NDD: Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio

(NDD is New Doodad Day, btw…)

Another day, another new toy. Today’s is the Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio.

I’ve been thinking more and more about a keyboard for my iPad, and starting to use it more as a mobile communication device, rather than just as an internet consumption device, which has been my primary use for it. Enter the desire for a keyboard. (Note that I didn’t say need!)

Plug it in (to charge it), insert the iPad into the pretty dang secure holder, and it was ready to pair with my iPad. From unviolated box to paired and typing in about 90 seconds. Pretty cool.

I will mention that the keyboard has a funky feel. It’s a covered, slightly membrane-like keyboard, so the keys have a little funkiness to their feel, both from the fabric and from the short throw action. However, it’s definitely better than typing on the glass, and I’m noticing just through typing this up, I’m getting used to the feel a bit.

More to come, I’m sure, as I play with this gadget on a more regular basis!

    As your MIL is not exactly gadget-programed, I have NO idea what you have. As I understand it this keyboard is not a piano keybord, it doesn’t have glass and you can use it ad lib to do….what? The GOOD part is this: If I ever become so endowed I know exactly to whom I send the S.O.S. ! I needed Kevin for the first use of the Jam maker, I was not certain how to push ‘Jam’, ‘Enter.’ As a child I took things apart to know how they worked. More often than not I could put them together again, However, my nick name was, believe it or not, D.D. for Destructive Donna. May I do the same with your keyboard?
