Logitech, the company behind some our favorite cases and keyboards for iPad, today announced the newest member of its iPad keyboard case family with the addition of the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for the iPad mini priced at $89. It is currently available for pre-order with an expected release later this month in the US, Europe, and some locations in Asia.

Logitech appears to be making the case itself a little larger than the iPad mini in order to achieve a more comfortable keyboard size, but its solution for holding the iPad mini in snug seems to be a little more elegant than some of the other solutions we’ve seen. The company tells us the case utilizes a “SecureLock system” to hold the iPad in securely, and it’s using new materials that are “ultra-thin and ultra-light” in addition to being water-repellant.

It’s also making a version without a keyboard called the Logitech Folio Protective Case for iPad mini at $49 (pictured below). Logitech will be making the cases available in a selection of colors including grey, purple, and pink, but didn’t offer any specific details on availability. We’ll have a review as soon as they become available.

Speaking of Logitech products, 9to5Toys notes it is Logitech Week at Amazon with a lot of all time low prices on Logitech products.

  2. It looks kind of like they’ve made the case wider but actually *not* used that extra space for the keyboard which is weird. I also don’t like the way that the case makes it impossible to thumb type or effectively use the iPad in portrait mode, so you’re kind of “all in” with this keyboard should you choose to use it at all.
