As the name suggests, Nomad Book is the company’s newest clamshell style iPad keyboard. Notably, it sports a modular design that allows it to work with the 10.5- and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the fifth and sixth generation iPad, and iPad Air and Air 2.
Other features include backlit keys, multiple device pairing, what looks like a spot to store your Apple Pencil on the rear, and more:
- Two detachable bumpers allow the keyboard to fit most tablets sized 10.5 inches or smaller, including the Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro, Apple 9.7-inch iPad (2017-18 models), Apple iPad Air 2, Apple iPad Air, Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2.
- Featuring multi-device pairing, the Nomad Book can connect simultaneously to a tablet and one more device, like a smartphone, for increased productivity – anytime and anywhere.
- With four convenient modes (book, keyboard, case, and video) and the ability to easily adjust the screen angle, the Nomad Book provides optimal viewing conditions.
- Additional features include a sturdy, reverse kickstand and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to two years between charges.
Nomad Book is priced at $99.
The other new product is Messenger Folio for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. This is definitely a more simple keyboard solution with two viewing angles, a non-backlit keyboard, and an Apple Pencil holder.
- The ZAGG Messenger Folio provides Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro users with a lightweight keyboard that doubles as a case and helps them make the most of their device.
- The simple, intuitive design, coupled with the magnetic closure, provides ease of use and additional protection by holding the case securely closed until it’s ready to use.
- Bluetooth technology ensures the Messenger Folio pairs instantly with the iPad. The rechargeable battery lasts up to three months between charges* and keeps users connected wherever they go.
- The built-in holder for Apple Pencil allows for safe storage when the pencil is not in use and provides easy access for when inspiration strikes.
You can pick up Messenger Folio for $59.
A variety of Zagg’s other iPad keyboard cases are available on Amazon from around $40.
