Logitech has just announced a new keyboard cover for the iPad mini, aptly named the Ultrathin Keyboard mini. To go along with its 7.3-mm (0.29-inch) thin form factor, Logitech has also focused on making the keyboard light enough to retain the iPad mini’s portability. In fact, the keyboard cover weighs in at only 220 grams (0.48 lb).

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini will attach itself securely to your iPad mini as you hear the click of powerful integrated magnets. Thanks to the use of a slim aluminum cover, you can be sure that it will match the design of the iPad mini, while bringing along with it durable protection without bulking up your tablet. Whenever your fingers feel as though they would want to dance all over the keyboard, just flip the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini, and its built-in Bluetooth EasyType keyboard will be revealed, offering all and sundry a traditional typing layout in a small seven-inch form factor.

To make sure you do not end up like a fish out of water, it will also be equipped with iPad mini function shortcut keys for the commands that you would use most often, including copy and paste. Not only that, it will also double up as a hands-free view stand for you to make use of your iPad mini without having to go through the trouble of holding it.

The cover portion of the keyboard is able to put your iPad to sleep and wake it up as you close and open the device. It also comes with a quick locking system that makes it easy to place your iPad mini in the cover and get to work.
