Logitech announced an iPad mini version of their Ultrathin iPad keyboard/case. The thin device combines protection with an integrated flip-up keyboard.
The keyboard utilizes the mini's magnetic cover system for Apple's Smart Cover. Like the larger version, the keyboard also offers functions keys, in addition to an instant on/off feature. The on/off feature works similarly to the Smart Cover, where the iPad will wake/sleep when opened, but also the keyboard will switch in/out of standby mode. The keyboard battery is rated for about 3 months of usage.
The Ultrathin Keyboard Design for iPad mini is expected to start shipping later this month. MSRP is $79.99 and comes in black and white versions.
