For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Brydge to give away five Brydge keyboards for the iPad Air, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 1/2/3. Brydge's line of keyboards are some of the best available, made from high-quality materials with a comfortable, MacBook Pro-style key feel.

Brydge keyboards, which will turn your iPad into a mini MacBook, are all designed from aluminum to match the style of Apple's tablets and are available in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold.

Unlike some other keyboards, Brydge's products connect to an iPad using two silicone-lined tabs, with no back case included. This helps keep weight down while still providing protection for the iPad's screen when closed. Weight for the smaller keyboard is at .66 pounds while the larger keyboard weighs 1.15 pounds.

The 180-degree hinge on Brydge's keyboards allow them to be adjusted into multiple viewing angles and both of the models included in the giveaway, the BrydgeAir and the BrydgeMini, have backlit keys for use in low-light conditions. The larger BrydgeAir model for the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 also includes a built-in Bluetooth speaker for improved audio.

Brydge's keyboards receive largely positive reviews for their build quality, key feel, and feature set, and when we reviewed the BrydgeAir, we found it to be one of the best iPad keyboards we've used. The BrydgeAir for iPad Air and iPad Air 2 is priced at $149.99 and the BrydgeMini for the iPad mini 1, 2, and 3 is priced at $129.99, but five MacRumors readers will be able to get the Brydge keyboard of their choosing at no cost.

To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize.

we've teamed up with Brydge Keyboards to give five MacRumors winners a chance to win a new Brydge keyboard
Technically, you're giving anyone who cares to enter a chance to win - of which five will see their dreams of winning come true. To do it as stated, you'd have to close entries after the first five responses, and then give some or all of those folks keyboards. :rolleyes:

Whatever you did... didn't fix it. You need to say "to give MacRumors readers chance to win a new Brydge keyboard". "Winners" don't get a chance to win; by definition, winners already have won it... that's what makes them winners.

Maybe he's saying if you win, you'll be placed in another drawing for a chance to win a keyboard...so all you really win from macrumors is another chance! Makes perfect sense.

P.S. I'm being facetious, of course.

What's the latest ETA about the BrydgePro model for the iPad Pro? I'd pre-ordered multiple units in different colors.

Also when will Brydge offer a back shell case for the iPad Pro, which is compatible with the BrydgePro?

Yes, I did miss changing that word. I've now rewritten the entire paragraph so it does not mention winners or readers at all. With any luck, that'll let the comments focus on something other than the wording of the first sentence.

I don't enter every one of the contests, only the ones where I actually want the prize. I wonder how many others are the same, or do some people enter them all just for the thrill?

Two things:

1) Adding a keyboard to an ipad doesnt make it a 'mini macbook'. OsX and a mouse would do that.

2) Contact hinges like this always seem like an inevitable fail to me. It'll be the first thing to fail and then the keyboard of your stupid little 'mini macbook' will never attach.
