It is very excited for iPad fans that Logitech launches Ultrathin keyboard for the iPad mini for $79. With their love for the full-sized version, the “mini” Ultrathin Keyboard has a lot to live up to.
Basics Ultrathin Keyboard Case for iPad mini:
Three months of battery life (based on two hours daily usage)
Availability: Preorder now, with availability sometime later this month
7.33mm thin, weighs 220 grams
Available in black and white (and red in select markets)
The Ultrathin’s keyboard is the part upon which everything hinges, and Logitech has pulled out all the stops to try to provide a typing experience that doesn’t feel compromised, despite the extremely limited real estate available given the iPad mini’s small footprint. To make it work, Logitech has combined a number of function buttons, reduced key size and cut down on the space between them.
The keys themselves feel great, and offer a nice response when typing despite how thin the cover is. But the experience isn’t without compromises. Typing on the keyboard will prove a frustrating experience at first for anyone used to using a full-sized keyboard. But the good news is that the number of errors you make starts to taper off pretty quickly, and in very little time, you can even feel mostly at home on the Ultrathin keyboard, though placement of some elements like the Shift keys never quite feels perfectly natural.
In my opinion, the iPad mini with Ultrathin Keyboard is very convenient for people who want to make business or work. While the typing experience isn’t perfect on the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard, it’s about as close as you can get without adding a lot more bulk to a Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad mini.
