Logitech today announced four new products designed to protect your iPad Air when it arrives later this week. The products are the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio for iPad Air (US$149.99), Folio Protective Case for iPad Air ($49.99), Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air ($99.99) and Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for iPad Air ($99.99).
The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is a new and thinner version of the existing design made especially to compliment the skinnier iPad Air. It will arrive in two colors -- aluminum silver with a white keyboard and space gray with a black keyboard. The thickest part of the keyboard is just 7.5 mm thick, tapering to 5 mm at the front of the keyboard. It weighs about 330 grams, and maintains the exact key spacing and size as the existing Ultrathin Keyboard Cover.
The FabricSkin Keyboard Folio has gone on a diet, dropping to about 425 grams from the previous model. Along with the Ultrathin Keyboard Folio and the Folio Protective Case, the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio now sports the new SecureLock with two clips that keep your iPad fastened to the frame while making the folios easy to remove. Like the existing FabricSkin Keyboard Folio, the new one features a water-repellant material covering the keyboard.
The Ultrathin Keyboard Folio also weighs in at about 425 grams, and wraps the entire iPad for protection while providing a very usable and almost full-sized keyboard. The Folio Protective Case doesn't provide a keyboard, but weighs just 261 grams and works as an adjustable stand.
All of the new Logitech products are expected to arrive in November 2013.
