Padbook holds iPad + Apple Bluetooth Keyboard


Pianomedia has introduced its Padbook case for the Apple iPad. The Padbook is a folio-style case featuring two changeable surfaces, elastic holders on the corners, a fold-out stand, a loop closure, and a dedicated space for the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard. Available in three colors, Pianomedia’s Padbook case for the Apple iPad sells for $35 and up.

I bought the inCase Travel Kit Plus for the iPad, which has a pocket that easily fits the bluetooth wireless keyboard, and comes with a plastic stand that has two different slots you can set the iPad in - one standing up, and one leaning back a bit. But the case is bulky (as it holds more wires and chargers, etc) and not for everyday use.

I like the idea of the Pianomedia Padbook, but not the looks of it. It reminds me of one of those elastic-strap wallets; a cute idea, but a bit flimsy and I worry that things will fall out.

The other concern is that the keys on the keyboard will get pushed when they’re not supposed to, causing the iPad to turn itself on at the wrong time, wasting battery or perhaps causing bad input.

I guess the answer there is to always be diligent and turn the keyboard off every time you close the case. Seems like a simple detail, but you have to hold the button down for a few seconds before it’ll shut off, which could get tiresome.
