Mimicking the Apple Smart Cover case that puts the iPad to sleep when not in use, the Buddy Case too is fitted with magnets which protect the iPad by putting it to sleep and they additionally can turn it off as a protective measure when it is laid flat against the case.
The Bluetooth keyboard recharges itself through a USB port and has a slot inside to position the iPad in an upright position. The keyboard case is curved to match the iPad 2?s design. There is no word yet of the battery life for this keyboard. It is priced at $50.
