I think the Moshi VersaKeyboard for iPad Air is a pretty good invention and I am surprised not many people thought of it!
It is retailing for S$139 and comes in only one color, Graphite Black. The back shell is made of polycarbonate.
The Moshi VersaKeyboard consists of the Moshi VersaCover Origami Case for iPad Air which I reviewed last month and a detachable ultra-thin Bluetooth keyboard.
So on days you do not need a keyboard for your iPad Air, you could always detach it and leave it at home or in office and that reduces the overall weight. The case and the Bluetooth keyboard weights 380g and when you add in the weight of the iPad Air (Wi-Fi + Cellular), it totals to 858g.
In the pictures below, you will notice that the back of the VersaKeyboard (where it holds the detachable Bluetooth keyboard), there is a special rubber material being used to prevent scratches to your Bluetooth keyboard’s keys.
The Bluetooth keyboard contains full-size keys of a standard keyboard. The tactile feedback of the keys is a little soft for my liking. I think Logitech did a slightly better job with the tacticle feedback of the keys in the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover.
The Bluetooth range is 10m and the battery can last for 130 hours.
