Today Logitech announced an update to its tablet accessories product line with the new Logitech Ultrathin.

The new cover is for iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display and is said to improve on the flexibility and design of its predecessor with an even thinner and lighter keyboard cover, and a new multi-angle slot to adjust the viewing angle.

"The way we use the iPad is changing," said Mike Culver, vice president and general manager of mobility at Logitech. "The iPad is no longer just for content consumption; it is for content creation wherever you go. The Logitech Ultrathin has evolved with the new ways in which we use the iPad making it thinner, lighter and more flexible than ever before. It is the other half of your iPad."

The Logitech Ultrathin which is 6.4 mm thick and about two-thirds the weight of the iPad features a bluetooth keyboard with iOS shortcuts and multi-angle slot which securely attaches to the iPad with a magnetic clip enabling the tablet to be tilted.

Logitech also announced today a new line-up of protective cases for iPad: Logitech Hinge, Logitech Big Bang and Logitech Turnaround, for iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display.

Logitech said about the new products: "The Logitech Hinge is a flexible case with a smooth-gliding hinge, the Logitech Big Bang offers the impact protection like a bulky, rugged case, but comes in a thin and light folio design and the Logitech Turnaround is a stylish, versatile case that rotates to give optimal screen position, landscape or portrait, while protecting the tablet from everyday bumps, scratches and spills."

All of the new covers are expected to be available in the US and Europe in May. There is no confirmation of a UAE release date at the time of writing.
