Students who picked up (or got for Christmas) Apple’s new iPad mini are going to be pleased to hear that Logitech has announced a new keyboard cover is both aesthetically pleasing and comes with a package of functions. It attaches via integrated magnets and allows the cover to put your table into sleep as well as awaken it simply by putting the keyboard cover over it.

During usage, the cover acts as a stand to hold your tablet in landscape mode; through Bluetooth, it pairs with your iPad in order for the keys to function seamlessly while typing. The keyboard comes with dedicated keys for controlling brightness, search, and music playback.When you are done using your iPad, the keyboard easily detaches and can be used as a cover to protect the front of your Apple tablet. It also comes in both white and black to match your tablet.

This is an amazing product for students because it can potentially replace the laptop for taking notes during class. Users of on-screen keyboards will testify that typing with a physical keyboard is always preferred. The tactile response of physical keys is a great While enclosed with your iPad mini, the case is extremely thin and light at 7.33mm thin and 220 grams so it fits very well in a school bag filled with textbooks and binders. It also comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 3 months if you’re using it for 2 hours daily. Not only is this product the perfect accessory for taking notes but also for daily social activities such as blogging, browsing the web and networking on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. The Logitech keyboard cover simply allows writing content on your iPad mini a breeze with its ease of setup and use.

Darrell Etherington of Tech Crunch reviews the keyboard cover and writes:

“While the typing experience isn’t perfect on the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard, it’s about as close as you can get without adding a lot more bulk to a Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad mini. It still dramatically increases your ability to enter text, and beats using the software keyboard by a very wide margin. If you’re looking for an iPad mini keyboard that maintains the smaller tablet’s considerable size advantage over its big brother and still greatly improves the experience of typing anything longer than a tweet”

David Carnoy of CNET also praises the tablet accessory but mentions that the keyboard cover leaves the back of the iPad mini unprotected and exposed, which has the potential to be scratched easily.

If you have the budget for an $80 mini keyboard, this is going to be a phenomenal accessory for students. The tactile feel of a physical keyboard, combined with the thin elegant design of the cover makes for a product that perfectly pairs your iPad mini for portability and productivity whether it be browsing the web or taking notes.
