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.
