    I'm thinking of getting a Bluetooth keyboard case for the iPad Mini Retina and would appreciate any suggestions for one. Thanks!

    I read a lot of reviews on keyboards and looked at a lot of designs before buying one. Here was what I wanted:
    1. A case that protected the back of the iPad rMini, not just a keyboard.
    2. A lot of adjustment in angle. I did not like the idea of a fixed angle. Smooth adjustment allows control over glare.
    3. Nice typing feel. For this I had to rely on reviews, as you can't find most of these to try out.

    So for me there are really two choices. The Zagg Folio and the ClamCase Pro.

    I went with the ClamCase pro, but the Zagg looks tempting too.
    Pros for ClamCase: Unique hinge design yields more options. Great keyboard feel. Perhaps a slightly more "conventional" key layout than the Zagg.
    Pros for Zagg: Backlit keyboard looks nice. Two colors to choose from.

    Both add about the same weight.

    ClamCase has a coupon at the site, so pricing is about the same. If you want more photos, I posted a few here.

    Edit: Just looking around at reviews of the new Zagg Keyboard Folio for Air and rMini, and a little surprised to see a few reports that the iPad screen actually cracked, perhaps do to the hinge design. Not a lot of reports, but kind of spooky anyway.

    Browsing thru user reviews at Zagg and Amazon.
