Belkin today announced the launch of a new portable keyboard folio for the iPad mini. Designed to provide a better typing experience in a smaller package, the Belkin Portable Keyboard Case combines a removable keyboard and convenient folio in one slim, lightweight design. "Because the iPad mini enjoys most of the same features as a full-sized iPad, it only makes sense to offer a scaled down version of our award-winning keyboard folio for the iPad mini," said Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management at Belkin. "No matter the size of the device, people want an alternative to touchscreen typing that is comfortable, intuitive and accurate, and our new portable keyboard gives them that option." With a laptop-style keyboard and well-spaced keys for its size, the Belkin Portable Keyboard Case for iPad mini helps reduce typing mistakes common on tablets. It also connects simply via Bluetooth wireless technology and has iPad mini-specific shortcut keys to easily control audio and video. The integrated folio offers sleek, low-profile protection with a smooth inner lining to protect against everyday wear and tear. When not in use, the keyboard folds flat into the case making it easy to pack away and go.
