I found this deal online: http://www.zagg.com/j/promo/zfolio_freeprods/freebuds.php?gclid=CO-e5fC67K8CFQgD QAodrlh31w
In this deal, If I purchase an iPad 2 zagg keyboard case ($99) I get a free pair of zagg smart buds ($50). My current skullcrushers are nearly broken, as skullcandy is all for the design, not quality. I am very interested in receiving these in ear headphones. But I have an iPad 3, and I can't use this exact same deal if I buy an iPad 3 zagg folio. I have tried. After looking at the specs of each keyboard, I found that each Folio (iPad 3 and iPad 2) have the exact same specs:

 

iPad 3 folio specs:

  • Weight: 19 ounces (539 grams)
  • Keyboard only: 11.5 ounces (326 grams)
  • Folio only: 7.5 ounces (213 grams)
  • Length: 9.75 inches (247 mm)
  • Width: 7.625 inches (193 mm)
  • Depth: .9 inches (23 mm)

iPad 2 folio specs:

  • Weight: 19 ounces (539 grams)
  • Keyboard only: 11.5 ounces (326 grams)
  • Folio only: 7.5 ounces (213 grams)
  • Length: 9.75 inches (247 mm)
  • Width: 7.625 inches (193 mm)
  • Depth: .9 inches (23 mm)

 

I know for a fact that the iPad 3 is .6mm thicker then its prediccessor, and I compared my iPad 3 to my fathers iPad 2, and saw little tiny difference. It was litteraly the difference of the length of how much the glass pops out of an idevice if you look at it horizontaly.

 

The folios also have this in the specs section:

 

iPad 3 Folio:

COMPATABILITY
  • Works with Apple iPad 3 (3rd gen)

 

iPad 2 Folio:

COMPATABILITY
  • Works with Apple iPad 2

 

I know that the bluetooth technoledgy is the same on each device, both software and hardware versions.

I also know that online on stores such as Walmart, Bestbuy,  Ebay, and Amazon all sell the Zagg Folio but they are marked as *For iPad 2 and iPad 3.

After doing a mock purchase, they do not ask you if you have an iPad 3 or 2. Meaning that they are in fact the same size?

 

Remember that I want to buy an iPad 2 folio for my iPad 3 because of the free $50 zagg buds that come with them at:
