Logitech is one company that has spit out multiple keyboard designs for the iPad over the years. We aren’t going to lie either, the keyboard designs they out are some of the nicest quality products on the market for the iPad. But more importantly the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover also fits in the category with their other nice quality products.
The ‘Ultrathin Keyboard cover’ name may come out as misleading. Its actually an iPad stand and a keyboard. The ‘cover’ label comes into effect because your iPad can close down like a laptop computer.The keyboard attaches to your iPad via magnets on the corner of your iPad and the keyboard. The magnets force is strong and really has to be yanked off to remove. This is a great form of protection, not having to worry about your iPad or keyboard falling. The keyboard itself connects to your device via Bluetooth, making the connection process easy.
Now the actual keyboard was created using a hard black plastic. This reminds me of a more compact size HP keyboard. Besides the keys, the plastic has a shiny coating over top. Our only complaint is the finger prints that the plastic picks up. Logitech did package in a cleaning cloth to wipe up the fingerprints though.
The charging time of the device is phenomenal. Logitech has labeled the charge lasting nearly 6 months when used 2 hours per day. When you need to charge the keyboard you can use the micro-USB cable provided to charge via your computer.
Should You Purchase?
With all the choices on the internet for similar keyboards the choice is tough. The one unique part about this keyboard is the fact is closes like a laptop. If it hadn’t contained that feature than maybe your better off purchasing a non-attachable keyboard for your iPad.
The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover will cost you $99 on Logitech’s website. Please keep note that the keyboard is currently on pre-order with a release coming soon.
