Kensington Keyfolio Pro
13 December 2011
Summary: If you're in the market for an iPad keyboard case that lets you work in landscape or portrait mode, the $99 Kensington Keyfolio Pro is the one to get. Not only is it attractive, but it's highly functional, too. A few minor tweaks would make it even better, overall this accessory is a very good choice.
Pros: Attractive leather cover, Lets you rotate iPad from portrait to landscape, Dedicated .com button
Cons: iPad sits too vertically, Undersized right Shift key
Excerpt: The big difference here—and the really good one—is the keyboard. Kensington chose to use a hard plastic scissor-key style version here, a vast improvement over the rubber models we’ve seen so many of. From end to end, it’s just a bit longer than the height of the iPad 2, measuring a little over 10”. The keys are smaller than those on Apple’s Wireless Keyboard but have a very similar layout and spacing structure.
Excerpt: Last month, several companies announced their own versions of an OEM-developed physical keyboard and case solution that we were anxious to test and even more hopeful that we’d be able to recommend to our readers. The OEM developed a slim keyboard that matches the iPad’s width and can be built to fit directly within a variety of different flip-style cases while holding Bluetooth 2.0 and battery components inside.
Kensington KeyFolio Wireless Keyboard with Case for the iPad Review
29 October 2010
Excerpt: The Kensington KeyFolio Wireless Keyboard with Case for the Apple iPad is not only a nice protective faux leather case that props the iPad up at a nice viewing angle for typing, but it also has a wireless Bluetooth keyboard built into the case. The result is the user is never without a physical keyboard for data entry on the iPad. First, what is great about this case? It is attractive even if very conservative looking.
Pros: Case feels good, Case looks high-end, Protects iPad well, Function with case, stand and keyboard in one package, Keys are rubberized so they won’t damage display
Cons: keyboard too small, Missing right shift key, Home button is too close to backspace, Touch typists will struggle, Top edge covers half of status bar on iPad iOS
Kensington KeyFolio Bluetooth Keyboard and Case for iPad
1 October 2010
Summary: The idea that you can take just a tablet with you on business trips is an intoxicating one, as it would free up weight and room in your carry-on. The $99 Kensington KeyFolio makes this dream a reality. However, the keyboard's misplaced keys (and missing right Shift key), the inability to use it securely in one's lap, and oversensitivity are real turn-offs. The KeyFolio is certainly better than nothing, but you may want to wait until something better comes along.
Pros: Stylish case, Spill-resistant layout, Easy to pair with iPad
Cons: A bit heavy, Keys are too sensitive, No right Shift key and some misplaced keys, Difficult to use in one's lap
Kensington KeyFolio Pro Performance Keyboard Case for iPad 2
2 November 2011
Excerpt: The Kensington KeyFolio Pro Performance Keyboard Case for iPad 2 Wireless Keyboard is another solution to make typing and working on the iPad and iPad 2 more comfortable. It's a far more successful attempt than the Logitech Fold-up Keyboard for iPad 2 , since not only is the keyboard firm and sturdy, it's also included in a protective folio case that keeps the iPad safe from scratches.
Produkttest: Kensington KeyFolio iPad-Case – Wireless Keyboard und Lederschutzhülle

Conclusion: Das Tippen auf dem Bluetooth-Keyboard fällt auf Dauer leichter als das virtuelle Herumstochern auf dem iPad-Keyboard. Zudem geht’s mit dem KeyFolio schneller! Lediglich habe ich bei der Tastaturbeschriftung das „@“-Zeichen und eine zweite „Shift“-Taste (rechts) vermisst. Darüber tröstet hinweg, dass die Verbindung per „Connect-Button“ hervorragend klappt. Das Power-Management ist zudem vorzüglich und die Lebensdauer des Akkus scheint unerschöpflich.
