Logitech Ultrathin Folio for iPad Air – Unboxing and Hands On [VID & Gallery]

I’ve had my hands on, and reviewed, the ZAGGkeys Folio for iPad Air, and this time out it’s Logitech’s turn. Although it bears part of the same name, the “Folio” is the only thing similar about the two cases. Unlike the ZAGG, Logitech’s Ultrathin Folio is coated – inside and out – with a rubbery, water-repellent material. It feels fantastic, but does grip on to dust and debris very easily.

There are a number of things to love about the Ultrathin Folio on first impressions. First of all, the iPad is only gripped in place using two corner grips on the right hand edge. This gives the case the ability to be super flexible. Opening and closing the case is as easy as opening a book, and because the front cover has a groove down its center, you can fold it back on itself and rest the iPad on top of the keyboard when you don’t want to use it.

Secondly it the method it attaches itself to the keyboard base. Like older models, it has a magnetic strip running directly above the top row of keys. This enables you to snap your iPad in place without having to rest it in a groove or have it permanently attached to the keyboard using a hinge.

Keys are a great size too. In fact, due to some re-shuffling of less-used keys like Tab and CAPS lock, all the lettered keys are full size and well spaced out.

I’ll write-up a full review at another point, but yet again, I’m impressed by Logitech’s keyboard case. It’s available to order now for $99/£89 from Logitech.com and is available in up to 4 colors (2 if you’re in the UK).

    I also bought the same keyboard folio at Best Buy. When you publish your full review can you let us know if yours has the sleep wake functionality? Mine does not. I have to turn my IPad Air on off using the button which is odd and inconvenient.
    Thanks.

    Eevberry I will do. I was just presuming since other models had that feature. I’ll make sure for the review. Thanks.
