Over at the IFA tradeshow in Berlin. Zagg has launched a couple of new iPad keyboards. And one of them, the Pro Plus, has something I have missed ever since I took to typing on my iPad in the corners of dark and seedy bars: a keyboard backlight.
Along with Apple and Logitech, Zagg makes the best iPad keyboards around. This one has the usual features: built-in rechargeable battery, magnet to sleep/wake the iPad when you marry/separate the two, and an array of iPad-specific keys, including search, home, media keys and cut/copy/paste but not including brightness.
What sets it apart, though, is the backlight, which has its own activation key down by the spacebar. Now you can type away fro hours without needing to shine a light to see what you’re writing.
The Pro Plus will ship at the end of September and will go for $130.
