Ultra-Slim Keyboard Cases

The QODE Thin Type Keyboard is Designed for the iPad Air

— May 9, 2014 — Tech
Belkin's QODE Thin Type Keyboard is an ultra-thin keyboard case for the iPad Air. The 4 mm-thick case is designed to increase the iPad Air's functionality without compromising on weight. In fact, the QODE Thin Type Keyboard is so lightweight that it weighs even less than the iPad Air itself, meaning it weighs under 469 grams.

The keyboard case features a uni-body anodized aluminum construction, with magnetic hinges used to lock the iPad Air into the cradle. The cradle is fitted with a weight sensor which recognizes when the tablet is in place and turns on the keyboard.

The QODE Thin Type keyboard, which has a battery life of 79 hours, is paired with the iPad Air via a single-touch Bluetooth key. It even features iOS-specific keys for easier shortcut control.

The Qode Thin Type Keyboard can be bought for $100 through Belkin's website.
