This year’s Consumer Electronics Show has officially kicked off, which means there are more new accessory announcements than you can shake a stick at.
ZAGG, for instance, has a brand new trio of keyboard cases to unveil on Monday. Each are different in specific ways, but they all share the same backlit keys and a dedicated storage option for the Apple Pencil. So, let’s get right into it:
First up is the Slim Book Pro, which you can find pictured in this article. This is meant to be a relatively thin option to protect your 9.7-inch iPad. The case features a detachable keyboard, which means you can get some work done or detach it to keep it a more tablet-only setup. The company says that the 9.7-inch iPad option will be joined with a Slim Book Go case for the 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models later this spring.
Here’s how ZAGG describes the Rugged Book Go:
“Engineered to operate in harsher conditions, the ZAGG Rugged Book Go includes the same popular features of the Slim Book Go but adds the same superior level of drop protection as our other rugged products. The durable 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.”
And, finally, the Messenger Folio which is available this February for the 11-inch iPad Pro:
“The ZAGG Messenger Folio provides a lightweight protective case that features a fabric cover for an added splash of style. A simple, intuitive design with a magnetic lock closure secures the keyboard when not in use while spacious, laptop-style keys deliver a comfortable, natural typing experience. The rechargeable battery lasts up to three months between charges2 and keeps users connected wherever they go. Additional features include a tab that holds the Apple Pencil and provides easy access for when inspiration strikes. The ZAGG Messenger Folio will be available in February for the 11-inch iPad Pro.”
Here’s how the pricing breaks down: You can pick up the Slim Book Pro for the 9.7-inch iPad right now from ZAGG’s website and some big box retailers, priced at $99.99. The model for the iPad Pro models goes on sale this spring and it will retail for $99.99 for the 11-inch model, and $129.99 for the 12.9-inch model.
