ZAGG has introduced two new keyboard accessories for the iPad mini. The ZAGGkeys Cover and ZAGGkeys Folio are "ultra-thin" Bluetooth keyboard accessories built with a patent-pending hinge system that offers a range of viewing angles up to 135 degrees.
The new ZAGGkeys Cover is the most versatile Bluetooth keyboard on the market and the thinnest at just 6.3mm, boasts Kent Wuthrich, executive vice president of marketing for ZAGG. It features a hinge that lets users position the screen at virtually any viewing angle as well as reverse the iPad mini for a one-piece reading and playing mode.
The ZAGGkeys Cover also features backlit keys in seven color options and three lighting levels. A battery purportedly keeps the Cover going for up to three months of normal use before it needs to be charged, while a magnetic closure protects the screen during transport. The ZAGGkeys Cover will be available in both silver and black, matching the back finish of the iPad mini. It's expected to retail for US$99.99.
At only 6.9mm thin, the new ZAGGkeys Folio is the thinnest and most diverse Bluetooth keyboard/case combo available, claims Wuthrich. It also features the patented hinge that allows users to position the screen at virtually any viewing angle, as well as backlit keys in seven colors and three lighting levels.
In addition, the ZAGGkeys Folio provides full body protection to help keep an iPad free from scratches and dings. The keyboard’s battery purportedly lasts for up to three months of regular use between charges. The ZAGGkeys Folio initially will be available in black and white, with new colors rolling off the production line by fall. The accessory has a suggested retail price of $99.99.
