What’s more, the keyboard can also be paired with an Apple computer via bluetooth. Price: $69.00

  • 7 ZAGGfolio for the new iPad
    Slide 7

    We’ve heard reports that the ZAGGfolio for iPad 2 will work with the new iPad, but that it’s a tight fit.

Offering a versatile protective and productivity solution in a number of colours, the ZAGGfolio is has been a reliable keyboard case for the last two iterations of Apple’s tablet. Price: $99.99

Best of all, it can also be used with most Macs, Windows PCs, Android tablets and the Blackberry Playbook as well. Price: $99.95

  • 12 Griffin Survivor Military-Duty Case for iPad
    Slide 12
