Logitech announces iPad 2 folding keyboard, joystick accessories


Designed to work with the iPad 2, Logitech announced the Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad. Powered by Bluetooth, the keyboard attaches to the bottom of the iPad and is designed to travel with the Apple tablet.  When in use, two sides of the keyboard rotate out and lock into place to form a full-sized keyboard. When the keyboard is unfolded and locked into place, it automatically powers up for use with the iPad 2. It also turns off automatically when unfolded and can be recharged through a USB connection. It’s also compatible with the iPad 2 Smart Cover, thus both can be used to protect each side of the iPad 2. The keyboard also acts as a stand when in use and includes a variety of keyboard shortcuts to highlight areas of text within an app like Pages.

logitech-ipad-JOYSTICK-BTYLogitech also announced the release of a thumb-stick style joystick for the iPad or iPad 2 specifically for use in games that require an on-screen joystick. The clear plastic joystick attaches to the corner of the iPad with two small suction cups and uses a coiled spring to return the joystick to the center position. When not in use, the joystick comes with a small carrying case to travel with the tablet. A sampling of notable, compatible games include Madden NFL 11, Splinter Cell Conviction, Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies, Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles, N.O.V.A. 2 Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance,Resident Evil 4, Ultimate Spider-man: Total Mayhem, Geometry Wars: Touch and Real Racing 2 HD.

The Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad is heading to both the United States and Europe in September. Priced higher than the Logitech Keyboard case by ZAGG, the folding keyboard will  run an approximate retail price of $129.99. The Logitech Joystick for iPad will be released in the same locales in September for an approximate retail price of $19.99.
