Belkin has introduced a keyboard case combination called the Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad. It is to be available in mid-April in two colors black ($99) and silver ($129). They are accepting pre-orders.
Belkin describes the case as follows:
“With a base made of specially machined aluminum alloy, our iPad case with Keyboard offers outstanding durability while maintaining a slim profile. The keyboard is only 6.4 mm thin and the keyboard case weighs only 17 ounces to help maintain and highlight the iPad’s thin, lightweight design.”
“The wireless keyboard for iPad employs large well-spaced TruType keys to deliver a laptop-like typing experience, helping you minimize errors and increase typing speed. With the Ultimate Keyboard Case, you’ll make quick work of your emails, word processing, messaging, and other typing-intensive work. The keyboard also has built-in shortcut keys that allow for easy media control.”
“The wireless keyboard pairs with your iPad via Bluetooth® 2.0, so you don’t have to worry about plugging it in. It also turns on as soon as you place your iPad in one of three viewing positions and turns off when you’re done using it, which saves battery life. The built-in rechargeable battery runs for up to 160 hours between charges and up to 1,900 hours (or 6 months) when in standby mode. When you do need to charge it, the included USB-to-micro-USB cable makes charging easy.”
The keyboard’s SoundFlow design directs your iPad’s sound toward you, making the audio of music and movies more powerful and clear.
In sum, the features include:
- Wireless iPad keyboard and protective case in one
- Folds flat; the keyboard is only 6.4mm thin
