belkinfastfitIn the market for a keyboard case? Own an iPad mini? You’re in luck! Belkin has just announced a new one for 79.99. This new keyboard case features TruType comfortable keys, function specific keys, ability to hold iPad in portrait or landscape modes, 3 months of standby battery life time, and a minimal and thin design. Here is the full press release for more information:

(Rushden, UK) – 27 June, 2013 – Belkin, creator of people-inspired consumer technology products, today announced availability of the FastFit Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard Case for the iPad mini, the lightest Bluetooth wireless keyboard currently available. The iPad mini case combines a superior typing experience, easy portability and convenient power capabilities to enable users to make the most out of the iPad mini.

At just seven millimetres thick, the FastFit keyboard cover is thinner than the iPad mini itself and ideal for traveling or typing on the go. Secure-hold magnets snap the keyboard onto the iPad mini for easy carrying without the added weight. The keyboard also features Belkin’s TruType keyboard, which provides well-spaced keys for fast and accurate typing. Each key has a spring mechanism that provides tactile feedback when struck, enabling fast, intuitive, and comfortable typing.

“Though the FastFit provides a laptop-like typing experience, it’s a far cry from traditional bulky laptop computers,” said Tristan Lericollais, director of product management at Belkin. “Dubbed the ‘skinny mini’ by some of our team for its demure size, it packs an impressive typing experience and feature set into a small package.”

The case’s low-powered Bluetooth 3.0 connection and 200mAh battery ensure comfortable wireless typing with optimal battery life. The FastFit case for iPad mini can last for 155 hours of active use without needing a charge. In addition, FastFit’s “auto-wake” feature activates the iPad mini when the cover is opened, and puts it to sleep when the cover is closed.

I am currently awaiting the second generation iPad mini before I purchase one, in hopes that it will have a Retina display. Keyboard cases are great for being productive when on the go with your iPad, and at the moment I love the one I use for my regular sized iPad. Using it for school or work is great, so if you don’t have one and are looking for one, here is another to consider.

What do you think? Are you interested in this case? Looking to buy one? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
