Logitech Teams With ZAGG For Keyboard-Equipped iPad 2 Case

Logitech has a long history of pumping out peripherals on their own, but for whatever reason they've decided to team up with yet another accessory maker for their newest device. The Logitech Keyboard Case is actually designed in cooperation with ZAGG, yet another peripheral maker, and it's actually one of the more unique options. It's an iPad 2 case, but it has a built-in keyboard. A couple of those have surfaced, but none of them have really managed to grab the public with stellar build quality and functionality.

This particular case is made of precision-cut aircraft-grade aluminum and features military-grade, high-density padding. It's always hard going right up against Apple themselves, but the Smart Cover definitely doesn't offer a keyboard option. The Keyboard Case has a flexible, folding hinge, and it uses Bluetooth to pair the included keyboard. You'll also be able to charge that over USB, and unlike some of the more pricey alternatives, this one will ship later this month for just $99.99.

Logitech Introduces Case With Built-In Keyboard for iPad 2

Company Teams Up with ZAGG to Deliver First iPad 2 Case

FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Logitech (SIX:LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) today unveiled the Logitech® Keyboard Case, delivering type-and-go convenience for your iPad® 2. Smart and sleek, Logitech’s first offering designed especially for tablets provides an extra measure of convenience and style, wherever you take your iPad 2.

    “This is the first of several products we plan to introduce this year designed specifically to enhance the way people create, consume and communicate using their tablet.”

The Logitech Keyboard Case is made of precision-cut aircraft-grade aluminum and features military-grade, high-density padding. The protective case wraps around the iPad 2 to cover the screen and sides. So you can go from Face Time® to e-mail in no time, the Logitech Keyboard Case offers a flexible, folding hinge, which makes it easy to place your iPad 2 in either portrait or landscape mode.

And for your convenience, the Logitech Keyboard Case uses Bluetooth® connectivity to pair the included wireless keyboard quickly and easily and the keyboard charges over USB, so you never need to worry about replacing batteries.

Offered in Collaboration with ZAGG

The Logitech Keyboard Case has been developed in partnership with ZAGG (NASDAQ: ZAGG), a market leader in providing innovative mobile device accessories. The two companies have entered into an agreement that provides Logitech with exclusive worldwide distribution rights to the ZAGGmate™ case design for the iPad2 and other tablets.

“The Logitech Keyboard Case combines style and function in one great package,” said Azmat Ali, Logitech senior director for tablet products. “This is the first of several products we plan to introduce this year designed specifically to enhance the way people create, consume and communicate using their tablet.”

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech Keyboard Case is expected to be available in the U.S. in April 2011 for a suggested retail price of $99.99 (U.S.). Visit www.logitech.com for more information.

ZAGG seems like a good case maker to team up with to me. They have some pretty cool stuff. I think you can even get truly personal custom printed cases from them.
