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
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
