    I currently have the Belkin that I bought at the Apple store when I got my iPad. Recently, I've been using my Apple Wireless Keyboard and would like to carry it with my iPad in a case. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    How about - a case that can hold the KB and double up as a (landscape) stand as well, so I can set things up almost like a laptop?

    Cheap solution

    In Australia there are no resellers of this kind of product but I have just worked out that an old Double CD Sleeve, that is a CD Carry Case designed for 2 x 12 CD's fits the wireless keyboard absolutely perfectly. Better still, the case I had, the CD sleve inserts weren't sewn in so they slipped out of the cover. It's a perfect fit and probably only cost $5 too!

    incase travel kit and origami

    I've got the Incase Origami case for the Apple wireless keyboard. Unfortunately as has been reported elsewhere the velcro strips became unglued and I had to return it. Shame because it was a good idea. I am going to purchase the incase Travel kit but I am struggling to find it in the UK at a reasonable cost without huge postage costs.

    Wiijeff I have exactly the same problem - it's the only incase product I can't find in the UK. Did you have any luck?

    Bought it from Pure Mobile who shipped it from Canada. Expensive shipping but the service was excellent. You can track it leaving Canada and arriving in UK . Think it was 47 pounds all in. Took only a two or three days to arrive and works as described. The only issue is that the keyboard switch gets pressed and I need to figure a sleeve to protect the on button from triggering.

    Highly recommended

    Origami keyboard case + drop of super glue = great!

    I am really happy with my Origami keyboard protector which transforms into a super cool iPad holder and makes it my "on the go" computer solution.
    Like others have complained one of the Velcro closers fell off on day one, fortunately I was home packing for a trip and a drop of super glue made more sense than a store return. All has been well for 3 weeks so it works great for me.

    I got the Waterfield Designs cover for my keyboard and another for my track pad, nice quality, reasonable price and very fast shipping.

    I have ordered from them before, a MacAir sleeve and they were just great!

    Even made a suggestion for the sleeve they ultimately incorporated in the design!

    They are a very good small american based manufacturer!

    Perfect!

    You were right about it being the perfect fit! I decided to try the CD case route after purchasing my keyboard and finding this website with this thread.
    I had to pay $8.00 but I got a very nice Case Logic holder that had a stiff cover that will keep my keyboard VERY well protected.

    I suspect that the OP has long since found something to meet their needs, but for anyone who has just come upon this thread, here's what I've learned after a few months of examining various alternatives.

    If you're looking for a combo Apple Wireless Keyboard/iPad case (like the Zaggmate/Logitech with a built-in keyboard) you're out of luck. There are several such combo cases but the Apple Wireless Keyboard is too wide to fit. All such cases have more narrow keyboards with smaller keys.

    You won't find any combo case that accommodates the Apple keyboard because such cases are designed to fit the iPad. A case that accommodates the Apple keyboard as well would have to be at least two inches wider and would appeal to a very limited niche market.

    The Incase Origami Workstation is a great option but it is not a case for the iPad; it's an Apple Wireless Keyboard case that unfolds to provide a stand for the iPad. Works with the original iPad as well as the iPad 2 and accommodates the SmartCover and a back protector case on the iPad very well.

    If you're looking for a "case" (i.e. a "bag") that can accommodate both the iPad and the Apple Wireless Keyboard, there are a number of alternatives.

    Waterfield Design (sfbags.com) makes several bags that are designed with interior pockets to hold the Apple keyboard along with the iPad. (I have the "Travel Express." The iPad "Wallet" is another alternative.) Their bags are very high quality; customer service is excellent. The Travel Express will accommodate the Apple keyboard in the Orgigami Workstation case; the Wallet will not. Waterfield Design also makes sleeves designed specifically for the Apple Wireless Keyboard.

    The Incase Travel Kit Plus is another option but it may be difficult to find. Incase doesn't have it in stock and other resellers (e.g. Best Buy) don't have it in stores. Furthermore I don't believe it accommodates the Incase Origami Workstation. (I may be wrong about that.) And it may not fit the dimensions of the iPad 2 or work with a back case protector.

    A less expensive alternative is any number of small messenger bags. I use a Timbuk2 small messenger bag I originally bought for a netbook. It's interior pocket holds the iPad nicely and there is plenty of room for the keyboard in the Origami Workstation case.

    Wireless Keyboard and case for iPad 2

    Tablets are the hot selling item this year. But now that you have your tablet there are a few accessories you may want to consider also.
    Or maybe you are buying a gift for a tablet owner who is currently crazy about their new little device and you would like to buy them something to go along with it.
    Since tablets are still fairly new there aren't a huge amount of accessories yet to go with them, but there are a few cool items to consider. Check out below what you can buy for your tablet to protect it (cover), provide extra functionality (keyboard), and more.

    I am using origami workstation and very happy with it. I haven't had any issue with velcro yet since it's relatively new still. I will just gorilla glue it once it falls off.

    Neoprene pencil case

    I've been looking for an inexpensive option for a case and finally found exactly what I was looking for. (In Canada) I found a black neoprene pencil case today at the Dollarama for $1.25 and it fits like a glove! It zippers up to keep dirt from getting under your keys as well.

    I have one too. I bought it just to safely transport my keyboard although I didn't have an iPad (reared my 3 now!)

    The velcro was a problem getting caught on my nice sweaters, and the black foam stuff looked gross with prints. So, I made a similar leather one using magnets. :) Much better!

    Great new Kickstarter project: Touchtype case

    There is a great new case for this. :):):) You can get a 25% discount at the moment on Kickstarter. It's a new project and the guy already reached the goal and already has stacks of them in his garage. It is called:

    Touchtype: A Case for iPad and Apple Wireless Keyboard
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sajidcreative/touchtype-a-case-for-ipad-and-apple-wireless-keybo

    I saw in a video review on YouTube that the Origami case can break easily from wear and tear.
