ZAGGmate offers protection and practicality

It is made from aircraft-grade aluminum giving the case strong protection, but it also incorporates a Bluetooth QWERTY keyboard for enhancing productivity on the go. The iPad can be pitched horizontally or vertically and in up to ten different viewing angles.
The case with keyboard weighs in at 12.8 ounces. It comes with a microUSB cable for charging the keyboard's 510mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery, which will last for "several weeks of normal use" between charges.
The device is listed on the Zagg site as coming soon for $100. A non-keyboard version offering screen protection only will also available for $70. A video of the device in action is included below.
