    Just got this keyboard in today, charging up now will hope to get charged and give my impressions hopefully by tonight. At first glance, its a pretty nice looking case, and feels quite nice. Keys are a wee bit cramped but then again I did opt for the 7 and not to full size 9, so I knew it would be. Seems usable though.

    First thoughts.....

    At first the keys seem a little cramped but this s not so hard to get
    used to. I can easily type with minimal mistakes. It has all of the
    appropriate ipad "hot" keys. The only real oddities are that there
    are some items like " and + that you need to hold the shift and fn key
    to type it out. This could slow you down a bit when tap typing. I
    dont find it too cumbersome though, but I could see where some may.

    The enter key is a little small but again, I didnt find it too
    difficult to hit consistently.

    The ipad mini sits recessed inside the case so there is room for the
    keyboard to lay flush. One negative I did find was that when you turn
    the keyboard around like a book the bluetooth connection remains so
    you will undoubtedly hit keys which can get annoying.

    Overall, I think I will keep this keyboard but mainly use it in travel
    situations. One thing others may consider as well is to cut the
    keyboard off from the upper case, as the keyboard is super ultra thin
    and you could effectively use whatever case your mini is in as a

    I got this case for $50 after Zagg's Black Friday sale so well worth
    it in my opinion, $89.99 is probably a bit high. Hope this helps
    anyone mulling decisions. I can't get pics uploaded today, maybe sometime tomorrow....

    I bought one from best buy also but returned it a few days later.....I paid 90$ and was a bit pod that it went on sale but that wasn't the reason I returned it. I just didn't like the bulk it added so I just don't think I would use it. If it was $40 I probably would have kept it for travel.
