I’ve had the opportunity to try many keyboard cases for the larger iPads I’ve owned, but I’ve never had hands-on experience with a keyboard case for the iPad mini. Logitech has just announced their Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad mini, and I must say it has me intrigued. Instead of a bulky folio case, their Ultrathin keyboard attaches to the mini with a magnetic hinge and serves as a cover when the mini isn’t in use. It even activates the mini’s automatic wake/sleep functions. When you need to type, you simply detach the Bluetooth keyboard and stand the mini in the keyboard’s built-in stand. Somehow Logitech fits a QWERTY keyboard in only 7.87″ X 5.54″. The cover is 0.29″ thick and weighs 0.48 pounds. It will be available in black or white (and red in some lucky regions) for $79.99. You can pre-order now at Logitech for shipment in February 2013.
