    Logitech has today announced the launch of its Ultrathin Keyboard Mini, which is a slim, protective keyboard/cover designed to use with the iPad mini.

    The keyboard uses powerful integrated magnets to attach it to your iPad mini, and comes with a thin aluminum cover that matches the tablet, and also protects it. When you want to use the keyboard, you simply flip it around to access the built-in Bluetooth EasyType keyboard, which boasts a traditional key layout in a mini form factor. Logitech says that it also has iPad mini function shortcut keys for popular commands such as copy and paste. You can also use it as a hands-free view stand when watching movies on your iPad mini. When the Ultrathin Keyboard is fitted to your iPad mini, it will also automatically wake your iPad up when you open the cover, and place it on standby when you close the cover. When used for an average of two hours per day, you can expect the keyboard to have a three-month battery life.

    The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini will be available sometime this month in the US and Europe, for an SRP of $79.99/£69.99.

    Cool. I do worry that it might be too cramp, though.

    You'll get used to it though. I used a netbook with almost the same size keyboard and it felt cramped at first but as I started to use it more I got used to the small size. The biggest problem is going from small keyboard to larger one as I had to when my netbook got busted.

    Well, sort of maybe yes. A hybrid or a convertible might be a better term.....
