Logitech Ultrathin iPad Keyboard Has You Covered

on April 25, 2012 8:00 am

I hate hiding my slim and sleek gadgets in big bulky covers, and while I don’t (and probably never will :)) own an iPad, the new Ultrathin Keyboard Cover which was announced today by Logitech looks the goods.

The cover has an ultrathin alumium screen aligned with iPad’s built in frame magnets and makes use of the iPad’s instant on/off function.  Logitech claims that the Bluetooth wireless keyboard will give you up to 6 months on a full charge (based on 2 hours usage a day), and the built-in stand can be used for typing duties or watching movies.

“The third-generation iPad and its apps are designed to give you more control and creativity, whether you are editing photos and movies, making music or writing a novel,” said Alexis Richard, director of product marketing at Logitech. “The new Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover – with its ultra-sleek, smart design and extended keyboard battery life – provides a convenient way for you to make the most of your iPad no matter what activity you are using it for.”

The cover works with either the iPad 2 or iPad (3rd generation)

Available to preorder from the Logitech store for $99.99 and expected to ship by the end of the month.

    I have been looking at this keyboard for a while now. 4 things to note about this item after all my research:

    1) It is currently the thinnest in its class
    2) The iPad shortcuts (dim screen, volume, etc…) are activated by hitting Fn then the relevant number key.
    3) The keyboard case offers no protection to the back of the iPad so you will probably need something like a neoprene sleeve.
    4) Battery life of keyboard is approx. 6 months with an average usage of 2 hours a day.

    The thinness is great, but it still suffers from the fundamental flaw of being too small.

    We have tried them all, but have finally come to terms that none of them will be satisfactory for extended typing.
