Logitech Ultrathin iPad Keyboard Review

Published on by accessories

After a week with the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover ($100), I can say it’s my new favorite iPad accessory. While it may not provide the same typing angle, key spacing or travel of a more traditional Bluetooth keyboard like the DELL Inspiron N4110 Keyboard  , Logitech makes up for it via sleek and clever portability. And, really, the typing feels good. Basically, the rechargeable Ultrathin makes good use of the iPad 2 and iPad 3′s integrated magnets — both for securing the keyboard as a screen cover when not in use and for additional stability when an iPad is docked into the keyboard. Check out Logitech’s promotional video to get a sense of how it comes apart and assembles. It’s a bit clumsy to unpack, but is quite secure and stable with the iPad in portrait orientation (unlike, say, the top-heavy ASUS Transformer Prime). Despite the (minimal) fumbling, I prefer this over integrated cases because the Apple tablet is not permanently affixed to a keyboard, providing a more flexible solution. However, both the Ultrathin and iPad rear will be exposed to scuffs… as you can see below. So you might end up investing in a padded sleeve and rubber feet.
