Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is a\u00a0wireless keyboard, stand and cover\u00a0for\u00a0Apple's iPad 2 and the new iPad.\u00a0The built-in stand\u00a0props your iPad up\u00a0at an angle that's\u00a0ideal for\u00a0typing, Web surfing\u00a0and media consumption. The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover also comes with a magnetic clip that attaches to the iPad and turns\u00a0the\u00a0keyboard\u00a0into a\u00a0protective cover when not in use.\n\tThe Ultrathin Keyboard Cover looks great and it's functional. The keyboard's base\u00a0is made of aluminum\u00a0with a\u00a0beautiful matte finish. The top surface is shiny, polished plastic, and the\u00a0keyboard and keys are\u00a0\u201cchiclet\u201d style.\n\tWhen not in use, the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover\u00a0folds over\u00a0the iPad\u2019s display with its metallic side facing outwards.\u00a0The keys\u00a0are slightly recessed\u00a0so they don't touch your iPad\u2019s screen when the cover is closed. And magnets automatically put your iPad\u00a0to "sleep" when the cover is in\u00a0place.\u00a0The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover roughly doubles your iPad's thickness.\n\tWhen you're ready to use the keyboard you\u00a0simply detach\u00a0it and place it on a flat table. Then you put the iPad\u00a0into\u00a0a\u00a0slot on the keyboard that\u00a0uses\u00a0a magnetic fastener to\u00a0hold the iPad in place.\u00a0 The magnetic fastener does not work\u00a0when the iPad is situated vertically, but your tablet still stays in place.\n\tThe Ultrathin Keyboard Cover pairs with your iPad via\u00a0a Bluetooth pairing button,\u00a0and the on\/off switch is\u00a0located right beside the pairing key.\u00a0The keyboard's battery is\u00a0powered\u00a0via\u00a0micro USB,\u00a0and Logitech says it should last\u00a0six months with two hours of usage per day.\n\tThe keyboard's numeric keys and iPad\u00a0multimedia controls\u00a0are in a single row, along with a\u00a0key to\u00a0bring up the tablet's\u00a0on-screen keyboard, a \u201chome\u201d button, and various other shortcuts keys. The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is about the same size as the iPad's\u00a0on-screen keyboard. I loved the feel of the hard plastic keys, and the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is among the best portable keyboards I\u2019ve used.\n\tLogitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover: Conclusion\n\tI don\u2019t really have any significant complaints about the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, beyond the tiny size of the \u201cdelete\u201d key. Also, the highly-reflective plastic retains fingerprints and smudges, and\u00a0a lack of rubber "feet"\u00a0causes dirt\u00a0to accumulate along the edges of its base after a while.\n\tDespite its name, the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is not so much a cover\u00a0but a highly portable keyboard.\u00a0You can\u00a0attach a\u00a0Smart-Cover-compatible case to your iPad for extra\u00a0protection, but a soft slipcase for the keyboard and iPad would have been welcome; this keyboard isn't cheap at\u00a0$99.99, and it can get dinged up rather easily.\n\tOverall, I'm a big fan of the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, and its superb\u00a0design makes\u00a0it one of the sleeker\u00a0external keyboards for iPad that I've used.\n\tThe high-gloss surface of the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover makes it look good, but it's quick to attract dust and fingerprints.\n\tThe slot on the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover comes with a built-in magnetic fastener that\u00a0helps keep\u00a0the iPad in place\n\tThe "chiclet" keys do not touch the screen of your iPad when the cover is closed thanks to a recessed lip around the keys.\n\tThe superb design makes the conjoined keyboard and iPad look like an ultraportable laptop.\n\tThe Ultrathin Keyboard Cover affixed to a new iPad.
