The Ultrathin Keyboard mini brings the same features Logitech implemented with the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the full-size iPad. It will include Smart Cover functionality, keys to control the iPad mini's media functions, and full-size EasyType keys for faster typing.

EasyType keys also offer iPad function shortcuts, allowing users to copy, cut, paste, and carry out other common word processing actions. Logitech also says the keyboard will have a three-month battery life, assuming two hours of usage per day.

The new keyboard connects to the iPad mini via Bluetooth, and its body contains magnets, allowing the device to securely latch onto the iPad. It also doubles as a hands-free viewing stand.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini will be available in the United States and Europe beginning in February of 2013. Its suggested retail price is $80.
