Geeking out on keyboard covers for the iPad

I’m doing this merry go round thing where I’m trying to decide between 3 different keyboard covers for my iPad to sort of give it some Surface creds, making it easier to use as a blogging tool when I’m sipping my java chip frap at Starbucks like the manly studmeister that I am.

The thing that’s making this a harder decision than it should be is that I cover my iPad with a shell (made by Devicewear), while these keyboard covers generally require a naked iPad to fit properly.

I didn’t think I’d be able to find a solution to get around that, until I came across this clever video regarding the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard which shows you how you can still combine the keyboard, smart cover AND shell for a workable solution:

Nice.  The only downside is this is the only popular keyboard cover that doesn’t have a backlight, which I kinda want, mostly because… well I’m snobby and want my backlight.  So  I’m also looking at the ZAGG ZAGGKeys Proplus (they couldn’t come up with a better name?) and the LUVVITT BACKLIT Ultrathin Keyboard.  I haven’t been able to find much evidence on whether they are still useable if you use a protective shell for the back of your iPad, so if anyone ever tried this combo, let me know how it worked out for you.

The LUVVITT does have a stand though, which theoretically might resolve the issue even if the iPad doesn’t neatly fit in the groove, but I haven’t been able to find one at Best Buy to try out yet, so for now it looks like it’ll be the Logitech for me.
