I have an iPad 4 and want to get a Logitech keyboard/protective case for it.  I can't find anyone selling them - they all seem to be for the Air and Air 2.  Can anybody enlighten me as to whether these cases (or which cases) are physically compatible with the iPad 4?

Thanks.

No you're out of luck, the cases designed for iPad 2/3/4 are different to the iPad Air, which are different again to the iPad Air 2 cases.
As the iPad 2/3/4 models are no longer available the cases seem to have also disappeared.

I just checked Amazon US and they have them available (and eligible for global shipping, if you don't want to bother with re-shipping). There were plenty of unfamiliar names but they still stock Belkin, Logitech and Targus keyboard cases for the iPad 2/3/4. And that was just the first page of hits.

Another option would be to go with a standard case and get an Apple wireless keyboard. I, er, borrowed one that came with my iMac at work (which I couldn't use at work because I needed a full numerical keypad) and it works great with all my iPads.

Thanks for your comments.  I really like the idea of the protection and the keyboard being all in one.

Try and land yourself a Zagg or Belkin one from Amazon. 

Doesn't take long to arrive and wil inevitably end up around the same price as anything you can get here, even with the rapidly falling NZD and shipping costs. 

I have a Zagg folio keyboard case for my Mini and it's great - like having a mini laptop running iOS
