Archos introduces magnetic Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad

Ultra-slim iPad cover features Bluetooth keyboard and comes in at $79.

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.

The accessory also includes iPad native shortcuts, an adjustable kickstand and comes all decked out in white aluminum.

The device should be available in March and will cost a reasonable $79.
