Logitech introduced its second trendy folio-type keyboard for the iPad called the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio, which is an extremely slim package featuring a near-flat keyboard that is seamlessly fused into the folio cover a la Microsoft's Touch Cover for the Surface. A magnetic clasp closure keeps the folio cover closed, and various other magnets allow the FabricSkin to form into a stand as well as serving as an auto wake/sleep function for the iPad.
The keyboard itself connects to your iPad wirelessly over Bluetooth and features a full-sized key layout for a comfortable typing experience. Not to be confused with the touch-sensitive Touch Cover for the Microsoft Surface, the FabricSkin keyboard is covered with a special fabric that lets you type with tactile feedback which Logitech claims nears a laptop typing experience. Both the interior and exterior of the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio is protected using a liquid-repealing coating for extra durability.
