New Backlit Keyboard Case Brings A Rainbow Rave To Your iPad

If you wish your iPad had a keyboard and frequent dark rooms, ZAGG has a case that might be up your alley. Its new iPad keyboard is not only backlit, but also changes colours. Take that, Surface.

The new ZAGGkeys come in two flavours, PRO and PRO plus. Both attach magnetically to your iPad, use Bluetooth, and have keys specifically designed for iOS functions like Home and volume control. The PRO Plus model is the one that brings backlighting to the table, with the option of 8 different colours.

Naturally, the backlighting is going to impact your battery time. The PRO Plus model can go for a few weeks on a single charge if you're using the backlight constantly while the unlit version boasts four to six months. Still, a few weeks isn't bad, and if you're into working in the dark, backlighting is totally worth a bi-weekly charging ritual. Both models are due to drop towards the end of September. The PRO will cost you $US99 and the PRO Plus will be $US129. [Gizmag]


    This looks almost exactly like my Logitech keyboard case, except backlit.

      I think Zagg and Logitech are working together on at least some products. My Logitech wireless keyboard for iPad 3, has Logitech branding on the front, and Zagg branding on the back.

      If it's as good at the K800 I use at home, then this would be great for iPad.

    This is a patent infringement , I'm sure some one has done this first and they need to protect their intellectual properties .

    nice find giz its on my wish list :)

    "take that surface" - are you shitting me?
