Logitech rolls out Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini
Tuesday, February 5, 2013 @ 5:59am

Logitech has revealed its Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad mini. Although designed for the smaller iPad mini, Logitech says that it the keyboard uses full size keys. The cover keeps its weight down, but retains protective strength by utilizing an aluminum panel on its rear.



"Think of it as the other half of your iPad mini,” said Alexis Richard, Logitech’s director of brand development “Its clever seven-inch design fits perfectly with the iPad mini while offering full-size keys for easy typing, saving your screen space for content." Although not a full-size keyboard, it also includes function shortcut keys for often used commands including copy and paste. The keyboard cover also automatically wakes an iPad mini when it is opened and switches to standby when closed. The in-built rechargeable battery is also said to be good for three months of use on a full charge. The Logitech Keyboard Cover for the iPad mini will be available in early February for $80.
