SALT LAKE CITY —
Zagg announced it has signed a
license and distribution agreement with Logitech for the
Zaggmate case with keyboard.
“This new relationship with Logitech allows us to dramatically
expand our global market presence and scale
manufacturing capabilities to meet future demand, while
continuing to provide creative and superior solutions for
consumers of mobile devices,” said Robert G. Pedersen II,
president and CEO of Zagg. “Working together, our companies
combine strong brand awareness and intelligent
product design with manufacturing and logistics expertise,
and worldwide distribution under the umbrella of the globally
recognized Logitech name.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Logitech will manufacture
and distribute the Zaggmate case with keyboard,
an iPad case with a Bluetooth keyboard, to their worldwide
distribution channels under the name Logitech Keyboard
Case. Zagg will retain the right to sell the Zaggmate for
both first- and second-generation iPad products on its
website, the company said.
According to Zagg, this will enable the company to provide
more products to the global market since keyboard
configurations vary by country. The agreement provides
rights to manufacture and sell the products.
The Logitech Keyboard Case will be available this month
for $99.99. It is constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum
and has a flexible, folding hinge.
