ZAGG announces new iPad, iPad Pro keyboards

ZAGG has announced the Slim Book Go, Rugged Book Go, and Messenger Folio keyboards for select iPad and iPad Pro models. The new keyboard solutions feature a protective, yet lightweight design that boasts backlit, laptop-style keys.

The $99.99 Slim Book Go for the 9.7-inch iPad slides into a bag or backpack for lightweight, easy transport. Multi-device pairing ensures users can connect to two devices and easily toggle between them.

The detachable keyboard can accommodate different work environments, and the reverse kickstand provides optimal viewing with the ability to adjust the screen angle. Laptop style keys are available in seven backlit colors. The Slim Book Go (pictured) features a built-in holder for the Apple Pencil. The ZAGG Slim Book Go is available today for the 9.7-inch iPad, and this spring for the 11-inch iPad Pro, and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Coming this spring, the $149.99 Rugged Book Go for the 11-inch iPad is engineered to operate in harsher conditions. It includes the same features of the Slim Book Go, but adds more drop protection. The TPU-wrapped case can withstand drops from up to 6.6 feet1. The ZAGG Rugged Book Go will be available this spring for the 11-inch iPad Pro.

The $69.99 Messenger Folio, coming next month, provides a lightweight protective case that features a fabric cover for an added splash of style. Designed for the 11-inch iPad Pro, it sports a magnetic lock closure that secures the keyboard when not in use. 

The rechargeable battery purportedly lasts up to three months between charges. Additional features include a tab that holds the Apple Pencil.
