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.

Looks great. Don't like the idea of charging it separately but then again, perfection is overrated! :)

Seems like it copied the Touch Cover...

Logitech has been doing these kinds of keyboards for a while, in various forms. If anything, Microsoft copied Logitech/Kingston/etc.

Look up 920-005021 on Amazon.

And Microsoft patented this.

Also, that number on amazon pulls up the keyboard cover for the iPad mini...

I've been thinking of getting a keyboard for my iPad, this might be the one. Will the iMore store be carrying it?

vianar says:

Did you get a chance to actually use it? I am just wondering about weight, overall thickness, as well as comfort and accuracy with typing.

Big Dookie says:

$150? Are you freaking kidding me?

They have a video, hahaha they made this folio stand out but creating and emotional connection through the colours and the fabrics... WOW, do they really feel that is going to work with people in an ad.

This is a nice care, why do they pick the weird colors. I wish they had better selection of colors!
