Award-winning BrydgeAir Bluetooth keyboard features a 180-degree hinge, backlit keys and 100% aluminium body

30th March 2016 (LONDON, UK) - Brydge today announces that its award winning Bluetooth keyboard, BrydgeAir, is compatible with Apple’s recently announced 9.7 inch iPad Pro. Providing the perfect complement to the iPad, the BrydgeAir provides the user with an unrivalled experience that maximises the functionality of the iPad whilst providing the productivity of a MacBook. Following the same award-winning design as other Brydge models, the BrydgeAir is equipped with Brydge’s patented 180-degree hinge system, high-grade 100 percent aluminum build, backlit keys and superb haptic key feel.

Designed to deliver even greater versatility to the iPad, the BrydgeAir provides users with the ideal balance between mobility and productivity. Currently the only 100 percent aluminum keyboard for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro, the BrydgeAir combines features which set it at a level above all other keyboards currently on the market for the iPad.

“This smaller iPad Pro is once again a game-changing device from Apple, and as with previous iPad models, will further revolutionise the way we work, learn and play,” says Nicholas Smith, CEO of Brydge.

“Apple’s introduction of a smart keyboard for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro is further validation that the iPad is a portable productivity device and very well suited for a keyboard. We feel the iPad deserves a keyboard of equal quality and functionality and that is exactly what we have sort to offer with the BrydgeAir.”

Brydge redefined the standard for iPad keyboards with its previously launched, premium range for the iPad Air and Air 2. With its Apple-inspired design and high quality features, the BrydgeAir keyboard is a sleek and seamless fit with the iPad. Its two hinges are each lined with a silicone shim, ensuring the iPad is held securely in place. The hinge system also provides unlimited viewing angles, including a full 180-degrees that deliver a laptop-like viewing experience and make it completely comfortable to work at a desk, on the go or sitting on a couch. When closed, the iPad is also protected from accidental bumps, scratches and spills.

BrydgeAir keyboards can be used with multiple models – iPad Air 1, 2 and 9.7 inch iPad Pro.
