Coming in at just 7mm, the FastFit keyboard case is thinner than the iPad mini. That doesn’t stop the company from outfitting it with its TruType keyboard, which offers tactile feedback when keys are pressed. It’s also very light, which is not surprising given it’s made from anodized aircraft-grade aluminium.
The keyboard connects to the iPad mini via Bluetooth 3.0 and is able to offer 155 hours of “active use” with its 200mAh battery. Like Apple’s Smart Cover, it also utilises a magnetic clasp so it can automatically look and wake your iPad mini when it is opened or closed.
Matching Logitech on price, Belkin has priced its FastFit Bluetooth wireless keyboard case at $79.99. The company hasn’t yet opened preorders, but says it will do so “soon.”
