Keyboards are great for iPad

I would highly suggest that anyone looking to get a case for your new iPad should take a look at one with a keyboard. It lets you type on your iPad as if it were a laptop, all while protecting your iPad when it's not in use. Apple's Smart Keyboard is a simple option that offers both light protection and a sleek look.

Of course, if you don't like keyboard cases, and just want something that will cover up your iPad while you're carrying it around, the MoKo Smart Shell is simple and effective. It has the auto sleep/wake feature of the iPad screen, so you don't have to worry about the screen once you close it. Plus, unlike Apple's Smart Cover, it actually covers the back of the iPad too.
