Archos moves into iPad accessories with the Archos Design Bluetooth Keyboard

Archos moves into iPad accessories with the Archos Design Bluetooth KeyboardArchos is very well known for its tablets and was one of the first to hit the market with a dedicated personal media player. Now after years of average success with its own products, it is branching out by making accessories for other devices. First out of the gate is the Archos Design Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad, it is a magnetic clip on Bluetooth keyboard designed to be used with the all 9.7-inch iPads with the exception of the first generation.

The Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad was created by a new division in ARCHOS that will be dedicated to sharing ARCHOS innovations with other brands. With a very similar look and feel to the ARCHOS Gen10 XS coverboard, the Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad is ultra-thin at only 5 mm (0.2’’) and features an adjustable kickstand along with an aluminum back casing. Combining the best of both worlds.

“The needs and wants of today’s consumer have changed drastically over the past few years. Consumers expect everything to be smaller, faster, thinner, lighter and aesthetically pleasing,” says Henri Crohas, Founder and CEO of ARCHOS. “In order to meet this demand we feel that we should share our innovation and design across a number of different platforms.”

The Archos Design Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad certainly looks the part with its super slim design, aluminium construction, long battery life and magnetic connection to the iPad. It is slated to be released in March this year with a suggested price of $79.

Wow. That's cool. Maybe they could also make one with black keys to match the black iPad bezel.
