Logitech’s rugged new iPad keyboard looks like it belongs on a Surface instead

If you know someone who uses a keyboard with their iPad, it’s a safe bet that they use one made by Logitech. The company’s releasing a new model today, called the Logitech Keys-To-Go.

It’s a Bluetooth keyboard compatible with any iPad, and it looks an awful lot like a simplified version of the fabricky Touch Cover that comes with the Microsoft Surface.

The $69.99 keyboard comes in red, black, and teal. It’s just over 6mm thick, meaning it’ll slip entirely unnoticed into any bag or backpack — though even at just six ounces it does add almost 50 percent more weight to the remarkably thin iPad Air 2. It’s made of what Logitech calls “FabricSkin,” a textured, spillproof surface that looks in photos like it’s basically identical to the Touch Cover’s grippy surface.

It looks a bit wider than the iPad mini, which means it’ll be cramped but not impossibly so; it’ll certainly be easier than typing quickly on the iPad’s touchscreen.
