If you want to use a keyboard with the new iPad Air, but don’t want an integrated case, Rapoo’s new E6300 Ultra-Thin Wireless Keyboard looks to be a reasonably priced option. Measuring in at only .22 inches thin, the keyboard offers full-sized number and letter keys. There are 15 iPad-specfic hotkeys like homepage, search, picture frame mode, play/pause, mute, and more. The back of the keyboard houses the lithium-ion battery that also lifts the device into a comfortable typing angle. Small rubber feet protect the keyboard from sliding around on smooth surfaces. With Bluetooth 3.0, users can connect to their iPad from a maximum distance of 30 feet away. The keyboard only needs to be paired with the tablet once. Even though the keyboard retails for $49.99, you can snag it at Walmart.com now for a steal at $26.88. It is available in black or white and comes with a recharging cable. If you're interested in finding that perfect case take a look at This Week In Accessories: iPad Air Case Madness, Part 1. I'll also be back tomorrow with another round of case choices for the tablet.
