For some time now you have been able to get the Logitech Ultrathin iPad keyboard cover for the iPad, but now the company has announced the iPad mini version, which we have to say is an elegant cover for Apple’s tablet. However, we do have a small concern over the price, which we will look at in a bit.
The Logitech Ultrathin iPad mini keyboard cover is just like the full size version, so it’s not only a keyboard but also a protective case and stand as well. While it is very light and trendy, we don’t think it looks as funky as Microsoft’s Surface Pro with the clip on keyboard, although Microsoft are trying to gain the attention of the younger audience — just as Apple did with the iPod many years ago.
Through the use of Bluetooth the keyboard/case will pair with your iPad mini and then allow you to use the standard size keyboard and layout in order to go about your daily business. The third-party accessory certainly helps to improve productivity with its short commands.
Looking at the video, thanks to Logitech Blog, you can see just how quickly you can attach and detach the Ultrathin keyboard cover for the iPad mini, but we have to wonder if you will still be interested knowing that you’ll have to part with $79.99 in the US and £59.99 in the UK?
For some iPad mini owners they would much prefer to pay $50 less and go with the Moko Smart Type Cover instead, although it does have an unusual key layout. Having said that, I find that I can type just fine with the touchscreen on the iPad because it just takes practice.
