Belkin Turns iPad Mini into Netbook with New Keyboard Case

The accessories are starting to really roll in for the iPad Mini, not the least of which is a new portable keyboard folio from Belkin. The Belkin Portable Keyboard Case for iPad Mini is the full package, offering us “sleek, portable protection” while making it easier to type for extended periods (one of the chief complaints of many would-be iPad Mini users).

Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management at Belkin discusses their new product:

“Because the iPad mini enjoys most of the same features as a full-sized iPad, it only makes sense to offer a scaled down version of our award-winning keyboard folio for the iPad mini. No matter the size of the device, people want an alternative to touchscreen typing that is comfortable, intuitive and accurate, and our new portable keyboard gives them that option.”

Boasting well-spaced keys with “each key [having] a spring mechanism that provides tactile feedback when struck, enabling fast, intuitive, and comfortable typing”, this keyboard case should be the perfect accessory for anybody who enjoys the increased portability of the new, smaller iPad but misses the larger screen-real estate for extended periods of data entry.

As an added bonus, the Belkin Portable Keyboard Case for iPad Mini connects quickly via Bluetooth® wireless technology and also features shortcut keys letting you control volume as well as your music and video (all while providing 155 hours of active battery life on a single charge).

The case itself is functional, folding flat when not in use and offering all of the requisite cutouts and access for the camera and docking port –plus the keyboard can actually be removed if you want to find a more comfortable typing angle!

The Belkin Portable Keyboard Case for iPad Mini will be available to order in November (just in time for holiday shopping) directly from the Belkin website for $79.99.
