Prolific accessory manufacturer Logitech has just announced two new products for the iPad mini – the Ultrathin Keyboard Folio and Folio Protective Case. First up, the pictured Ultrathin Keyboard Folio covers the entire iPad mini with water-repellant material. The included keyboard also includes iOS-specific shortcut keys for actions like copy, paste, undo, and more. Using Bluetooth technology to connect to the smaller tablet, the keyboard is powered by a rechargeable USB battery than can last for up to three months on a single charge. And along with a typing position, the folio can also lay flat with the keyboard hidden for light Web browsing or movie watching. A magnet system keeps the case securely closed while also activating the automatic sleep and wake function on the iPad mini. Available in three different color combinations, the Ultrathin Keyboard Folio retails for $89.99. The Folio Protective Case is very similar, but comes without the keyboard. Buyers can also choose from three different color selections. It retails for $49.99.
