    I have an Apple bluetooth keyboard that came with the iMac, but it's been sitting unused since we are using a full-sized USB keyboard with the iMac. I plan to use this bluetooth keyboard with my iPad when it comes. I already have a few bags that are the right size to hold the iPad and the keyboard, but I want a sleeve for the keyboard so it doesn't bump with the iPad. (I don't want a sleeve for the iPad, as I'd like to be able to just slip it out of the bag to use.) Has anybody seen any sleeves for the keyboard?

    YES! :) - Waterfield Design makes a great case for the keyboards - - I've got the case for the current keyboard and the old plastic BT keyboard - they are both fantastic and top rate - highly recommended.

    I buy all my cases and bags there if they make something that fits my needs.

    I like those SF cases though I'm not excited about another 5-7 ounces of weight. i wonder...with the BT keyboard really need a case? Honest question.

    Other than the aluminum getting a little scratched and possible nicked, what other damage might come from tossing it into say a messenger bag otherwise unprotected?

    I'm not worried about the keyboard getting damaged, I don't want the keyboard to scratch up the iPad!

    I'm also just a bit paranoid about the keys catching against other stuff in my bag -- I'll also have my wallet, eyeglass case, documents with staples and paper clips on them, etc. in my bag.

    Hmmmm, reading that, maybe what I need is a three compoent bag? :D

    Consider wrapping a piece of stiff cardboard with a little padding, then slipping it between the keyboard and iPad. Use any case you want that has room for both.

    Yeah - my iPad will be in its own sleeve, a standalone model to start, and ultimately probably one built into a bag I get down the road. So the iPad itself will have its own protection from the keyboard and everything else.

    Then, just slip the keyboard into a separate pocket...

    Oops - meant to multi-quote Night Springs comment saying he was worried about damaging the iPad moreso than the keyboard...

    Bit late to the party, but thank you for the suggestion. Been looking for a sleeve for my keyboard and came across this thread. Worth the bump for anyone else interested...

    Now this is a nice case! Looking to use it with my HP TouchPad BT keyboard as the specs seem pretty darn close to Apple's keyboard. Came across this thread and thought I would update it with this link. :D

    I have a friend who keeps his BT keyboard in the box when she is on the move and it looks a bit awkward since the box is pretty beaten up. I might have to pick one up for her but that means we would have to stop making fun of her :p

    For anyone who is still looking, I have to go with WaterField too.

    incase origami workstation. very compact, low-profile, inexpensive, and perfect for a road warrior. all of it fits comfortably into a man purse, and because it is separate from the ipad, you can always pull out the ipad and use it as an ereader alone. it is the perfect accessory :)

    This is one of the most brilliant accessories I've bought for the iPad. I had a $10 or so sleeve I bought for the keyboard from eBay last year, but the Origami enhances the usability of both iPad and keyboard together. Well worth the $30 price tag at BestBuy.

    Another vote for the Origami workstation. I just used mine this morning. You can use with your ipad in a case (or not) and it's been one of the best accessories I've ever purchased. Big thumbs up!
