That’s pretty darn fast: Keyboard-maker Zagg has unveiled two new keyboard cases for the iPad Mini, just a day after Apple pulled the sheet off its new pint-sized iPad. There’s the Zaggkeys Mini 7, a pared-down seven-inch model that spans the width of the Mini, and the Zaggkeys Mini 9, a 9-inch version with a slightly more comprehensive suite of keys.
We’ve been big fans of Zagg’s Bluetooth keyboards in the past, so hopefully they’ve stuck with the formula here. The 9-inch version seems like it adds more plastic than a Tupperware party to the Mini’s svelte dimensions, and for not much gain — both versions include dedicated volume control, play, pause, screen lock, home, search, slideshow, copy and paste keys.
The models are both priced at $90 and will be available November 2.
