Keyboards cases for the iPad 2 are all the rage, but they usually force you to take off the Smart Covers we’ve come to know and love. A new model from Logitech, however, allows you to keep the Apple iPad 2’s protection in place by  offering a pull-out keyboard and Smart Cover compatibility.

Looking at the Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard next to the iPad 2, it’s clear to see that this thing is going to easily double the thickness of the tablet.

If you’re fine with that, you’ll find a fold-out keyboard that actually matches the size of the regular Apple keyboards used in desktops, meaning your typing experience doesn’t necessarily change.

We’ll be looking more closely at Logitech’s new case over the next few weeks, but for now, feel free to check out our unboxing.
