Given that Apple is pushing that the iPad is a viable laptop replacement, companies like ZAGG are offering compatible accessories to meet that need. This new keyboard comes in three different versions, Pro Keys, Pro Keys with Trackpad, and Rugged Book.
“We’re excited to introduce two new solutions for iPad users,” said Brad Bell, senior vice president for ZAGG Brands. “The Pro Keys with Trackpad keyboard unlocks the full iPad potential by enabling more convenient typing, viewing, drawing, reading, and multitasking via swipes and taps on the trackpad. And if you’re looking to keep the iPad in pristine condition, our Rugged Book keyboard is specifically designed to withstand the more demanding elements of everyday life.”
Now it’s easier than ever to use iPad just like a laptop. Pro Keys with Trackpad has a Bluetooth® integrated trackpad, so users can scroll, swipe, and navigate more efficiently than ever. Pro Keys with Trackpad also features a detachable case; an integrated, adjustable stand; precision keys with backlighting; and a holder for the stylus. Use iPad anywhere with full functionality, even with limited table-top space or while on-the-go.ZAGG
