Apple made the iPad Air much thinner and lighter than the previous generation iPad and that means new keyboards are in order. We predicted they would start showing up soon and we were right. ZAGG, maker of a line of keyboards for the iPad and iPad mini, has announced two new models for the iPad Air.
The ZAGGkeys Folio and Cover are similar in design to two models for the iPad mini that were reviewed by ZDNet. The Folio is a case that completely covers the iPad Air while providing a Bluetooth keyboard.
Like the two keyboards for the iPad mini, both the new Folio and Cover have backlit keys with selectable colors and brightness. They also both have a clever hinge that allows adjusting the iPad Air to a variety of viewing angles to fit the situation.
The ZAGGkeys Cover is the thinner of the two keyboards as it only covers the screen of the iPad Air. The Cover model is my favorite for the iPad mini due to its thin form when attached to the tablet.
