Logitech introduces ‘Ultrathin Keyboard mini’ for Apple’s iPad mini

Logitech today introduced the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini, a slim protective keyboard cover designed to enhance Apple’s iPad mini. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini helps you make the most of everything you do on your iPad mini – from enjoying apps, movies and photos to giving you a comfortable typing experience – while keeping your tablet’s thin, light and sleek style.

“We are excited to bring the award-winning Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover design – recognized across the industry as the best mobile keyboard for iPad – to the iPad mini,” said Alexis Richard, director of brand development for tablet accessories, in the press release. “Think of it as the other half of your iPad mini. 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.”

Attaching securely with the click of powerful integrated magnets, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini has a slim aluminum cover that matches the iPad mini and brings durable protection to it with minimal weight. When you’re ready to use it, flip the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini around to reveal its built-in Bluetooth EasyType keyboard, offering a traditional typing layout in a small seven-inch form factor, plus iPad mini function shortcut keys for the commands you use most often, such as copy and paste. It also doubles as a hands-free view stand so you can use your iPad mini without having to hold it.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini has an instant On/Off feature, which means your iPad mini automatically wakes up when you open the cover and switches to standby when you close it. The keyboard itself has a three-month battery life (based on usage of two hours per day) so you can spend more time exploring your new tablet and less time worrying about your keyboard losing power.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in February 2013, for a suggested retail price of $79.99.

    1. Some people simply don’t like onscreen keyboards.

      For me it’s because I don’t like the layout and they take up too much of what little screen real estate exists. But… it depends on what I have to do. If it’s just to input a password or a short note, I’ll use it. Otherwise I use the keyboard built into my iPad’s cover.

  1. i have one of these for my iPad. works very well when i need to do more than minimal typing. also works well as a stand when i am not using the keyboard itself. people who have seen it who need something for medium to heavy duty typing have commented favorably on it also.
