iHome’s Type Pro 360 Swivel iPad 2,3 & 4 keyboard and case.
Pros: Sleek design. Easy Pairing, Great battery life, The swivel function.
Cons: Weight could be an issue. Weight is needed for the way this case/keyboard functions. Thickness might make it harder to use some tablet bags.
During CES I met up with iHome. iHome has a great selection of products of your iDevice. From Docking to blue-tooth speakers, iHome has what you need.
I got the Type Pro 360 Swivel and plugged it in to charge Sadly, I was doing some manual labor in the back yard so I could not start testing it right away.
The iPad fit nicely into the lid, making it one solid unit. Pairing was easy, the Type Pro showed up in blue tooth devices quickly and paired quickly.
In the cons, I said the weight might be an issue for some people. The keyboard weight is needed so the keyboard and case wont tip due to weight of the iPad. The iPad screen can be set to several comfortable angles, so if your at your desk, recliner, in the car, on the airplane, you can find a comfortable viewing angle. Typing on the keyboard felt natural. the function keys like brightness, fast forward, back, pause, stop, and mute are right up at the top. You can even pop the onscreen keyboard with the touch of a button. Using the home key with a double tap will work just like the home button on the iPad.
There are times when you just want the iPad, and this is where the 360 Swivel comes in. The iPad can swivel 360 degrees, putting the back of the iPad to the keyboard. This gives you the tablet with out a keyboard in front of you. The keyboard will serve as a base, once again giving you the perfect viewing angle.
The type pro does ad a bit of bulk. It will be a tight fit for some bags. The whole unit will fit great in most bags though.
Overall, I like this keyboard. It’s made well, looks great, and works flawlessly. Its a perfect office addition. It does really class up my office!
You can find the Type Pro on Amazon and Office Depot for about $99
