San Francisco — Kensington announced the first model in a new family of hard-shell tablet cases to be released this year, the Kensington KeyCover Hard Shell Keyboard for iPad.
The case is designed for second- through fourth-generation iPads and features an anodized soft-touch finish that resists fingerprints and smudges. The removable Bluetooth tactile keyboard is optimized for touch-typists, the company said. The KeyCover also acts a stand in both portrait and landscape modes.
Other features include rubber feet for stability, and automatic wake and sleep modes when the KeyCover is opened or closed. A pop-up stand supports the tablet in typing mode, and the case offers easy access to ports, speakers, and the front and back cameras.
The rechargeable keyboard has a 120-hour working battery life with 200 days of standby time.
The product is available now for pre-order online at Kensington.com and Amazon.com.
