iPad Compatibility iPad 1 (original iPad) iPad 2 iPad 3 (the New iPad) iPad 4 (iPad with Retina Display) NO YES Increase your productivity with your Apple iPad 2 New iPad (aka iPad 3) or iPad With Retina Display (aka iPad 4) with this Keyboard Folio from Monoprice! While the virtual keyboard on tablets is good enough for entering a small amount of text or data it just cannot match the typing speed and sheer quantity of work you can get done with a physical keyboard. This folio case turns your iPad into a laptop computer workstation. The folio features a stand function which holds your iPad in a position similar to that of a laptop computer screen. The built-in Bluetooth keyboard uses the industry leading Broadcom 20730 Bluetooth chipset. When paired with the iPad it allows you to type and enter data with greater ease and speed! The keyboard uses standard "dome" contacts but with scissor-type mechanical keys. The keys require an actuation force of about 60 grams plus or minus 10 grams and have an expected life cycle of more than 10 million key presses. The keyboard has its own internal rechargeable battery so it won't reduce the battery life of your iPad. The lithium-ion battery will provide up to 120 hours of continuous operation and up to 300 days of standby time. The battery has a charge cycle lifetime of 300 charges and takes about 3-4 hours for a full charge. iPad not included!
