Engadget Summary

Belkin's Ultimate Keyboard Case for the iPad is a small, lightweight, portable keyboard that takes on a crowded keyboard market but comes out near the top. CNET calls the design "comforting, as if it promised no-nonsense easy productivity," while TechCrunch says the Ultimate "is not small" but that "it sill manages to be just about as low-profile as the Logitech Ultrathin." When using the keyboard for work, PC Mag says the Ultimate "felt a bit more cramped" when compared with the Logitech Ultrathin, but overall "found it very easy to type quickly and accurately on." CNET had the same experience, saying the "keys are a little closely spaced but all laptop-accurate." Even in the crowded space of portable iPad keyboards, Belkin manages to create a functional keyboard that CNET says "might be the best way to turn your iPad into the closest thing to a laptop alternative."
