I recently got my hands on a New Trent IMP38B Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard and Case and put it through it’s paces for a few days. This is one sturdy keyboard case and fits snugly over your iPad 2 keeping it locked in and protected. The metal case is durable and should protect your iPad 2 screen very well from any potential bangs or dings on the front.
The case also serves as a full Wireless Bluetooth keyboard where you just simply rest your iPad 2 inside the slot in landscape mode, turn on the keyboard and pair it in seconds with your iPad 2. The keyboard has iPad 2 specific keys to go into photo, show virtual keyboard (not sure why that is needed), adjust music volumes, as well as navigate with the command key.
The keyboard keys are solid and feel natural when pressing on them, the response time is also very quick and you can type pretty fast once your hands get used to the smaller keyboard layout.
That would be the only negative about this device is that they keyboard is a little small for those with larger hands, I would think the keyboard was more designed for women’s hands which are more slender and my man hands felt a little big being a touch typist. That being said it didn’t take more than 10 minutes to get used to and I can time so much faster on this keyboard than on the touchscreen keyboard the iPad 2 has by default.
