Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the new iPad brings innovation into productivity accessories
The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for new iPad is a mouthful of a name, but focus on the word "ultrathin". This thing might have finally cracked the code of tablet Bluetooth accessories, since it doesn't add so much bulk to your slate+keyboard+stand setup that you wish you just bought a small notebook.
The keyboard part snaps magnetically to your new iPad just like Apple's Smart Covers, but don't worry about scratching the screen as there is a rim around preventing direct contact of the keys with the "resolutionary" display. There is also a grove above the keyboard part, where you can slide the iPad in, and use the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover as a stand, making an improvised notebook out of both.
This time Logitech provides a rechargeable juicer inside, with a microUSB port on the side for charging. It estimates you'll be able to get quite the mileage out of a full charge - about six months - provided that your average usage is roughly 2 hours of typing a day. As an added bonus the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover has all the features of a Smart Cover, as it wakes the iPad up when opened, and locks it when closed. The accessory will be available some time by the end of this month for $99.99.
