    Do you think the smart cover is the best case for ipad 2?

    I have a smart cover and a zaggmate. I use the smart cover when I don't need to type and want to be as lightweight as possible. Get a skin from gelaskins to cover the back.

    Best iPad 2 case with keyboard

    The zaggmate is slightly smaller than dell mini 10 keyboard. You can easily get used to it and touch-type but is cramped. I don't mess up often and don't tire on 2-3 page docs. Might tire after more. -- Sent from my Palm Pre using Forums

    Jump desktop is a bit pricy ($20), but it's vnc/rdp was plug & play with 4 computers, even on the corporate network. Intuitive controls. As a bonus, it has a free desktop to desktop viewer that comes in the desktop software. Use it to use my home computer to log into work. Recommended by my...

    [Personal] Review of ZAGGmate (Bluetooth Keyboard/Case)

    Get a zaggskin and some elastic straps and you've solved the problems. I can put the ipad in back first and secure it with 3in of strap. I usually just separate the two and use a helostrap to hold the ipad. It also sits well at an angle on the stand in the case like with the folded...

    Keyboard and case for ipad 2

    Get a skin for the iPad and solve one problem. I have a custom skin with company logo and phone number to return iPad. Stable on my lap on the train although it doesn't look like it would be. -- Sent from my Palm Pre using Forums

    [Personal] Review of ZAGGmate (Bluetooth Keyboard/Case)

    Been away for awhile back to write my review of the keyboard. The good Feel is far superior to rubberized keys Touch-typing is pretty easy after a brief learning curve iOS specific buttons at top are good once you learn to use them Case aspect is AWESOME. With my little clear 'feet' at the...

    So how much did everyone else spend on their ipad accesories

    Not including apps, I spend a good deal on my setup and I'm quite happy: Zaggmate for iPad2 - $100 + free Zaggbuds because they were late with shipping Gelaskins skin for iPad2 - doesn't work perfectly with Zaggmate, but nothing a razor can't fix - $30 Smartcover - $40 Helostrap - $20 VGA...

    picked up xoom to compare with my ipad 2.....Fail!

    As someone who ordered the iPad2, I'm getting more and more frustrated at how Android has more flexibility because of Apple's policies. I knew this came with the territory, but it still sucks. For example, Touchdown for Android won't get ported to iOS because the developers says Apple has...

    Need help deciding what to buy

    Totally depends on usage. If you need cameras, GPU speed, or latest OS tweaks, go iPad2. If large music, video library and willing to jailbreak, go iPad1. I don't keep my full library on iPad, so 16GB is plenty. Maybe ask how much memory people use. BTW, cloud music is coming. -- Sent from...

    [Personal] Review of ZAGGmate (Bluetooth Keyboard/Case)

    Hurray!! It's here!!! :D The Logitech Keyboard Case by Zagg that is. It's beautiful. I have typed on it for a few minutes and it's only slightly smaller than my Dell netbook keyboard was. Not ideal, but fine for touch-typing. The combo with the iPad 2 will be so portable it's amazing. Of...

    UPS says mine is scheduled for delivery Tue April 12th. Of course, my iPad2 is not scheduled for delivery until April 21st so I'll be waiting either way.

    Skinit Skin for iPad 2??

    The skinit coverage looks pretty identical to Gelaskins. I'll take a look at the Zaggskin which will have to fit in the Zaggmate.

    Magnetic iPad 2 Car mount

    Let us know how it holds up to bumps in the road, etc. I'm thinking something similar, but I will extend some cords or something from the front vents to a magnet I'll fabricate as you've done hear. Nothing gets affixed to the car. Keep up the good work.

    [Personal] Review of ZAGGmate (Bluetooth Keyboard/Case)

    Congrats. You guys should be able to do some cool niche stuff with their distribution capabilities allowing access to much larger markets with narrower product foci. This is going to kill the other keyboards, probably even Apple's. Waiting for mine. Unfortunately, my iPad 2 isn't here yet...

    How many opted for Applecare for their new iPad 2.

