The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini is a super slim Bluetooth keyboard and aluminum smart cover for the iPad mini. Logitech describes it as ‘the other half of your iPad mini’.
I did a review last year of its big brother – the Logitech Keyboard Cover for iPad. I was disappointed in that one primarily because the cover would come unattached from the iPad far too easily. I also thought the keyboard was not overly impressive. My understanding is that the flaw in attaching strongly was corrected quickly – as many users who bought one in months after I did reported no problems with that issue.
The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini (which I’m just going to call the Logitech Ultrathin for iPad mini brevity sake from here on) looked very good when I first saw it announced and I ordered one fairy soon afterwards. I’ve had mine for about a month now – and I’m ready to share my thoughts on it.
One of the more notable features for this keyboard cover include its lightweight form factor – it weighs in at just 208g – almost a third less than the iPad mini itself.
Logitech also touts the keyboard as being very effective despite its diminutive size:
Featuring EasyType keys for fast and comfortable typing experience. EasyType keys offer a traditional typing layout in a small form factor, plus iPad mini function shortcut keys for commands you use most often, such as copy, paste and more.
The keyboard case comes in three colors: black, white, and purple. I got the black model.
It’s priced at $79.99.
