Keyboard is barely thicker than the SmartCover
Archos has announced a new Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad that replaces the SmartCover and adds very little additional bulk. The keyboard is designed for typing productivity and is called the Ultrathin Keyboard for iPad. The keyboard is only 5 mm thick and weighs 240 g.
Archos says this makes it the thinnest and lightest iPad keyboard available and barely thicker than the iPad with the SmartCover installed. When the keyboard is attached to the iPad the device is 13.4 mm thick and weighs about 1.9 pounds and. The keyboard has an adjustable kickstand that allows you to prop the screen at a variety of angles for typing comfort.
The keyboard has an aluminum back and white QWERTY keys. There are also a number of keys for specific and common iOS shortcuts built-in. The keyboard connects to the iPad via Bluetooth and will turn the screen and keyboard on and off when it's closed or opened. Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.
