It hasn’t taken long at all to see lots of good cases for the iPad Air being announced by leading iPad accessory vendors. Logitech is among the latest to tout their new lineup – with three great looking new keyboard cases for the iPad Air.
For starters, there’s a Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air – extending this line of popular front cover only keyboard cases. These nicely live up to their ultrathin name and look great as an iPad companion. I have reviewed these for the full size iPad and iPad mini in the past. I’m sure these will be popular with iPad Air owners too.
Here’s the details on all three of the new Logitech keyboard cases for the iPad Air:
The Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio combines on-trend design with intelligent technology for thin-and-light protection with added functionality for your iPad. With a variety of colors and refined fabrics, this top-of-the-line folio brings beauty to iPad protection, while its water-repellent coating helps protect the front and back of your iPad Air. Its surprisingly thin built-in Bluetooth keyboard is seamlessly fused into the folio’s interior fabric. The full-size keys – complete with iOS® shortcuts – provide the familiar comfort of a traditional keyboard. The folio’s new SecureLock™ system sports lightweight, low-profile clips that keep the corners of your iPad firmly fastened to the frame, while an easy-release feature makes it easy to insert and remove your iPad. Hidden magnets hold your iPad in two convenient positions for typing or entertainment mode. The keyboard is rechargeable through micro-USB and can last up to three months on a complete charge. The Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio is expected to be available for a suggested retail price of $149.99.
The new Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is the other half of Apple’s newest iPad. It brings the number one selling keyboard for iPad, and award-winning design of the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, to the iPad Air. It provides an aluminum screen cover for added protection on the go, and doubles as a wireless keyboard. The built-in Bluetooth keyboard leverages decades of engineering expertise and research, offering a fast, fluid and comfortable typing experience with the reassuring click of real keys, and the convenience of iOS shortcut keys such as cut, copy and paste. A clever magnetic clip works with the magnets in the iPad frame to securely attach to your tablet, and a magnetic groove located behind the keyboard holds your iPad upright at an ideal angle for both typing and interacting with the touch-screen. The keyboard is rechargeable through micro-USB and can last up to three months on a complete charge. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is expected to be available for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for the iPad Air offers a thin-and-light typing experience, with front and back protection for your iPad. The folio’s integrated Bluetooth keyboard features the same size keys as on traditional keyboards, for a fast and fluid typing experience. A dual-view stand holds your iPad upright for typing or flat for browsing and viewing content, and the SecureLock system helps ensure your iPad stays firmly fastened to the frame without extra bulk or weight. The keyboard is also rechargeable through micro-USB and can last up to three months on a complete charge. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio is expected to be available for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
All three of these should be good options if you’re looking for an iPad Air keyboard case, but I think the FabricSkin keyboard looks particularly nice.
The prices are competitive too. I’ll definitely be looking to try one or more of these out with the iPad Air – and I’m sure we’ll soon see a similar lineup from Logitech for the Retina iPad mini.
