We’re fans of any device that lets us do our work in pretty much any location, and being that you can actually do work on a tablet, that now includes the small touchscreen slates. Logitech plans to make it easier than ever, improving on a tiny touchscreen keyboard with a tiny physical one.
Built into one of those magnetic covers, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini is a more compact version of its big brother made for the regular 9.7 inch iPad.
Like that model, Logitech is keeping the aluminium cover with magnets on the hinge, and using a smaller bluetooth EasyType keyboard to offer as much functionality from the keyboard as possible inside the smaller space offered here.
“We are excited to bring the award-winning Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover design – recognised across the industry as the best mobile keyboard for iPad – to the iPad mini,” said Logitech’s Alexis Richard, Director of Brand Development for Tablet Accessories.
“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.”
Logitech has let us know that the keyboard backs in a three month battery (provided you only use it two hours per day) and is recharged by the industry standard of microUSB.
Pricing for the micro keyboard is set at $89.95 RRP, and it should be available in stores across the country within the next few weeks.
