Review: Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini
8 April 2013
Summary: At $80 in the US, and a heck of a lot more in Norway, this isn’t a cheap keyboard. It is, however, a very good one. Despite the size, it’s comfortable to type on, and makes the iPad mini a very powerful typing tool. With this and a Bluetooth mouse connected to my jailbroken iPad mini, and using Jump Desktop to remote control my computer, I essentially have a 9-inch laptop with a 10 hour battery life and more processing power than actual Windows tablets (all thanks to...
Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini: A diamond with flaws
13 February 2013
Summary: The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini is arguably the best keyboard/case option available for the iPad Mini, but it still doesn't offer a great typing experience.
Pros: The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini is slim, lightweight, and matches up well with the iPad Mini, serving as a screen protector. While small, the keyboard itself has arguably the best layout and design of any iPad Mini keyboard/case.
Cons: The keyboard is a bit cramped and the case only protects the front of your iPad, not the back.
Conclusion: There’s little to complain about with the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini. It’s well engineered, highly portable and runs for ever. For £70 though, we hope you’re planning to write a masterpiece on the commute. If you’re not a frequent traveller, you might be able to make do with a much cheaper Bluetooth keyboard - or no QWERTY at all.
Pros: The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini is built like a dream: it hooks up to your tablet with a quick magnetic snap, pairs easily using Bluetooth, and travels well for something so thin. You’ll need to pop it off to slot it in in typing mode, but it’s a matter of moments and you’re away again. All in all, it’s a serious Smart Cover replacement. The keyboard has been thoughtfully laid out too, given the limited confines Logitech has to work within. You get...
Cons: Serious touch typists might be aggrieved at the size of the keys - they’re not quite full size in the same way some netbooks keyboard are and were. There’s still an element of henpecking to the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover - but when you’re dealing with a screen this small, we’re not sure there’s much to be done about that - and it’s still faster than typing on glass. That’s if you’re working on a flat surface mind, and if you plan on working on your iPad mini on...

Pros: The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover has a slim design, fits perfectly onto the iPad 2 and third-generation iPad via magnets, and works extremely well as a keyboard.

Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover makes the right compromises
20 April 2012
Excerpt: (1 items) As more and more people are using the iPad for quote-real-unquote work, iPad keyboards are becoming popular accessories, offering the tactile advantages of real keys without sacrificing the iPad’s portability and touchscreen interface. Back in December, I wrote our iPad keyboards buying guide based on my testing of approximately three dozen keyboards, but a number of new models have been released since then.
Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini review
19 April 2013
Conclusion: If you need to do a lot of typing on the go from your iPad then this certainly offers you the ability to just that. It is quicker than typing on screen, once you've got used to the smaller keyboard, and does mean you'll be able to get that document written or those longer emails bashed out quickly. There are faults, the magnets could be stronger and there is no protection for the rear of your tablet, but on the whole it is worth using.
Pros: Slim, long lasting battery, plenty of shortcut buttons, well-built
Cons: Tight keyboard and small keys, magnets need to be stronger
The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini is basically a shrunken version of the original model

Summary: Despite retaining many of the aspects that made the larger version one of the best keyboard accessories on the market, the Ultrathin Keyboard mini is just too small to comfortably type on for long periods.
Pros: Stylish and effective design, Long lasting battery, Good build quality
Cons: Cramped keyboard, Magnet isn't very strong, No rear iPad mini protection
