logitech type caseTyping on a virtual keyboard is fine if you’re just sending simple messages or want to type a URL to go to a website. However for longer documents and emails, a physical keyboard tends to be more comfortable, not to mention familiar. Well if you’re the owner of the iPad Air, you might be interested to learn that Logitech has recently announced their new Type+ case for your tablet.

This isn’t the first keyboard case that Logitech has announced for mobile devices, so we guess this is just another alternative for you to consider. According to Logitech, the new Type+ case will offer protection both on the outside and the inside of the case, and has also improved upon its keyboard.

According to the company, “We’ve designed the new keyboard to replicate the typing experience and layout you would have on your laptop – so now you can smoothly transition from one device to another without losing speed or accuracy.” They have also added a row of iOS shortcuts to help users navigate their tablet without having to keep touching at it.

Logitech also estimates that the battery on the case will last users as long as 3 months on a single charge, although this is based on an average use of about two hours a day. If you use it even less than that, we expect you could get more mileage out of it. The Type+ is priced at $99 and will be available via Logitech’s website.
