Logitech iPad Folio Review

I was lucky enough to win the Logitech Keyboard Folio from TUAW.  I can’t thank them enough for having the contest and being lucky enough to win it.

I wanted to write up a quick review of the unit for other people that are thinking about getting it.  I am currently using it to type out this blog post on my ipad.  I am finding that I am using my ipad more and more to do different things where I don’t want to carry my laptop.  I have been using an Apple bluetooth keyboard previously and have adapted to that scenario.

I synced my ipad to the Logitech Keyboard Folio and then started to type on it.  Thy typing on this keyboard is a treat to type on.  I found the key response to be great and really enjoy using it.  The biggest issue I had from a typing perspective was the where the 2 key is placed.  I kept hitting the 1 key thinking I was hitting the 2 key.  That seems to be really just an issue because of how much smaller the keyboard is.

I think by far the biggest issue I have with the unit is the weight and the size.  It makes the ipad almost twice as tall and adds just an obscene amount of weight.  For me if I am going to carry around that much weight I would rather take my 15″ MacBook Pro.

These are of course my observations and someone else may have a different opinion, but for me the weight and size of the tech matters to me as I am normally carrying it around on my back and like to travel light/slimmed down.
