Electronics accessories manufacturer Logitech has launched the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini, a slim protective keyboard and cover built for Apple’s 7.9-inch tablet. It has a solid base, meaning it’s very easy to use it both either a desk or your lap.
The cover is built from aluminium, keeping it slim and light, but also durable. It fits onto the iPad mini using a series of integrated magnets, and can be switched on simply by flipping it around to reveal its 'Bluetooth EasyType' keyboard.
The keyboard itself uses a traditional typing layout, with sensible space allocated for each key. Shortcut buttons can be accessed using the Fn button and a corresponding number key found at the top of the keyboard. As an example, Fn+1 will start a Spotlight search, while Fn+2 opens the Safari Internet browser.
The cover is available in black, white and red, and offers a three-month battery life over a range of up to 10 meters. Logitech says it expects the Ultrathin Keyboard mini to be available in the U.S. and Europe from this month, with a suggested retail price of $79.99.
