Apple’s iPad Mini tablet offers a lot of functionality for users.

However, when it comes to typing, many of us prefer to use an external keyword rather than using the tablet screen. The process becomes a whole lot faster and easier.

It’s not the fault of the built-in keyboard; it’s just the way humans have learned to type.

There’s already a keyboard available for the full-sized iPad, and today, Logitech announced a new Ultrathin Keyboard for the iPad Mini.

Labeled as the other half of the iPad mini, the full QWERTY keyboard offers wireless connectivity via Bluetooth. The device comes with an aluminum cover, which protects the display screen of the small sized tablet.

Apart from typing and protecting the screen, consumers would be able to use it as a stand.

Just like the currently available Smart Covers, it makes use of the magnetic attachment. 

Logitech’s press release indicates the Ultrathin Keyboard mini will be available across U.S and Europe sometime this month. The suggested retail price is $79.99.

The keyboard is also available for 2nd, 3rd and 4th-generation iPads.
