ZAGG just announced the launch of a new line of keyboard cases that turns your iPad into a mobile workhorse. The three new cases turn your iPad into a laptop-like device so that you can work on the go without the weight of a laptop.
The company’s ultra-thin ZAGGkeys PRO and ZAGGkeys PROplus are slim keyboard accessories that connect to your iPad 2, 3 or 4 using magnetic closures to secure your device when the keyboard is not being used to protect it from normal damage that could take place in transit. Each keyboard case is made from lightweight aluminum and features an integrated stand so that, when typing, you can stand your iPad up to display it at the optimal viewing angle. The keyboard connects to the iPad using Bluetooth 3.0.
The ZAGGkeys PRO costs only $99.99 with free shipping. The ZAGGkeys PROplus includes the additional backlit keyboard for nighttime typing. If you tend to work on the train, or find yourself in dark environments, you’ll want to spend the additional $30 for the backlit keyboard feature for a total of $129.99 with free shipping.
The ZAGGkeys PROfolio+ keyboard case and cover for iPad 2, 3, and 4 is almost exactly like the ZAGGkeys PROplus, except that, instead of a hard shell that the iPad is connected to magnetically, it features a soft leather cover that the iPad slips into, making it look more like a keyboard folio case than a laptop.
The folio features a built-in stand that holds the iPad at the ideal viewing angle for typing and they keys are backlit to offer better lighting when typing in darkly lit rooms. There are dedicated function keys on the keyboard for volume control, play, pause, screen lock, home, search, slideshow, copy, paste, and more. The ZAGGkeys PROfolio+ is available in black and can be purchased from the company’s website for only $129.99 with free shipping.
