Tablets make for great media, gaming and web browsing devices, but if you want to be truly productive on them and maybe even ditch your laptop then you’re going to need a keyboard. You’re in luck there as there are a variety available for most of the more popular slates and we’ve picked out some of the best for the iPad Air 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab S and iPad mini 3.
The iPad Air 2 is surely the most popular tablet on the market and as such there are a wide variety of cases and other accessories for it. But to help you filter the good ones here are two of the best.
JETech Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Case
Retailing for around £27, the JETech Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Case is one of the more affordable options, but it’s still surprisingly high quality.
Unlike many keyboards it includes a full hard clamshell case, to keep your tablet protected while still providing access to all ports and buttons.
It’s low-profile so it won’t add too much extra thickness to your iPad Air 2 and it’s easy to use, as it automatically connects once it’s been paired via Bluetooth.
Its rechargeable battery can keep on going for up to 60 hours of active use and a power saving mode kicks in after 10 minutes of inactivity, so you’ll rarely have to charge it.
The case is also adjustable, allowing you to use your iPad in vertical or horizontal orientations and it will automatically sleep and wake your tablet when you open and close it.

Logitech Ultrathin Magnetic Clip On Keyboard
At around £85 the Logitech Ultrathin Magnetic Clip On Keyboard is a premium proposition, but it justifies its price tag.
For one thing its super slim 6.4mm thick build and aluminium finish ensures your iPad looks just as good with the keyboard as without. It also has an amazing two year battery life, automatically sleeps and wakes your iPad as you open and close it and clips on magnetically.
None of this would matter if the keyboard itself wasn’t good, but with well-spaced keys, iOS shortcuts and a smart hinge so you can use it at any angle it comes very close to matching a laptop.

While Android tablets rarely match the popularity of Apple’s slates there are still some seriously impressive options around, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, which combines a whole lot of power with a bright, vivid and sharp screen. Add a keyboard into the mix and you’ll really get the most out of it.
Samsung Bluetooth Keyboard
Who better to make a keyboard for a Samsung slate than Samsung itself? The Samsung Bluetooth Keyboard sports a seamless design that looks like an extension of the Galaxy Tab S itself and it helps keep your slate protected when not in use.
Well-spaced ergonomically designed keys and a Galaxy/Android hotkey also make it easy and comfortable to use, giving you a laptop-like experience. It’s not cheap though at around £80.

Logitech Type-S Keyboard Protective Case
The Logitech Type-S Keyboard Case is a premium product with a thin and light design that still keeps both sides of your tablet protected from bumps, scratches and spills.
Android shortcuts, well-spaced keys and versatile viewing angles make it a joy to use, while its battery can keep it going for up to three months on a single charge and its auto wake and sleep function ensures the screen is on when you need it and off when you don’t. You can pick one up from around £85.
The iPad mini 3 isn’t as good for typing on as the larger iPad Air 2, but it’s still just about big enough and far more portable. There are also quite a few keyboard available for it and these are two of the best.
Snugg Rotatable Keyboard Case
The Snugg Rotatable Keyboard Case for the iPad mini 3 is slim and lightweight, yet it’s a full case, keeping your compact tablet safe from scratches and falls.
You can easily pair it via Bluetooth and with shortcut keys and a home button (to quickly return to the home screen) it’s convenient to use, even if it’s inevitably a bit more cramped than larger iPad Air 2 keyboards would be.
It also has a 360 degree rotating stand, so you can use it with your iPad mini 3 at almost any angle. It’s not the most stylish case around, but with useful features, full device protection and a price of just £35 it’s an excellent option.

Boriyuan Golden Leather Case
If style is something you’re after though the Boriyuan Golden Leather Case could be for you. As the name suggests it’s a leather case with a golden finish, for a premium eye-catching look.
But of course it’s a keyboard as well, so you can type away on your iPad mini 3 with it and when you’re not using the keyboard you can fold it into a viewing stand for hands-free viewing of videos. It’s surprisingly cheap too at just around £20.
