New Keyboard Case Combines Laptop Typing Experience with Lightweight Protective Case
Playa Vista, Calif. – July 25, 2013 – Belkin today announced its Slim Style Keyboard Case, one of the first Bluetooth® keyboard cases designed for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. The chic new case seamlessly transforms the Galaxy Tab 3 from a tablet into a sleek, functional work station built to withstand intensive typing sessions.
"Our new Slim Style Keyboard Case for the Galaxy Tab 3 truly lives up to its name, delivering dynamic productivity capabilities through a classic design that complements the tablet’s slim appeal," said Ohad Zeira, director of product management at Belkin. "As one of the very first keyboard cases available for the Galaxy Tab 3, this introduction allows us to continue our momentum as the number one provider of cutting-edge tablet accessories."
Outfitted with proprietary TruType™ keys, the laptop-style keyboard features well-spaced, responsive keys providing extremely fast typing capabilities and greater accuracy than the tablet’s touchscreen buttons. The keyboard case features function-specific keys that allow users to directly copy and paste text, adjust audio volume and control music tracks.
The Slim Style Keyboard Case is built from high-grade materials for a thin and lightweight finish that only adds 20 ounces of weight and 15 millimeters of thickness to the Galaxy Tab 3 while encasing the tablet in full protection.
For maximum comfort, the Slim Style Keyboard Case features an innovative viewing stand that can be adjusted to multiple angles. When not needed for typing, the stand can be folded flat and out of the way, allowing users to seamlessly transition to viewing content on the Galaxy Tab 3 HD screen.
Key features include:
- Laptop-style keyboard with TruType keys for faster, comfortable and accurate typing
- Sleek design provides slim and lightweight form factor
- Bluetooth keyboard has over 60 hours of active battery life and more than 2,000 hours of standby battery life
- Innovative stand for multiple viewing angles
- Comfortable handheld mode for reading and viewing
- Pairs with Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch through Bluetooth wireless technology
- Rechargeable using the included USB to Micro USB cable
