The Logitech FabricSkin Brings A Surface-Like Fabric Keyboard To Your iPad

Logitech-FabricSkin-iPad

Logitech has today announced a new addition to its growing family of iPad keyboard cases, but this one is unlike anything the company has offered before. It’s called the FabricSkin, and it offers a fabric keyboard much like that that comes with the Microsoft Surface tablet.

The great thing about a fabric keyboard is that its super slim and liquid resistant.

The FabricSkin’s keyboard has full-size keys fuzed into a high-quality fabric, which promises to provide you with a comfortable typing experience. It also has a liquid-repellant coating that “allows you to engage with iPad in new and expressive ways,” or means you don’t have to worry about spills in Starbucks.

Like the rest of Logitech’s keyboard case lineup, the FabricSkin has built-in magnets that’ll wake your iPad when you open it up, and put it back to sleep again when you close it. This helps prolong the battery life of both your iPad and the keyboard case, which offers up to three months of typing on one charge — based on around two hours of typing per day.

The FabricSkin charges via micro USB cable, and it’s compatible with the second-, third-, and fourth-generation iPads. It’s available in a six colors, and the color you choose determines the material your case is made out of. See the list below:

  • Carbon Black: Matte leather
  • Mars Red Orange: Strong, durable fabric
  • Electric Blue: Fine weave high quality cotton
  • Urban Grey:  Two tone woven fabric
  • Sunflower Yellow: Fine weave high quality cotton
  • Mystic Blue: Matte leather

You can pre-order the FabricSkin from Logitech’s online store starting today, and it’s priced at $149.99.

    If they make one for the iPad mini line, I might switch to them (From the amazing SwitchEasy Leather case I currently use) when I inevitably upgrade my mini in a few years or so. A keyboard is the one thing I do miss. But $150 is pretty high. Would be worth it as long as Apple doesn’t change the case of the iPad’s too much over time so you can keep using the case.
