Providing users an alternative to the touch interface, Belkin has unveiled its latest device titled ‘Keyboard Folio’ exclusively for the iPad 2. Aimed towards providing users a computer-like typing experience, the accessory comes equipped with TruType keys capable of a comfortable and convenient text input method.
Besides the premium form factor that gives a suede-like feel with stitching, the hard plastic keys featuring on the keyboard with optimal tactical response can help improve typing accuracy and speed. For protection of the iPad 2, the device is built with a stylish and slim appearance from lightweight material along with the Tri-fold design that can easily tuck away the keyboard when not in use.
“People are pretty outspoken in their dislike for flimsy rubber keyboards and the need for a solution that acts and feels more like a true laptop keyboard. We took these complaints to heart and created a keyboard that people not only want to use, but also outperforms other products in terms of typing speed and errors. With the explosion of the tablet market and more people using tablets as a laptop stand-in, people really need accessories that provide enhanced functionality and portability while on the go. Thanks to its ultra-thin design, the Belkin Keyboard Folio enables a comfortable, computer-style typing experience wherever and whenever you need it,” expressed Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management for Belkin’s mobility division.
Additionally, for ease of viewing, the Belkin Keyboard Folio for iPad 2 can be positioned with its adjustable angels for a perfect visual appearance. Cutting off all chords and the hassle involved in connecting and maintaining them, the Keyboard Folio is Bluetooth powered with 60 hours of active battery life and 2,000 on standby. Further on, for charging the keyboard, a micro USB port can be utilized with standard cables.
The Belkin Keyboard Folio for iPad 2 is available at a price of $99.99 with a one year warranty.
