Logitech intros Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for third-gen iPad


Logitech has introduced its new Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the third-generation iPad and iPad 2. The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is a slim aluminum cover that attaches to the iPad with a magnetic clip, and features a built-in Bluetooth keyboard with stand, support for the iPad’s magnetic sleep/wake functionality, a piano black finish, function keys for improved navigation, and a six-month battery life. Logitech’s Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is available for pre-order now and is expected to ship later this month for $100; for more information, see our First Look article.

Looks almost perfect.  Waiting breathlessly for your review.

A couple questions:

- If you just want to use the touchscreen while keeping the keyboard connected, can you actually fold the keyboard flat around the back?

- It appears you have to disengage the magnets then insert the iPad into the slot for normal use.  How does that feel in practice?  A bit jarring/difficult, or no big deal?

Obviously with such a slim profile the keyboard experience will be a big question mark, but I assume you’ll cover that as a matter of course…
