iMage for iPad review

£74 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Ceratech

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The iMage keyboard is designed for the iPad, but also works with the iPhone and Mac.

Typing on the virtual keyboard on an iPad is certainly possible, but sometimes there is nothing quite like the real thing if you need to input large amounts of text. There are many separate keyboards you could use with the iPad including Apple's own, but few offer the compact services of the iMage.

Supplied in a faux leather iPad case, the detachable keyboard is magnetic and docks with the case forming a compact, if rather heavy, form factor. The keyboard itself is well made, but too small for speedy touch typing, and, in fact, too small for anyone with large fingers and hands. We also noticed that the slightly raised battery pack sometimes interfered with the spacebar.

Tablet Advisor

The iMage is pretty versatile. Although the keyboard is made for the iPad, we were also able to pair it with a Mac desktop and an iPhone. After a full battery charge (three hours) you can type for around two days.
