So there you have one possibility which is to buy a case that comes with a keyboard, but if you have an Apple Bluetooth keyboard already, you might like to look to see if you can find an iPad case or an iPad keyboard carrying case specifically for that keyboard. Clamcase iPad keyboard case When you buy a case for a keyboard, you want it so that the tech is protected and also that the keyboard doesn’t scratch the iPad in transit and it is a good idea if it is a case that doesn’t allow the keyboard to turn itself on while travelling.

Another possibility is a ZaggMate iPad keyboard case product called the ClamCase, which kind of turns your iPad into a small laptop or a netbook. The ClamCase is in two parts and the bottom part of it has all of the electronic bits of the keyboard. In the top part you can clip your iPad. There is a hinge which connects the two parts of the case into something that looks like a netbook.

A good thing about using a keyboard that is specially made for the iPod rather than the Apple Bluetooth keyboard is that it will come with a row of convenience keys above the numbers. This will add some useful features. There will be a home key, lock and search keys as well as volume controls, play, pause and fast forward.

I’m not sure how well and keyboard and iPad configurations like this would work because you are going to be constantly lifting your fingers from the keyboard to touch the screen to do things. There are some keys on the keyboard that will do things so you don’t have to touch the screen, Zaggmate keyboard case

Do you really need an ipad case with keyboard?

Quite a lot of people when they see these keyboard cases wonder what is the point of it all. If you have a computer bag that is big enough you can just carry a Apple Bluetooth keyboard if you have a lot of typing to do.The iPad is supposed to be used by touching the on-screen keyboard and be minimalist in terms of you not really needing anything else.

What is your preference? Can you type fast enough on the onscreen keyboard? Will you buy an ipad keyboard case or an iPad case keyboard?
