A short review of my new Belkin keyboard case – and why I love it so much.
After many visits to my local apple store to
play with seriously research the new iPad Pro, with its fancy soft-touch smart keyboard that was such a joy to type on – I decided it would be a worthwhile investment in my work and my writing and I should definitely get one.
But I kept thinking how I had a perfectly fine iPad Air 2 that did pretty much everything I need and was light and portable enough for me to enjoy my beloved garden writing sessions...
Eventually, it dawned on me that all I was really craving was the keyboard case!
So why not, I wondered, see if I could get myself a nice keyboard case for the iPad I’ve already got and save myself hundreds of pounds?!
After lots of research online, I finally chose the Belkin Qode Ultimate.
I opted for this one because I’ve had Belkin products before and I know they’re well-made. They also have excellent Customer Service, which I really value.
I also liked the look of it. Aesthetics are also vitally important, especially in a device I’ll use daily.
So, I ordered it and waited, hoping and hoping that it would be as lovely to type on as the one I’d been playing with in the apple store…
I was not disappointed. In fact, I think I prefer this one.
I love it. It has transformed my writing life and how I use my iPad.
Win #1: I write more often and more easily – no more lugging bulky laptops and cables into the garden.
Win #2: I spend less time at my desk, which was one on my recent health goals.
Win #3: It does an excellent job of protecting my ipad and screen. (I tend to take it everywhere.)
It also has a really long battery life – you can find all the full techy-specs here, if that’s your thing.
So, if you’re looking for an iPad keyboard cover, I would definitely recommend Belkin in general and this case in particular.
