Logitech announced an updated version of the Ultrathin Keyboard Case for the iPad Air and iPad mini today. I previously wrote about the Ultrathin which has been a long favorite of reviewers. The new case seems to keep everything that was good with the prior case, while also making it thinner, lighter, and giving you additional viewing angles. Unfortunately the cases also keep the high retail price of $89.99 for the iPad Mini and $99.99 for the iPad Air.
The good news is that the previous models of these cases are now available at reduced rates on Amazon. The Ultrathin for the iPad Air is currently $79.99, the Ultrathin for the iPad mini is on sale for $67.99, and the Ultrathin for the iPad 2 and 3 is available for as inexpensive as $39.99.
Once reviews are available, I’ll update this post. You should start seeing the new Ultrathins on sale in retail locations soon.
The WireCutter recently reviewed keyboard options for the iPad Air and for the third year in a row, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard case was selected. Considering the release of Office for the iPad, even if you didn’t use a keyboard with the iPad in the past, you might be reconsidering that decision. I have previously used the Logitech Ultrathin with the iPad with Retina, and had no real complaints. If you are considering a keyboard for your iPad, the WireCutter review is a good place to start your search.
Another cool product I learned about at ABA TechShow, the Just Stand Version 2 allows you to use your iPad as an elmo for presentations. Thanks to Nerino Petro of the State Bar of Wisconsin for highlighting this product. Not only can you use apps for projecting documents on screen, this device doubles as a super sturdy stand for the iPad at a relatively inexpensive cost of $99.99. Great tool for an iPad litigator to add to their arsenal.
