iPad 2 case roundup (photos)
Belkin's Keyboard Folio ($99.99) is one of the best cases with an integrated keyboard. Unlike some models that feature rubber keys, this one has larger TruType keys for what Belkin says is "a comfortable, computer-style typing experience and complements the functionality of the iPad 2 with separate, adjustable modes for viewing and typing." It's also relatively thin and and lightweight.

The good: Despite being a keyboard case, the Belkin Keyboard Folio for iPad 2 can also be used in folio mode without the keyboard getting in the way much, plus the keyboard itself is excellent and responsive.
The bad: The slightly floppy, flappy design might not appeal to some; also, when the iPad 2 is in the case, it's much thicker than a regular case without a keyboard.
The bottom line: The Belkin Keyboard Folio for the iPad 2 is a strangely designed but surprisingly smart keyboard case with a strong keyboard and a flexible set of versatile transforming shapes for everyday use, although you might be annoyed by its thickness.
