This white QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case from Belkin provides an iPad Air 2 with a physical Bluetooth keyboard suitable for comfortable, long-duration typing. Tablet users accustomed to working on a laptop, as well as those who do not wish to have any part of their iPad's screen taken up by a virtual keyboard can also appreciate this keyboard case's well-spaced and responsive keys. Fast and accurate typing is also promoted by the keyboard design. MacBook and notebook PC users can feel particularly at home with this keyboard case as it contains the same number of keys as a laptop and features three brightness levels which can be set according to various low-light conditions.
Built-in magnets secure your tablet into one of two selectable viewing angles so that your iPad's screen is well positioned relative to where you are working while on the go. Both landscape and portrait modes are supported by the keyboard's magnetic hinge that allows for instant repositioning of your tablet's orientation. When you wish to interact directly with your iPad's screen or handhold your tablet, the integrated standalone case that holds the iPad against the keyboard's magnetic hinge can be instantly detached along with a tablet inside. The standalone case is compatible with Apple iPad Smart Covers, so an iPad Air 2 can always be afforded dual-sided protection particularly when being handheld. Whether handheld or connected to the keyboard, the standalone case directs sounds generated by the iPad toward the front of the screen so that audio from the tablet's speakers is improved. When you wish to resume using your iPad on the keyboard, the magnetic elements in the standalone case and the keyboard allow it to be reattached just as quickly.
Up to two Bluetooth 4.0 devices can be paired to this keyboard case at the same time, with one-button control provided to select between them. This is particularly useful when typing a document on a tablet and collaborating with a colleague through text messaging. If you cannot or do not wish to hide your document in order to switch to a messaging app on your tablet, but want to continue typing on the physical keyboard and your smartphone is paired as well, you can instantly switch keyboard inputs to the smartphone, create and send a text, then switch back to the tablet.
When you are not using your iPad, the keyboard case can be closed over the standalone case. Rubber feet along the case prevent the keyboard from touching the iPad's screen. Anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum alloy is used for durable screen protection. The thin profile of your iPad Air 2 is preserved along with access to all tablet buttons, ports, and cameras.
The QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 includes automatic on and off switching by sensing the weight of a tablet that is attached to it. Folding the fabric and magnetic flaps all the way to the rear of the keyboard, also signals the keyboard to turn on. This feature allows for Bluetooth pairing even when a tablet is not resting on the keyboard. These automatic and manual power management features contribute to the keyboard case's battery being able to last for up to one year before it needs to be recharged. The battery is built-in and is not user-replaceable.
"The best...I love it...The keyboard has a great tactile feel, lights up in the dark, supports cmd, fn and ctrl key combos, and you can see them easily by just holding down the cmd key, where a pop-up window shows the shortcuts applicable to the particular app you are working in....I've tried syncing my Samsung Note 3 to the keyboard as well, and was able to switch between the two easily for a few minutes, but lost connectivity to the phone."
