Belkin LogoPeople-inspired tech brand Belkin announced yesterday the availability of a breakthrough new iPad keyboard case—the Ultimate Keyboard Case. Using a revolutionary aluminum alloy and magnet construction, Belkin’s Ultimate Keyboard Case is now the slimmest and lightest keyboard folio of its kind on the market, with a keyboard that is just 6.4mm thin and weighing 17 ounces.

“We believe the Belkin Ultimate Keyboard Case will reinvent the iPad user experience,” says Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management at Belkin. “It gives the iPad all of the functionality of a laptop, while maintaining the sleek appeal of a tablet.”

Belkin Ultimate Keyboard Case HoldUnveiled at the 2013 International CES in January, the Belkin Ultimate Keyboard Case marries upgraded features such as a durable aluminum alloy base with a precise iPad keyboard, all in a compact package. The Ultimate Keyboard Case conveniently folds flat to hide the keyboard when watching movies or reading. When not in use, the keyboard automatically shuts off, to offer instant access to the iPad’s onscreen keyboard and help save battery life.

Featuring Belkin’s award-winning TruType keys, the Ultimate Keyboard Case provides a smooth, laptop-like typing experience to minimize errors and maintain typing speed. It also offers a fully protective back cover to keep your iPad safe from scratches, scuffs and everyday wear and tear when the keyboard is attached.

The Ultimate Keyboard Case is available in two color options—black ($99.99) and white ($129.99). Belkin’s Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad is available for pre-order sale online at and will be available at select retailers in May.
