Belkin FastFit™ Bluetooth® Wireless Keyboard Case for iPad mini Now Available
Belkin’s FastFit Wireless Keyboard is the lightest of its kind for iPad mini
(Rushden, UK) – 27 June, 2013 – Belkin, creator of people-inspired consumer technology products, today announced availability of the FastFit Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard Case for the iPad mini, the lightest Bluetooth wireless keyboard currently available. The iPad mini case combines a superior typing experience, easy portability and convenient power capabilities to enable users to make the most out of the iPad mini.
At just seven millimetres thick, the FastFit keyboard cover is thinner than the iPad mini itself and ideal for traveling or typing on the go. Secure-hold magnets snap the keyboard onto the iPad mini for easy carrying without the added weight. The keyboard also features Belkin’s TruType keyboard, which provides well-spaced keys for fast and accurate typing. Each key has a spring mechanism that provides tactile feedback when struck, enabling fast, intuitive, and comfortable typing.
“Though the FastFit provides a laptop-like typing experience, it’s a far cry from traditional bulky laptop computers,” said Tristan Lericollais, director of product management at Belkin. “Dubbed the ‘skinny mini’ by some of our team for its demure size, it packs an impressive typing experience and feature set into a small package.”
The case’s low-powered Bluetooth 3.0 connection and 200mAh battery ensure comfortable wireless typing with optimal battery life. The FastFit case for iPad mini can last for 155 hours of active use without needing a charge. In addition, FastFit’s “auto-wake” feature activates the iPad mini when the cover is opened, and puts it to sleep when the cover is closed.
· Well-spaced, TruType™ comfortable keys
· Function-specific keys for copying and pasting text, moderating volume and controlling music
· Built-in stand accommodates the iPad mini in both portrait and landscape modes
· Up to 3 months of standby battery life
· Durable anodized aluminium construction makes it lightweight and protects from scratches and scuffs
· Sleek design to minimize bulk
The FastFit Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard Case for iPad will be available from early July on www.belkin.com/uk
