A few days ago I published a review of the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad mini and today it is time to discuss the other option that Logitech for the iPad mini on the market . The Logitech Keyboard Folio Mini is a protective case with a built-in keyboard.

Logitech Keyboard Folio – Design

Logitech Keyboard Folio Mini is only available in Mystic Blue , which of course refers to the outside of the case at the moment. The exterior is covered with a kind of sturdy fabric as you often see it in this type of cases. It seems that the Logitech Keyboard Folio Mini will come.

in black and pink on the market at least

As you can see in the picture above, click the iPad mini in a rubber frame fixed in the cover and on the inside there is a fixed keyboard. A convenient folding the iPad mini as set. A mini laptop down The place where the tablet comes against the keyboard is held in place by magnets. If you close the cover, there are magnets on / off function ensure the automatic and also keep things neatly in place during transport.

Materials are solid but are not called. necessarily luxury The keyboard itself is made of plastic and fabric exterior, for example, had a leather cover also been a lot more luxurious. But it all feels solid and sturdy. The package is otherwise be quite thick, about equal to three iPad minis stacked together.

Logitech Keyboard Folio – The keyboard

Since it has a keyboard that is processed in a protective case is Logitech was tied to the size of the iPad mini, here and logically it is therefore impossible to process in this limited dimensions. a full-size keyboard Like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover Logitech has chosen to make regarding the layout of the keyboard.

a few choices

As with many keyboards Logitech is no separate row of function keys but that combined with the numerical row, of course, again to save the necessary space. A few special Logitech specific keys to select the iPad make it easier text are also other places to find now.

The island-style keys are not full-size, but still reasonable. the choices described above large There are, in any case, keyboards on the market that have to do. Piece with a smaller keys The keyboard itself is attached to the cover and is kept as thin as possible, with the result that the ‘travel’ of the dabs is not very large. Where the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover the attack is pretty stiff this is not chosen in this case for this adjustment. Slightly offset The touch of the keys is quite light and therefore clearly feels softer.

Logitech Keyboard Folio – In use

Personally I’ve never been a fan of covers with a keyboard. They are usually just annoying that the fattening properties of a super mobile tablet just a bit about shadows. But the already small size of the iPad mini feels pretty different than in larger tablets. Once inside the sleeve feels like you have a pocket book or magazine in your hands a lot. It does not fool many on the mobility of the iPad mini. It struck me all the way along.

choice for such a solution, of course, all about the keyboard itself and you have yet to get used to as a user. The custom layout still requires a minor adjustment to the way you tap a key. Of course, this is enhanced by the combination with the already smaller size of the whole system. With a little getting used to is good tapping on the keyboard, but you remain the soft touch yet clearly the feeling that you’re a small system to work, something that I had much less in the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover .

iPad mini is pretty easy and the cover so to click for ‘normal’ use of the iPad Mini would be a choice, yet it is again so that this the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini weather which is better regulated. In terms of protection wins this cover the course well. All ports and buttons are perfectly usable and is also the cut-out for the camera handles nicely. I have no problems encountered during use.

Logitech Keyboard Folio – Conclusion

I think it’s already pretty clear that I am very much excited about the keyboard that I’ve previously tested. Still, I can imagine that this case is a better option if you want to keep. Your iPad mini necessarily completely spotless and without scratches Unfortunately it makes you thin iPad mini or a piece stockier but that is inherent in the choice of this type of cover. A bigger problem is that the soft touch combined with the custom layout of the keyboard even after getting used to not feel super fine.

Logitech Keyboard Folio for iPad Mini is available for about 80 euros and I recommend everyone to both the other option of Logitech as a full-size keyboards to consider. All options have their own pros and cons but if you have a high priority optimum protection are then hear this cover top of your list.
