Logitech launches two new iPad accessories
Logitech has unveiled two new iPad accessories. The first will appeal to iOS gaming fans on the iPad. The Logitech Joystick for iPad aims to give gamers more precise control as well provide a more comfortable gaming experience. The new Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad gives users who need a compact integrated iPad keyboard and case a solution for productivity on the go.
The Logitech Joystick for iPad is a thumb-stick style game controller that attaches to the iPad with suction cups and includes a coiled spring for a force feedback that automatically returns the joystick to its center position. Logitech has published a long list of titles compatible with the new joystick.
The Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard includes a full size keyboard and stand that connects via Bluetooth and charges over USB. The keyboard rests underneath the iPad 2 when closed and is ready to use as soon as it’s unfolded. It is also compatible with Apple’s Smart Cover for iPad and works when closed and rests under the iPad 2, ready to go for the next time its needed.
The Logitech Joystick will retail for $20 when it arrives on store shelves at the beginning of September. The Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard will sell for $130 and will launch around the same time.
