    I'm looking at buying the Zaggfolio, but I've got a couple of concerns

    How many viewing angles does the case have with the iPad removed? I want to prop the iPad up in bed and watch movies -- 1 angle seems very limiting.

    Does the keyboard touch the Ipad screen? If so, anyone have any bad experiences?


    At this point, it's down to the zaggfolio, kensington keyfolio, or zooglue with apple keyboard.

    For Reference:
    * First iPad (new iPad)
    * I write a lot
    * I hope to utilize it for quick css editing
    * I want to prop it up to watch movies in bed
    * I'll be taking it to work for meeting notes

    I don't need to throw water on the fire of zaggfolio interests but while I was at MacWorld I saw a product called be a Adonit writer pro for the ipad 2 and was quite impressed. Ironically, the zaggfolio was at the booth next door and there was literally nobody at that booth looking at their product while the Adonis booth was packed.

    I preferred the slim profile of the rider pro for the iPad 2 as well as the quality of materials, construction and overall approach they took to solving the problem of having a slim keyboard alongside your iPad.

    I think in the end it comes down to being a matter of taste and preference-however-anyone interested in the zag folio should definitely give the Adobit writer pro for the iPad 2 to a look.

    A NOTE OF CAUTION FOR NEW IPAD 3 OWNERS -- as seems to be the case with many third-party case and cover makers, Adonit has identified issues with sleep wake functionality of their Writer pro when being used on the iPad 3 and are going to come up with a solution and announce it on their support forms.

    Best of luck making the best choice for you.

    Thanks so much for adding Addonit information to one of the many, many ZaggFolio threads. The inline pictures right from their web site is a big help, too.

    Does the Adonit fold all the way back?

    Does the Adonit fold all the way back, or do you have to take the iPad out to use it like a tablet?

    I just got the Zaggfolio at Best Buy and like it, but it is heavy! Hope the Adonit folds all the way back and is lighter. Also, are the keys/keyboard smaller on the Adont Thames the Zaggfolio?
