- The ZAGG Pro Keys with Trackpad Wireless Keyboard and Rugged Book Keyboard is now available for iPad Pro, iPad AIr, and iPad
ZAGG today announced new keyboards for three of Apple's tablets; the 11-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad. The Pro Keys with Trackpad Wireless Keyboard and Rugged Book Keyboard are available to buy now.
With Apple's iPads continuing to blur the lines between tablet and notebook, ZAGG's new additions help continue that trend by attaching keyboards and trackpads to the iPad itself. The idea is similar to Apple's own Magic Keyboard – but cheaper.
The new Pro Keys with Trackpad is exactly what it sounds like, offering a Bluetooth connection with notebook-style keys and adjustable stand. There's even space for your Apple Pencil, too.
The Pro Keys with Trackpad is available now depending on the iPad you own, with prices starting at $139.99
The rugged alternative comes in the form of the Rugged Book, priced at $149.99.
Anyone looking to keep their iPad safe on a building site or other rough and tumble area will no doubt be drawn to this thing. It isn't all about ruggedness though, the keyboard's still backlit which is pretty cool!
