Logitech announces Type+ keyboard for iPad Air

Logitech Type+ Bluetooth keyboard for iPad Air

This new Bluetooth keyboard case for iPad Air provides good protection, an improved typing experience and up to 3 months of battery life on a single charge.

Logitech announced a new physical keyboard for Apple's iPad Air earlier this week. According to the official blog post, the Logitech Type+ is "a protective case with an integrated keyboard that can make using your iPad even more productive in your daily routine."

The Type+ is not Logitech's first such accessory for mobile devices but comes with a few improvements over previous similar products. While the thin and light case offers two-sided protection from bumps, scratches, and even accidental spills, the improved Bluetooth keyboard tries to replicate the layout and user experience offered by a laptop keyboard. To accomplish this, Logitech optimized the distance between the keys, but also added a row of iOS shortcuts.

Logitech Type+ also has an automatic On/Off feature for the keyboard, but it can also send the connected iPad Air to sleep or wake it up as the case closes or opens. It will hit the market in mars red orange and carbon black later this month, but availability and pricing have not been announced yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
