Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini

Meet the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini, the little brother to the same keyboard/case combo we've enjoyed on the full-size iPad.

“We are excited to bring the award-winning Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover design – recognized across the industry as the best mobile keyboard for iPad – to the iPad mini,” Alexis Richard, director of brand development for tablet accessories, said in a news release. “Think of it as the other half of your iPad mini. Its clever seven-inch design fits perfectly with the iPad mini while offering full-size keys for easy typing, saving your screen space for content.”

The Ultrathin Keyboard uses the same magnetic setup as a Smart Cover when serving as a case, providing a pretty significant shell over the iPad's display. Flip it over and slide the iPad into the groove and it becomes a Bluetooth keyboard. Obviously this one will be smaller than the full-size version, so we'll just have to see how much the difference cramps our style (and our typing).

Logitech expects the Ultrathin Keyboard Mini to be available in the U.S. and Europe sometime this month. It'll retail for $79.99.
