Since the tablet PC is gaining popularity nowadays, manufacturers of peripherals and accessories are also quick to cash in on this phenomenon. While manufacturers of these tablet PCs like Apple, Samsung, and Asus either make their own accessories or have collaborations with other companies for their ‘official’ accessory lines, there are companies dedicated to only manufacturing accessories for particular tablet PCs. Although most of them are not officially affiliated with the tablet manufacturers because the latter already have their partners, most of them have arrangements, allowing them to continue manufacturing tablet PC accessories.
For the budget conscious, there is no need to sell iPad for these accessories because some are actually affordable. But of course, if you want quality, then you must be willing to spend a few extra dollars. Accessory manufacturers claim their accessories are all worth it because they enhance the user’s experience with their tablets, letting them make the most out of them. Moreover, some of these accessories help users protect their device.
ZAGG is one of the more well-known brands for iPad accessories in the market. The products from this manufacturer are considered a bit pricey, but worth the price. The company joined the IFA 2012 last week to introduce its most recent accessories, to be available soon. There were a number of products the company launched, including ZAGGkeys Pro, ZAGGkeys Pro Plus, and some iPad keyboards and gaming accessories like headsets. The quality and style of these accessories has made a lot of people exchange cash for iPad accessories.
The ZAGGkeys Pro and ZAGGkeys Pro Plus are the company’s new products utilizing an innovative magnetic closure that secures an iPad and protects it from being bumped, scratched, and smudged. The keyboard layout for these covers is compact and provides a natural typing experience. It even has dedicated keys to operate specific iPad functions. The Pro Plus version has a backlighting feature for the keyboard that eliminates the need for another lighting source when using it in dark areas. Prices for the said items are pegged at $99 for the ZAGGkeys Pro and $129 for the Pro Plus. These items will be available for purchase on the company’s website, ZAGG.com and by selected retailers by the end of September.
These products can be deemed useful if you use your iPad primarily for document encoding. After all, even long-time iPad users admit that having an external dedicated keyboard is more convenient than tapping on the onscreen keyboard that the iPad has when it comes to composing text-heavy documents. However, the price may take you back because you can get a similar product at a lower cost. For example, Apple’s own wireless keyboard retails for only $69. Another popular option, the Belkin Keyboard Folio can be bought for $99.99. This makes the ZAGGkeys Pro Plus as pricey as the Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard, which is a full keyboard. But given the track record of ZAGG, the quality will definitely be top of the line. You will certainly sell old iPad to get these accessories.
