Smartphone Essentials Editor’s Choice Award, July 2011

iLuv are thrilled to receive the Editor’s Choice Award for the iLuv iPad 2 case with Bluetooth Keypad. 

A quick flip of the magnetic clip reveals the inner workings of this unique case, which consists of a Bluetooth keyboard and a leather sleeve for the iPad 2. The sleeve provides a snug fit and even manages to accommodate the original iPad with a little persuasion. The setup offers the user the premise of an instant laptop: it is simply a matter of pairing the Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad 2. The keyboard will need to be charged up for an initial three hours before use, but once that’s done, getting connected is a breeze. The keyboard is securely held in place by a collection of strong magnets. However,  there is the option to detach the keyboard and use it out of the case. The keyboard is effectively full-size and offers a very similar layout to a laptop configuration. The keys are responsive, provide good feedback and are a true alternative to the iPad 2’s on-screen keyboard. This is definitely a winning combination if you like the case’s style.
