(TS) – Archos has been adding to its iPad accessories lineup with a new Archos Ultrathin Keyboard, which will be available in March 2013. It could be the thinnest and lightest keyboard on market that measures just 5mm thick and weighs 240g.
The keyboard is also very light weighing 240 g making it the thinnest and lightest keyboard available for your iPad according to Archos. The company says that the keyboard is so thin it’s nearly the same thickness as the iPad SmartCover when it’s attached to your iPad.
The keyboard features an adjustable kickstand that allows you to adjust the angle of the iPad when you’re typing for comfort. The keyboard has an aluminum back with white keys and looks exact like you would expect an iPad accessory to look. The keyboard has a full QWERTY arrangement and uses Bluetooth to connect to the iPad.
Henri Crohas, Founder and CEO of Archos explains: “The needs and wants of today’s consumer have changed drastically over the past few years. Consumers expect everything to be smaller, faster, thinner, lighter and aesthetically pleasing,”-”In order to meet this demand we feel that we should share our innovation and design across a number of different platforms.”
The keyboard is designed with what Archos calls super-silent keys and offers shortcuts for the most common iOS commands to make working faster. The keyboard uses a rechargeable battery promising a month of use per charge. Archos also fitted the keyboard with a magnetic closure similar to what Apple uses in the SmartCover. The keyboard automatically turns on when you remove it from the iPad and automatically turns off when you attach it to the iPad for mobility.
The new Archos Ultrathin keyboard will start shipping in March for $79
