Virtual keys on the iPad can be useful when you are responding to a short email or typing a web address, but what happens when you need to write something larger? Virtual keyboards just arenâ€™t enough. Thatâ€™s why Belkin comes to the aid of users needing assistance in this area. The company has just unveiled a new Portable Keyboard Case for the newest addition to the Apple tablet portfolio â€“ the iPad mini.
Belkin senior director of project management, Jamie Elgie stated:
â€œBecause the iPad mini enjoys most of the same features as a full-sized iPad, it only makes sense to offer a scaled down version of our award-winning keyboard folio for the iPad mini.â€
The caseâ€™s number is F5L145 and it will not only make typing more fun but will also help protect the screen from damage. Users shouldnâ€™t be fooled by the caseâ€™s small keys. They are very well spaced and provide the optimal amount of tactile feedback, thus ensuring that the typing experience is a smooth one. The keys are connected to the iPad via wireless Bluetooth.
To protect the case from scratches and other damages, the exterior of the case has been designed from a durable material while the interior has been coated with a soft material. The company claims that the keys can last up to 155 hours of constant usage before the technology needs to be charged via USB.
For users interested to purchase such a device, the Belkin Portable Keyboard Case comes available for the $79.99. Shippings are expected to start somewhere in November.
