Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio for iPad takes cues from Surface

Logitech has introduced its new FabricSkin Keyboard Folio for the Apple iPad. The new device is compatible with the iPad 2 as well as third and fourth generation iPads. The device takes some design cues from the Microsoft Surface TouchCover, by integrating a super low profile keyboard into the cover of Folio.

As the promo video below highlights, Logitech focused on using colors, fabric textures and smart design, while it is also thinner and lighter than some of the company's other Folio Keyboard covers for the iPad. Magnets in the covers hold the iPad in either one of two positions; one with the iPad placed in an upright position that is best for typing, while the other lays the iPad flat with the keyboard hidden for browsing the web or watching movies.

As with a number of Logitech's iPad accessories, the FabricSkin Keyboard works with the magnets in the iPad's frame, allowing the cover to automatically wake an iPad when lifting the cover, or putting it to sleep when closing it again. As an added bonus, the keyboard is also splash resistant. Logitech has also ensured that users can easily recharge the FabricSkin over a microUSB port.

The Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio is up for pre-order now at $150, and is available in a range of colors including red, white, black, blue and yellow.
