Logitech unveils iPad mini version of Ultrathin Keyboard

We've been very impressed with the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover and now the good news is there's a version for the iPad mini.

We recently posted an article saying we were impressed by the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad, describing it as "an essential accessory on any train journey with my iPad."
Now there's one for the iPad mini with the introduction of the unsurprisingly named Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini.
It's basically the same as the regular model, only smaller. The keyboard attaches magnetically to the iPad mini, adding just over 200g to the total weight, and like its larger sibling connects via Bluetooth and also does the automatic wake/sleep thing when you open or close the cover.
Battery life is said to be three months (based on two hours per day) compared with six months for the regular iPad version, so it sounds like battery size and hence capacity was one of the things sacrificed when scaling down the design to suit Apple's baby tablet.
Perhaps more importantly, the keys are still "full-size" according to Logitech officials (though we haven't had the chance to measure them), with shortcuts for operations such as copy and paste.
RRP is $89.95, and stockists include Apple stores, Big W, Dick Smith, Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, Myer, Officeworks, and The Good Guys.
