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.
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...
Excerpt: The Ultrathin Keyboard cover is Logitech’s second attempt at an iPad keyboard/case accessory. Its initial offering was in the form of the ZAGG iPad Keyboard Case that might not have been the most affordable accessory for the iPad, as it is an expensive device, but it did offer quite a bit of protection and functionality. The Ultrathin attempts to do the same, but with more style. Here’s a closer look.

Excerpt: Attached to the two current iPad models using an iPad Smart Cover-style magnetic rail, the silver aluminum-backed lid perfectly matches the backs of Apple’s tablets: once it’s on an iPad, you can very easily see how Apple could offer two-piece “MacBook Touch” laptops if it wanted to corner the transforming tablet market.
Excerpt: Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad is one of the best keyboard accessories available, so it's no surprise to see that the company has produced a version to fit the smaller iPad mini .

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini review
19 April 2013
Excerpt: Logitech has long made a thin keyboard bolt-on case come accessory for the regular iPad, but can the same concept work for the iPad mini? We found out with the latest offering from the mouse and keyboard maker.
Pros: Slim, long lasting battery, plenty of shortcut buttons, well-built
Cons: Tight keyboard and small keys, magnets need to be stronger
Conclusion: You buy the iPad mini for its portability and looks, something you sacrifice with keyboard cases like the Belkin Portable Keyboard Case . Fortunately, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini follows in the footsteps of its full-size counterpart, offering a comfortable keyboard and a design that preserves the minimal Apple aesthetic. In exchange, you get minimal protection.
Pros: Sleek aluminium build, Thin and light, Springy, relatively comfortable keyboard, Automatic sleep/wake function
