Back protection compatible?

My question is whether it can accomodate iPad's with the snap on back protectors on them.

Definitely does look good I'll give it that. May be tempted to pick one of these up after I see one in person.

It looks like it should be compatible with snap on cases which are compatible with smart covers. We will see in reviews...

The ilounge article distinctly mentions that it will not. But It should work with my ghost armor on the back....protection against scratches, at least!

That video made me want to buy it. I'm so easy to be persuaded by advertisers.

Friend of mine just bought the zagg case, and there are some remarkable similarities between the two cases, but the Logitech ultrathin looks more appealing to me.

That said, the new Zagg isn't bad at all, nice keyboard itself, and I can see the appeal of it.

http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-new...ver-video/7567 Hands on review isn't helping me fight off the urge to get this thing.

Looks sweet, but don't like that you can't use any cases. Wish iLounge had weighed it--that's my big outstanding question about it.

It is in the place where smart cover goes, so what do you think?

I picked one of these up, and it looks nice with a blue Belkin Snap Shield on the back (white iPad). I went with this one over the Zagg because of the ability to use it in portrait or landscape, and also because the Logitech is slightly less heavy.

The ONE thing I dislike about it is that it doesn't really hold itself closed against the iPad, so it kinda flops around in my bag if I don't wedge it in tightly. I guess I can deal with this, if I'm careful when putting it in my bag.

Can anyone else comment on this, maybe I got a bad unit? Or could the tiny clips holding the Snap Shield on be keeping it from staying closed?

Awesome!!!

Using it right now.

Only gripe, and it's minor, the keyboard layout is a little different from the virtual keyboard on the iPad.

Can anyone report back on what it's like to type on a flat, smooth table-like surface? Does the keyboard tend to stay in one place?

I noticed it doesn't have any rubber feet to keep it from sliding, but perhaps the weight alone is enough.

The back is an aluminum finish similar to the iPad. I could image it can slide around. Might consider going to the Hardware store and get a set of self adhesive rubber feet.

One more gripe, needs Sleep/Wake function.

Isn't that the point of the keyboard?

According to the Logitech site, it has sleep/wake.

I've gotten used to the Layout of the Virtual Keyboard.

Ah!!!! I had the Sleep/Wake function turned off.

have you guys tried capslock key and the "i" key?

after I hit capslock key, everytime i hit the "I" key, it gives me "[ I ] I [ /I ]"

(w/o the space in between the double quotes) i had to put space there to show the text otherwise MR thinks it's BB code and interprets it.

does this happen to you guys?

Yup, it also happens when you type U & B with Caps Lock on.

THAT SCKS OOPS!!! I mean That Sucks!!!

But I think it only happens when entering thread posts.

Just a heads-up for those in the UK, the Logitech site now has these available to order with an 'In stock' status. I've just ordered one, so hopefully will receive it in the next few days.
