All-in-One Case Offers Laptop-like Typing Keyboard and Total Protection
Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the Logitech SLIM FOLIO PRO, an all-in-one backlit keyboard case for the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro® (3rd Generation). Leveraging 20 years of typing experience and reimagining the best-selling SLIM FOLIO product for iPad Pro, the SLIM FOLIO PRO provides a comfortable, laptop-like typing experience on your iPad Pro with reliable Bluetooth® LE pairing in a protective case for wherever you work.
“Many of us work away from a traditional desk these days, so whether your office is at the kitchen table, a couch, a neighbourhood cafe or an airport lounge you need a complete and easy typing solution,” said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. “The new Logitech SLIM FOLIO PRO brings even more versatility to iPad Pro, with a high performance backlit keyboard layout that lets you work at your highest level. With one click it makes your iPad Pro more like a laptop for easy typing whenever and wherever you need it.”
Whether you’re typing, sketching or reading, SLIM FOLIO PRO is adjustable to meet your needs:
- Typing: Dock the iPad Pro upright and start typing comfortably on an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard. Every keystroke is fluid, natural and accurate, and the scissor mechanism of the SLIM FOLIO PRO beneath each key delivers the perfect bounce for fast, accurate typing. The keyboard also features a full row of iOSⓇ shortcut keys to control brightness, volume and more.
- Sketching: Easily tuck the SLIM FOLIO PRO into a position to create your next design. The sides of the case are open so you can charge Apple Pencil® (2nd Generation) without removing the case and when you're done sketching, slide the Apple Pencil inside the magnetic latch, where it won’t get lost or in the way.
- Reading: Simply fold the SLIM FOLIO PRO keyboard back for easy reading of your favourite ebooks, news articles, magazines and more.
SLIM FOLIO PRO securely holds iPad Pro in a lightweight case that keeps corners protected and doesn’t weigh you down, keeping your iPad safe from scuffs, scratches and spills. A secure magnetic latch keeps the case securely closed when not in use to protect your iPad screen.
With Bluetooth® LE pairing, setup is simple and the case maintains a reliable wireless connection between iPad Pro and keyboard. Once connected, your keyboard automatically remembers your device every time you open your iPad Pro to type. The rechargeable battery lasts up to three months on a single charge.