    I don't get warranties for things without moving parts. They tend to arrive DOA or not fail for years and years. Washing machine - that's a different story. LED TV - no warranty.

    picked up xoom to compare with my ipad 2.....Fail!

    It's sorta unfair to compare the xoom on an ipadforum. I actually think when Google gets to version 2.0 of their tablet and version 4.3 of Honeycomb, they may be in great shape. They know Honeycomb isn't polished and is competing on features and horsepower. It's PC and Mac all over again...

    Zagg Mate Idea, Issues

    I've seen the new pictures and I'm totally excited. Too bad the arrow keys issue is still there, but I'm stoked to receive mine soon. Looks like a very flexible tool. I called today about a skin or InvisibleShield for the zaggmate for ipad 2 and there's nothing there yet. I guess I'll be...

    If you've got an existing iPad Zagg has a 50% and 75% off sale going on. I'm getting a invisishield for my ancient (2 years old) Palm Pre for $3.75.

    [Personal] Review of ZAGGmate (Bluetooth Keyboard/Case)

    So today was supposed to be the ship date for my Zaggmate. It didn't ship. Curses!! :( But, along with the apologizes was the promise of a free gift for my troubles. I'll let Zagg say what the gift is is he/she chooses, but let's just say, I was appeased.

    Best one-handed case?

    Sleeve 360 looks like a good alternative as it seems to have flexible applications. You have to like the case though. Please do a write-up. When my whole setup arrives (Zaggmate, Gelaskin and iPad2), I'll take some photos and write a review.

    [Personal] Review of ZAGGmate (Bluetooth Keyboard/Case)

    Great news!! I pre-ordered awhile ago. Do I still have to wait until April 15th for shipping. When I ordered, it said March 31st. See if you can get photos that show the improvement listed in your earlier post.

    Best Bluetooth iPad Keyboard for the iPad 2?

    Preorder for Zaggmate already in. A thread around here has the details on the improvements. Got a Gelaskin to protect the back and will probably get an invisibleshield to protect the bottom of the Zaggmate.

    Best one-handed case?

    Got my HeloStrap today. Simple, small, effective. Of course you could make one with a strong sewing machine, velcro, ballistic nylon and thin bungy strap. Didn't want to do that, so I bought this. Best of all, I took off the 'Helostrap' sticker - I hate stickers and logos - yes even little...

    Thanks, especially for 7 & 8. Looking forward to it. Will the invisibleshield for the zaggmate be ready at launch. Not sure how to order that to protect that beautiful aluminum.

    Anyone Use Their iPad At The Office/Work?

    I ordered my iPad 2 through our corporate account with Apple. I justified it primarily for notetaking and quick access to documents in meetings. The few execs that have them literally delegate tasks during meeting and get answers to questions in real time. I had a netbook and was dying with...

    What do you have, white or black.

    I'm not going to tie myself to the white Apple ecosystem. All of my other hardware (computer, stereo, car interior, game console) and just about everything else is black. Frankly, I think the white headphones are way cheesy, but to each his/her own.

    Car Mount

    For better or worse, we Americans have no shame. I will figure out a car mount, but I think I'm going the poor man's route with a vent-based solution. I'll post when I get it done.

    Newbie to Apple - iPad2 drew me over

    I'm one of the many Palm converts who reluctantly left Palm (now HP) because their development timelines were unbearable. I don't think Apple walks on water, but I do appreciate what they've built. I've got an iPad2 on order (32GB wifi) which I plan to split between business and personal...

    [Personal] Review of ZAGGmate (Bluetooth Keyboard/Case)

    Very interesting, but sounds like a custom solution you'd have to make yourself. Also, it sounds like your notepad might come in contact with the iPad screen - not good. I could see the Zaggmate on one side with the iPad face down when not in use and the other side with notepad, stylus and...

    Best one-handed case?

    I'm sure I'll be able to use the HeloStrap to hold the iPad face up in the Zaggmate using the bungi straps. Seems a flexible solution, but not perfect. I'd prefer a separation of the straps that attach to the back and the connection that rotates and attaches to your hand. Then, I can take...
