Archos has always been known for their Android tablets and Portable Media Players, but the French company is now tossing their hat into the accessories arena. As part of their new Archos Design line of products, the new iPad cover is a slim offering that still manages to pack a full Bluetooth keyboard.
Coming at just 5mm thick, the magnetic cover features a full-QWERTY keyboard and fits on all 2nd-generation iPads and up. The accessory also includes iPad native shortcuts, an adjustable kickstand and comes all decked out in white aluminum. As with most other iPad accessories, the Archos cover plays nice with Apple's "Smart Cover" magnets and will put your tablet to sleep accordingly.
The device should be available in March and will cost a reasonable $79.
