There may be a lot of keyboard cases for the iPad out on the market, but there are not very many cases for its smaller counterpart, the iPad mini. The main problem is fitting all of those keys into such a compact area. Today, ZAGG announced the launch of two new keyboard cases for the iPad mini that promise to be the most versatile on the market.
At this year’s CTIA convention, ZAGG unveiled the ZAGGkeys Cover and ZAGGkeys Foilo for iPad mini. Both are Bluetooth-enabled keyboard cases for the 7.9-inch tablet. Unlike most keyboard cases for tablets, these feature a hinge system that allows for a full range of viewing angles up to 135 degrees.
“We are very excited about the new ZAGGkeys Cover and ZAGGkeys Folio. They are lighter, more convenient and easier to use than any other tablet keyboard accessory on the market,” said Kent Wuthrich, executive vice president of marketing for ZAGG. “We conducted extensive customer research to aid in our concept and design, and customers are going to love these new creative product solutions.”
The ZAGGkeys Cover features a hinge system that lets users adjust the screen to almost any angle. You can also flip the tablet over for flat viewing. The keyboard is backlit with seven different color options and three brightness options. The rechargeable battery lasts up to three months with normal use.
The ZAGGkeys Folio is “the thinnest and most diverse Bluetooth keyboard/case combo available.” It features the same hinge system as the ZAGGkeys Cover. This case provides full body protection to keep the iPad mini from getting scratches or dings. The keyboard also offers seven different colors of backlighting with three brightness levels. The rechargeable battery lasts up to three months with normal use.
The Zaggkeys Cover will be available later this year in silver and black. The ZAGGkeys Folio will also be available later this year in black and white, with additional colors being added this fall. Both cases will retail for $99.99. Visit the company’s website for more information.
