I am a sucker for a good keyboard for the new iPad, I have a quite a few of them. I use the new iPad with physical keyboards for serious work, and a new offering from Logitech looks like it may be the best one yet. The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover combines iPad Smart Cover technology with a full keyboard for the sleekest offering yet.

See the other reviews in the iPad keyboard case series:

The new cover by Logitech attaches to the iPad via a magnetic hinge just like the Smart Cover. The aluminum bottom of the keyboard becomes a protective cover for the iPad that matches the iPad's own metal back. When it's time to use the keyboard, you open the cover which automatically turns on the keyboard, pop the iPad into the holding slot and you're ready to go.

This looks like the thinnest keyboard/ case solution for the new iPad yet, and it is available now for $99.99. I can't wait to get my hands on one of these covers, as it looks like the easiest solution to date for those needing a keyboard for the iPad.
