Belkin’s case is the thinnest and lightest of its kind for iPad mini
Playa Vista, Calif. (Feb. 6, 2013) – Belkin, creator of people-inspired consumer technology products, today introduced the thinnest and lightest Bluetooth wireless keyboard currently available for the iPad mini, the FastFit Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard Case. The case combines a superior typing experience, easy portability and convenient power capabilities to enable iPad mini users to make the most out of their tablets.
At just 7 mm thick, the FastFit keyboard cover is thinner than the iPad mini itself. 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.
“Thought the FastFit provides a laptop-like typing experience, it’s a far cry from a bulky laptop computer,” said Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management at Belkin. Built with anodized aircraft-grade aluminum, the case is ideal for travel or typing on the go. Secure-hold magnets snap the keyboard onto the iPad mini for easy carrying without the added weight.
The case’s low-powered Bluetooth 3.0 connection and 200mAh battery ensure comfortable wireless typing with optimal battery life. The FastFit can last for 155 hours of active use without needing a charge.
In addition, FastFit’s “auto-wake” feature enables iPad mini when the cover is opened, and turns it to sleep when the cover is closed.
