    I've been looking around and I'm down to 2 choices.
    Zaggs Key Mini $89.95

    Or the Mini Suit Chrome Keyboard $29.95?


    The Chrome keyboard seems like a better option espesically because of the price, but I also like how easy it is to remove/sync. I also seems very portable. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    looks super sleek and sexy! but i prefer DEEPER KEYS for typing. The price tag is also around the same as the Zagg. I just placed an order for the mini suit keyboard :) hope it lives up to its hype :D

    I bought the MiniSuit in silver for my white and silver iPad mini. After looking at many choices on Amazon, what I liked about the MiniSuit is that it's hinged; makes a sleek cover when it's closed. It's easy to pair, comes with a USB charger. For the money I think it's a good deal. Yes, the keys are tiny, but you most likely aren't going to write a book with it. I plan on using it on trips if I want to do any extended typing.

    I find the keyboard made for the mini to be far to cramped to be useful for typing. the one for the iPad were bad enough, but fitting a full sized keyboard for the size of the mini is just not going to work for me. Yes, it makes for a travel friendly keyboard, but it also makes for a lousy way to work.

    Of course, YMMV. :)

    I tried the Zagg... it has a very unfortunate quirk: It doubles keystrokes so your emails, etc., end up like: Hoow aare yoou? ... I returned it. Now using the Logitech... excellent! I carry it on the Mini in a little bag in my purse. I love it!

    Also consider coverbot. I got it for under $40. I put the mini in it when travelling or days i know I will type a lot. I write a lot and find it to be good.


    Next one i am waiting to try is the Jorno

    Update: I tried the Coverbot. I still prefer the Logitech - better quality and key layout... different strokes... :)

    I personally would not dream of using a keyboard with a mini, nor with my iPad 3 either, for that matter. If I wanted a laptop, I'd have bought one. Wait a minute, I did that. Seriously, the Mini is a little biddy reader that fits comfortably in your purse or jacket pocket. Why make it big? It's value is in it's littleness.

    Personally, I carry it with our without, depending on what I'll be needing to do. Works for me! :)

    I switched to the Zagg Cover for my ipad mini and believe this is the best choice right now

    Do you have any problem with keystrokes doubling letters? I did, when I had a Zagg. The Logitech does not do that on my Mini. Odd!

    I've had constant double-stroke as well as no-stroke key issues since the IOS7 upgrade. Finally broke down and ordered a replacement newer version which Zagg claims is better. Sheesh, not liking this purchase every 1.3 years as soon as the warranty expires :(
