Archos, a pioneer in multimedia portable devices, hsas just announced the Archos Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad. This magnetic Bluetooth keyboard has a full QWERTY keyboard and fits 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation iPads. This Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad, with a 5 mm ultra-thin profile with an adjustable kickstand, has a very similar look and feel to the Archos Gen10 XS Coverboard.
“‘The needs and wants of today’s consumer have changed drastically over the past few years. Consumers expect everything to be smaller, faster, thinner, lighter and aesthetically pleasing,” says Henri Crohas, Founder and CEO of ARCHOS. “In order to meet this demand we feel that we should share our innovation and design across a number of different platforms.”
This ultrathin keyboard weighs only half a pound. The back casing is made of brushed aluminum, and the included kickstand is adjustable so you can angle your iPad to the perfect viewing position. Just like a SmartCover, the Archos Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad clips magnetically to your iPad screen to protect your iPad while in transport. The magnets on your iPad also means your iPad will dock perfectly to the keyboard and stay there, even if you need to move the both together.
The Archos Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad will be available in March for $79 MSRP. Visit the Archos website for full specifications.
