it is hard to truly assess a ‘daily use’ item in a quick review done in a day or two of use immediately after a product launch. Maybe there are updates coming so we are less critical in that area, or maybe we can accommodate a behavior change in the short term that we can’t over the long haul. So instead of a ‘review’, I wanted to post 10 first impressions of the new iPad Pro. Of course, I am writing this post on the Pro! I think it is important to understand…
I don’t travel near as much as I used to, but when I do I no longer drag a laptop with me, opting instead for my iPad Air. Of course, to do any productive writing I will need a separate keyboard; recently I took the ZAGG Folio case with built-in Bluetooth keyboard and it fit the bill perfectly.
Between my iPhone 6 Plus and my iPad, I am finding myself using my MacBook less and less, and while I am pretty good at typing on the screen having a keyboard with me is a huge productivity boost. The ZAGG Pocket Keyboard is a great way to do just that. Best of all, it folds up and is tiny!
When I see something cool in an email or RSS feed, I check to see if it was covered by Gear Diary and I just missed it! Today I got a pre-order email for the Zagg Pocket Keyboard, a great mobile physical keyboard without the usual compromises, I was interested and saw we had done a YouTube preview!
This post about the Toshiba Chromebook 2 has been a long time coming. It isn’t because I don’t like the machine. I do. Rather, it has taken time because I tried to see how it might fit into my workflow. I’ve come away from the experience impressed by what Google and Toshiba have done. Still, I need to come clean…
The other day we reviewed the ZAGGkeys Keyboard Folio. I was impressed. Before that, Mike took a look at the Belkin QODE Slim Style Keyboard Case. Today we are looking at the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover takes a different approach than the aforementioned iPad keyboards, because it isn’t actually a case.
I ordered a Zagg LEATHERskin for iPad mini last week. (It looked interesting and Zagg was offering a good deal on some headphones with any order I made that day. And… yes… we will be giving the headphones I got away in the near future!) If I look at the way Judie, Mike and I each protect our iPad minis I see three very different approaches. Judie doesn’t mind adding some weight and bulk to her iPad mini so long at the case she uses screams quality. That’s why she is happily using the Orbino miniPadova she purchased a few…
Judie: As is often the case, both of us ordered the new iPad mini the day it became available. Truth be told, neither of us expected that much from the device. Sure, we expected it would be nice to have the smaller and lighter iPad we had longed for, but we never expected what happened next. We didn’t just like the iPad mini, we both loved it — within short order it replaced our larger iPads. Dan: It took about a day before the iPad mini became my primary iPad. While I enjoy the 9.7″ iPad with retina display, it stays…
