With the iPad Mini becoming more prevalent, I thought I would revisit iPad keyboard options. The following ZDNet article by Jame Kendrick covers some of the more popular models. I’ve also included some iPad Keyboards under “Links” in the left-hand column.
9 good keyboards for the iPad (March 2013), including bonus iPad mini model
It seems there is a keyboard released for the iPad every few weeks, and figuring out which one might work best is almost as hard as finding a good app in the App Store.
This collection of iPad keyboards is unique in that with the exception of one, they all have been used by me. I own all of them, except two that were supplied for evaluation by the manufacturer. I have used all but one of these keyboards extensively in my work, and I have a good feel for which ones are best for me.
All of the keyboards in this collection are shown closed for thinness and open for business. With the one exception mentioned, all of the keyboards charge via microUSB and will last for months on a charge. A microUSB to USB charging cable is included with these keyboards. They all connect to the iPad via Bluetooth.
In addition to the eight good iPad keyboards, there is a bonus for iPad mini owners. Three keyboards for the iPad mini are also covered in this collection.
