Today’s tech gift is the ZAGGmate iPad case, made with aluminum and padded on the inside to cradle your iPad. The specs say it adds only 1/4″ to the thickness of the iPad yet the aluminum provides excellent protection. Not only does it look elegant, but the Bluetooth keyboard actually looks pretty substantial. It has what it calls an “innovative hinge” to allow you to view and type in portrait and landscape modes. The weight is 7 ounces. The keyboard battery charges via USB and can last a few weeks without a charge. It doesn’t cover the back of the iPad, only the front–check out the videos on the site for a better idea of how it works.
Note: This item is no longer available but Zagg has lots of other great iPad cases and accessories. Check out the Zagg website.
