Logitech's colorful new iPad case sports fabric keyboard
Logitech took the wraps off a new case for the full-sized iPad that features a built-in keyboard. The FabricSkin Keyboard Folio for iPad will go on sale in May for $150.
Logitech is offering the keyboard case in colors like Mars Red Orange, Carbon Black, Mystic Blue and Sunflower Yellow, with different materials including cotton and matte leather. Inside the front flap is a full-sized keyboard that's integrated directly into the cover using material Logitech calls "FabricSkin." Like the outside, the FabricSkin keyboard has been treated with a water-repellant coating to keep occasional moisture from damaging the circuitry.
The keyboard has built-in rechargeable batteries that last up to three months per charge (charging cable included). Magnets let the iPad rest in two positions in the folio case - upright and angled with the keyboard exposed for typing, or laying flat with the keyboard hidden for browsing, watching movies and so on.
