Logitech tend to make some high-quality accessories, so itâ€™s very interesting to see these two new gadgets that the company has just launched for the iPad. First up we have the Logitech Joystick for the iPad, which gives the user a thumb-stick style game controller for either the iPad or iPad 2, and which is compatible with virtually any game with an on-screen joystick or d-pad. As with some other similar devices weâ€™ve seen on the market, the Joystick is attached to the iPad with suction caps that are designed to be easy to apply and take off without damaging the screen. The Joystick is also fitted with a coiled spring, which provides force feedback that automatically returns it to the center position. Expect to see this accessory in US and European stores at the beginning of September, for an SRP of $19.99.
The second gadget launched today by Logitech is a fold-up keyboard for iPad 2 only, which features a full-size, Bluetooth keyboard and stand. When closed, the keyboard rests safely and securely under your iPad 2, and when open, it holds the tablet at the perfect angle for typing. Unlike some folio Bluetooth iPad keyboards, the Logitech keyboard is full-sized. It also charges via USB, so you wonâ€™t have to worry about finding new batteries to power it. The device is designed to wake up and be ready to use as soon as you unfold it, and it will also turn itself off automatically when you fold it up to save on power. Itâ€™s also designed to incorporate your iPad 2â€™s Smart Cover. Youâ€™ll be able to get your hands on one in retail stores in the US and Europe in early September, for an SRP of $129.99.
